Let’s say you want to communicate an idea X.
You would do well to simply say “X.”
Also acceptable is “X. Really, just X.”
A slightly riskier strategy, in cases where miscomprehension is especially likely, would be something like “X. This sounds a bit like A, and B, and C, but I’m not saying those. Honestly, just X.” Many people will inevitably start arguing against A, B, and C.
Under no circumstances should you say “You might think Y, but actually X.”
Equally bad, perhaps worse: “Y. Which reminds me of X, which is what I really want to say.”
For examples see the comment sections of the last couple of posts, or indeed any comment section anywhere on the internet.
It is possible these ideas may be of wider applicability in communication situations other than the internet.
(You may think this is just grumping but actually it is science!)
