This morning I realised why I'm such a wordy bastard.
Because I don't know how much I can assume my audience already knows.
I was trying to write a technical article, and in defining my terms I end up in philosophical discussion about the meaning of life.
I.e. Why is it bad to unsubscribe in dispose? Why do I care? What is bad? Why am I here? If a tree falls in the woods and no-one's there to hear it, does it make a sound?
I give up.
