Brevity Is Important
Paul likes brevity, so he was discouraged when he received a really long and confusing error message. For those unfamiliar, "brevity" is defined by Merriam-Webster as a shortness of duration, or a shortness or conciseness of expression. To elaborate, it is the ability to describe a potentially complex idea in as quick a way as possible, leaving out extraneous details that would serve only to confuse the listener. If extra details are needlessly left in, listeners' eyes will glaze over and they'll stop paying attention to your message, which is why it is of the utmost importance that an idea be expressed clearly and quickly. Also, be sure to phrase your message in simple language. Overly uburbulous words will klologe readers if they have deblionic vocabularies. When trying to write humor, knowing when to end a joke is important, too. God damnit, here's your screenshot.
