Comment: Watch the language, everyone.

(See in situ)

Watch the language, everyone.

Watch the language, everyone.

"Better serve you." "Serve you better."

Better than what?

When "better" and "worse" are used, "than" is supposed to follow them. Better and worse are comparison words. Loose language, big problems. Especially when the language is from people who know the significance of language, such as people who run massive businesses.

They know what they're doing when they say "better" without saying "than," and they know most of us, the commoners, don't know what they're doing because our language skills are poor and consequently our logic skills are poor. (Logic from logos. Logos: word or words. What is language? The description of action on the physical plane or mental plane and that moves to its opposite plane.)

When "better" or "worse" is without "than" or is with "than otherwise" and this usage is from a large business, that comparison is that business enslaving you. If "than otherwise" is said, then you ask why and how -- get the person to talk about what's involved in the betterment to understand if what's advertised "better" is in fact better.

Service can go only so far without it entering your privacy. This entrance to your privacy is the wiping away of your privacy. On this subject, business service and the individual's privacy, I prefer service capabilities of late 1990s and early 2000s.

Watch the language. Comprehend language.
