If you can understand what's being said, it's a go, no?

No, you should also be somewhat concerned about how easily it can be  
misinterpreted.

Why?

It should be obvious. The reason for speech and writing is to convey an  
idea accurately from one person to another. If your speech or writing  
results in someone you are trying to convey an idea to getting the  
wrong idea, you have not communicated the idea that you meant to  
convey. Understanding what was said is not the same as getting the  
correct idea across.

IOW, the onus for clarity is on the poster.  In a written environment  
like this, clarity if of the essence.

Read My reply to FTR, linda....

Re: Is it all just smack talk? (was- Re: xxxxx is a gun-toting danger to others.... report him?)

It isn't obvious to Me, FTR.
You assume way to much about how people respond, or write responses to  
what you call obvious. I'm not trying to be contra, just pointing out  
that what you read is how YOU percieve what is being said, not what I  
or others percieve what is being said.
I understand most of the time, but I translate most of what I read into  
My language, and that is prolly why dimmy ron and dusty try to put Me  
down about My language skills.
I think I do fairly well here, don't you?

because that is what different written languages are all about - if you  
start to write in a nearly undecipherable language, then no one can read it  
that does not intimately know the base written language you are writing in -  
be it english, french, arabic or cantonese or evem cuniform - can you  
imagine if some of the historic writers wrote slang in a language that was  
being deciphered 1000's of years later - that may be confusing to the  
researchers

If one has ever been involved in looking at their ancestry, the need for  
clarity is apparent.  I took a class once and was told that the most  
important thing to do when dating things, is write out the entire year.  
  And it makes sense.  Written language has none of the nuances or  
visual clues that you can use when speaking to people.  Clarity becomes  
much more of an issue I think.

 You got me there, but I still giggle when I hear some accents.  :)

Can you really tell a Cali accent from a Oklahoma accent? I listen to  
the guys on "Street Outlaws", who are from your area...the phone area  
code; 405 to be exact, and to Me they sound just like Me.

That's what many people say about SO CAL residents, so it must be true.

Have you ever seen the racers from that show, "street outlaws"?

I think I watched the show a time or two, but it's not really my kind of  
tv show.  ;-)

It is My kind of of show for sure. I owe a verk long list of tickets to  
street racing, and having to go without a drivers license for a long  
time. Going from zero to 130 in under 12 seconds is a real adrenalin  
rush!

Mike.... Dusty used a false argument as to why he is allowed to shoot  
someone. He said he deliberately posted a message without XNA in  
order to leave a record of his warning.... even though he knew he was  
massively exaggerating any threat to him. He was laying the ground  
for his false excuse that he would be shooting in self defense.  

Usenet lawyers can argue about this for ever so instead I suggest we  
let the local authorities determine if Dusty's a danger and if they  
need to take any action.  

There is a precedent for this in SE. Aardvark was worried about being  
atacked by a gunman and reported it to the police. In this case the  
concern is significantly greater. Amongst many other things he has  
said, Dusty wrote....  "I have a masters degree in cruelty. You just  
don't understand how far I'm willing to go."  

There's an anonymous tip button here and maybe that's the thing to  
use. If we each made an individual report then the police could form  
an overall view of the situation and decide for themselves what to  
do. It is best not be alarmist or vindictive.... but at the same time
it is best to report a potential danger.

, armed robbery by crank addicts is quite
common.

In the US, gun ownership cannot be taken away unless he has committed a
firearms related offence,
