Arguing and talking to people who actually use their brains (well, most of the time)
Don't understand well. Do you mean here there are no such people and so they leave to meet up with them somewhere else? Or you actually mean otherwise?
The source of any bad writing is the desire to be something more than a person of sense--the straining to be thought a genius. If people would say what they have to say in plain terms, how much eloquent they would be.
