A curious choice of topic for this mailing list, if I may say so.  
Nevertheless, I do agree with you that Stephen Wolfram seems to have a  
rather awkward writing style.

However, in my humble opinion, one should be wary of using Yahoo! Answers  
as a source, as it is populated almost entirely by trolls. Of course, I am  
sure you would not wish to be associated with such a thing. :-)

Best,

O. R.
