I know it’s hard sometimes, especially when you need to please your boss, but if someone is going to see your writing, make it shorter, simpler and easier. Here’s a query from Amazon next to their new "comment on a review feature."
My question is, does "yes" mean "yes it doesn’t add to the conversation" or does "yes" mean "yes it adds to the conversation"?
There are dozens of easy solutions, starting with longer buttons ("Yes, it adds" vs. "No, take it down").
We would never settle for mechanical devices that work as poorly as our language does.
