        Good sir, I work for the government.  You wouldn't win any awards for opacity and density of prose, as some gentles appear to desire with all of their... let's just say hearts, but certes you would fit in comfortably with my colleagues of the bureaucratic persuasion.  My somewhat more direct scientific colleagues, however, while they would understand your meaning, lamentably may declaim "WTF is this guy talking about?".  (Although I have been asked to peer-review scientific articles prior to acceptance for publication, I have never been requested to become an editor. I remain mystified as to why this may be so.)
