Shouldn't we be using words people will understand?

I don't have a PhD as many people don't.

I had to go look up the big $10 word ... gainsaying.

Couldn't you have simply said contradict or something to
that affect?

I must admit I did appreciate the opportunity to be
educated once again, but others may not take the time to
go find the definition.  Google doesn't have that word
defined.  I had to go to dictionary.com.

So, people stop using big words to show off your large
vocabulary and start following the guidelines.
