You know what, I'm not very impressed with your writing. You don't think lay opinion matters but I should conduct an "experiment." Do you even know what the word experiment means? (Hint: You don't conduct them by seeking opinions.) Some editor! LOL! Do you feel I insulted you by calling you "lay"? I certainly didn't mean to imply anything negative about you personally. I think a forum like this, by the way, is pretty informal, so I don't demand perfection of expression from myself. I also think most people would understand what I was getting at -- the idea that lawyers would give you a better idea of the quality than non-lawyers. I am really sorry that what I said offended you.

FTR, I am a lay person when it comes to the law, and to the analysis of someone's writing. So, no I wasn't offended by that in the slightest.
It is your attitude that neither I nor anyone else here at FR is worthy of your lofty "precision," that offends me.
