Eliezer, why are *all* of your posts so long? I understand how most of them would be -- because you're trying to convey complex ideas -- but how come none of the ideas you convey are concise? Some of them seem like attempts to pad with excessive "background" material when simple tell-it-like-it-is brevity would suffice.

I thought this post was legitimately long, but this just came to mind when reflecting on past posts.
