Scan the past year's postings here to see the good sense behind "terseness ... is of minimal importance" All benchmarks use my own BIPU (biological information processing unit) Note only really useful and important postings were analysed: Postings by Jeni T: mean reading time 5 mins mean comprehension time 5 mins (synchronous) Postings by Mike K or Dave C mean reading time 0.3 seconds mean comprehension time (asynchronous) 5 hours. Of course other BIPUs, especially those of a considerably later manufacturing date than mine (1947) may show a less startling difference in overall processing time.
