    about my intentions.

    If you do not care to understand the use of the word as it applies to someone just as the articles, and his family, do, that is your choice.

    "as his family was attempting to get [Hastings] to go to detox," the report stated.
    Maybe do some reading up on the word and its definitions before reposting your same objections again.

    Global warming & smoking cigarettes = Nothing to worry about? Those who deny climate science are ignorant, evil or worse. Google Fred Singer.

    •  When you have more than one person in a diary (0+ / 0-)

      with so few comments objecting to your wording in your headline,  you have a problem. Not me.

      If you wanted to be clear, all you had to say was that he'd relapsed. People understand relapsed quite clearly. I don't think you're trying to be clear. Which is the first rule of good writing -- clarity.

        a rule you just made up? I have had scores of people object to my diaries in the past, but that does not make them less wrong.

        I think it was nitpicking at best, however I edited the title for you.

        Are you happy? Do you have other objections or is my wordsmithing up to your satisfaction? Would you care to comment instead of the substance of the diary instead of merely a word in its headline now? If the 1st rule of good writing is clarity, the first rule of good commenting is  substance.

        You're being deliberately misleading.
        Your opinions on this post are puzzling at best, wildly accusatory and ridiculous at worst. More than one person agrees with me too.
