What a fear ...

Sparse and unorganized.

Not completely but I have, quite often, difficulties to follow you even
when I know more or less the subject and understand to what you are
referring, otherwise I'm completely lost. In part for me is a personal
issue with English, in part difference in background knowledge and in
part other less clear factors.
Now it is absolutely not my intention to vaguely criticize your work
without constructively proposing something. I know how much is hard good
writing, especially good /technical/ writing. I am only raising the
problem hoping in some suggestions from other members.
> Is someone out there thinking "huh? what is he talking about?"?
It is not exactly that for me. But baiting a virtuous circle where I ask
clarifications, you replay, based on this one I suggest something, we
all converge toward a mutual understanding and finally some work is
accomplished .. it's a little hard for me; I'm too slow, for scarce
linguistic competence as usual.
So I'm inclined to think and rethink, waiting some other comments and
hoping that in the meantime the matter is more clear to contribute. I'm
trying to avoid deep mutual misunderstanding as in the past because it
causes negative effects, frustration above all.
