I look out the door and see drops of water falling from the sky. That's a sign that it's raining because is presents what is defined as rain to my senses.
Epistemology has been with us for more than 3000 years. Briefly stated, it's the study of knowledge itself.This is a fact, law of physics, scientifically proven, touchable, outside of our heads, everyone sees it the same way etc. The rest is opinion because it's based on how you personally look at it, other people will look at it differently.
I don't know how to explain it any better so this is it from me.
I like this definition because it notes that some walls are intentional. And I do think that sometimes it's pretty obvious when it's intentional. Here are some ways to possibly tell if the wall of text is intentional.I know you enjoy writing in an essay form, but Internet users generally want to read simple stuff.
Here's a paragraph from wikipedia:
Some walls of text are intentionally disruptive, such as when an editor attempts to overwhelm a discussion with a mass of irrelevant kilobytes. Other walls are due to lack of awareness of good practices, such as when an editor tries to cram every one of their cogent points into a single comprehensive response that is roughly the length of a short novel. Not all long posts are walls of text; some can be nuanced and thoughtful. Just remember: the longer it is, the less of it people will read.
Finally, my lament is exactly that. I lament that people are often too caught up in their emotional response to a subject to stop and carefully analyze what the other person has said and respond in a thoughtful manner. And I lament that they, too often, instead, attack the persons motives, their personal hygiene, and anything else irrelevant to the subject at hand. And I lament that, in defense of a pleasant experience, a forum of any type, has to restrict what can be discussed.
