in thread strip out anything inbetween brackets

While understanding the viewpoints of Jasper and Smylers, I have to say that ww makes a good post.

I myself (an American English speaker) was somewhat confused by the usage of brackets as opposed to parentheses. I only smiled slightly at the use of "speech marks" - which simply looked odd to me.

It is most understandable that certain cultures/languages say things differently (as noted by our two friends across the pond). However, I have learned that these things are, in fact, commonly used elsewhere simply because of the post. And while it is prideful to think this site belongs to any particular culture, I think ww was attempting a very polite way of gently suggesting an alternative, which was perhaps more in tune with "programmer speak" than "American English".

In short... ++'s all around! :P

    The toughest part of any technology project is communicating. Communicating the original specifications can be excrusiating some times and communications among team members takes up much time to ensure that every idea has been effectively passed between team members.

    English is a wonderful language, it borrows from other languages whenever it feels like it. There is almost always more than one way (and often many) ways to say the same thing. It reminds me of a certain scripting language...
