Nuna, the guy wrote every post like he was trying to get hired at a magazine. 5 words of pompous filler for every one of substance.
Actually, he was, for a number of years, a writer for many a different magazine or publication; typically medical in nature. He would travel and call on docs and other people researching for whatever subject matter his editors wanted... So if he was a little verbose and used lots of big words, it stemmed from the fact that he was extremely well read and educated on many subjects and actually DID write for mags/medical publications.
