    Also like I said before, we mathematicians seldom use symbols in such density, words are generally (a) less confusing, and (b) easier to remember. I guess going all-symbols is more useful for you CompSci types, but when your primary form of verbal communication is a blackboard, words generally make life a lot easier.

    I like words, words make sense! Symbolising everything just leads to reading the same sentence over and over till it eventually makes sense
    Nah dudes :cool:
    Symbols are defined such that a representation can only have one meaning. Words are imprecise. An example is the word 'prime'. We could be referring to and of three different types (one of which a layman would assume, one of which is essential in cryptography and another) - no problems when defined in symbols.
    Many other examples exist.

    And don't get me started on how poor the english language is at representing lists :mad:

    Words may give rise to ambiguity, but they also have the power to remove it.

    Facebook's like a spammer's wet dream atm, I swear at times its worse than hotmail. As I type, I can see something about "pay us £5 and we will give you £1000" and "Cheap holidays" right now. :rofl:

    Seriously? I think you may have worded that incorrectly - surely you know how anyone can do that?

    No, I worded it correctly, just more in the sense of "how the hell did they do that without meaning to".
