I imagine that you intended only the quoted matter in the first offering to be taken as an example of ... context. Andreski certainly thinks they are total bollocks but it would perhaps be unfair to take his word for it.

Yes, I intended the quotations to be example of pleonastic opaqueness. Thought you might enjoy Andreski's comments, since he seems to agree with you.
(Incidentally, does the whole of the first offering (snipped) count as a single sentence? It includes a two-sentence quotation (above). Honest question, as Polar used to say.)

I'm not sure - depends how you count, I suppose.

Pleonastic! Thank you. A fine addition to my vocabulary.
