Let me be a little more accurate here, Radiomike.
By transferring from Second Person ("you") references to Third Person references, our communications become consistent with what radio already is - an indirect medium.
Besides that which is the most important element, Third Person references are unlimited in number where there is only one "you".

The detailed explanations can be found in a number of fields including Transformational Grammar - a real snoozer for all but the keenest of afficianados. Fortunately, we (radio-types) don't have to know all that to execute the principles any more than a slugger needs to understand physics in order to put bat on ball.

"Suck" is what we already do, Radiomike.
The principle, meanwhile, is quite simple to articulate, but somewhat difficult to execute... at first.

It is as follows: By trading in all Second Person ("you") references for Third Person elements, radio becomes an indirect medium.
And that's it for today's freebie. :)

So you want us to "suck" too? Is there a concrete principle to apply here?
