It may be. Can you prove it?

Alternately, can you phrase his request unambiguously? If so I may be able to help. As it stands I have a few guesses as to where he might be going, but no firm ideas and certainly not a complete understanding.

I was asking for clarification on what you found oxymoronic in my request for unambiguous phrasing.

I can't tell if I care, because I can't understand you. The above flurry of posts was an attempt to get someone, perhaps Pi, to translate.

If you were more clear and explicit this wouldn't be needed, but that's life. You may be unable to write that way, or you may be unwilling to put in the effort. In the former case, that's a pity; you may have an interesting idea that no one will be able to get at. In the latter, don't expect others to do the work of extracting the information for you!
