But we should try. Complex I know.
If that's not what people really mean, then they should say what they really mean. If people say something that is different than what they mean, then they shouldn't be surprised when people think they mean what they said.
And I don't think you speak for everyone, so I can't simply take your word for it that everyone else means what you say they mean.
Your second paragraph completely undermines your first paragraph. Strong work.
Wrong. Your reading comprehension needs work.
Brad: When people say X, they actually mean Y
Me: If people mean Y when they say X, then they should just say Y instead and shouldn't be surprised if people believe they actually mean X.
Me: Also, I can't assume that Brad speaks for everyone, so there's no way for me to know if he is actually correct when says people who say X actually mean Y. I would need more people who say X to come out and say they actually mean Y.
My statements are not in any way contradictory.
