Forgiving the contractions and weak verbs, because frankly I don't plan on writing an article on this template, this template lacks anything resembling style or interest to the reader. Orwell would shit his pants reading that read "Politics and the English Language" if you want realistic and credible writing advice.
The writer did absolutely no thinking in composing that phrase. That's what you say when the waiter mentions the restaurant's special on fried squid testicles. Give me a clear position and argue it. And stop with the damn contractions.Created Date: 6/12/ PM.
