fixing an ironic grammar mistake.
The wise Hedge Trimmer will quickly learn that a very good grasp grammar, and attention to when nuance and detail ''are'' important, can help avoid {{Edit War}}s.

tweaked picture size to get rid of the weird overlap with the sentence "Word Cruft is Alien Kudzu " that looked like it was a misaligned caption.

some insight and advice from an unappologetic hedge trimmer with some experience in doing without being a nuisance
A lot of polite wiki authors are uncomfortable with outright deleting fragments, which result in a [[WikiSchizophrenia sentence full of exceptions]] and {{weasel words}}. Meanwhile, the Hedge Trimmer is a merciless subspecies of [[Administrivia/LumperVsSplitter Lumper]], editing things down to be as concise as possible like a sheep goes at grass. While how long an article is usually depends either on how much one writer can ramble or how long a good explanation needs to be, the Hedge Trimmer figures an article should be as long as its assumed effect or importance. [[MemeticMutation Too Long; Didn't Read]] is used unironically, and some articles are thought not to dignify the use of the scrollbar. Discussion pages especially are glossed over like Martian instruction manuals. The core reasoning is, whatever the standards of the appropriate format, they will cut and mutilate it to fit into that. The Hedge Trimmer can only avoid getting into {{Edit War}}s if he has a very good grasp of grammar. If WallsOfText are overgrown ivy, bits of (perceived) {{Fancruft}} are stinkweeds that kill bees and eat birds. One side-effect of conciseness is most Hedge Trimmers edit articles rather than start them.

Meanwhile, the The Hedge Trimmer has [[GoodIsNotSoft no such hangups.]] The Hedge Trimmer is a merciless subspecies of [[Administrivia/LumperVsSplitter Lumper]], editing things down to be as concise as possible like a sheep goes at grass. While how long an article is usually depends either on how much one writer can ramble or how long a good explanation needs to be, the Hedge Trimmer figures an article should be as long as its assumed effect or importance. [[MemeticMutation Too Long; Didn't Read]] is used unironically, and some Lumper]] more interested in maintaining articles are thought not to dignify the use of the scrollbar. Discussion pages especially are glossed over than starting them. To these tropers, a trope article or works page is like Martian instruction manuals. The core reasoning is, whatever the standards a garden. A garden in need of the appropriate format, they will cut and mutilate it to fit into that. The Hedge Trimmer can only avoid getting into {{Edit War}}s if he has a very good grasp of grammar. If trimming. WallsOfText are overgrown ivy, shrubs to prune into topiary. {{Thread Mode}} is an unpleasant vine that infests example sections. {{Natter}} is a parasitic moss that grows on other statements, and bits of (perceived) {{Fancruft}} are stinkweeds that kill bees and eat birds. One side-effect birds. WordCruft is AlienKudzu. The Hedge Trimmer seeks and destroys all of conciseness them. A full blown {{Signal To Noise Trainwreck}} may induce TranquilFury. Tolerable levels of cruft vary depending on the individual hedge trimmer, and can be influenced by how amusing the rambling is or how long a clear explanation needs to be. In extreme cases, [[MemeticMutation Too Long; Didn't Read]] is used unironically, and even for the most tolerant shear-wielders some articles are thought not to dignify the use of the scrollbar. Additionally, Discussion pages tend to be glossed over like Martian instruction manuals.[[note]]As, after all, they only contain ''more'' irrelevant natter which ''cannot'' be trimmed.[[/note]] While they can tear through articles like a chainsaw-wielding psycho through a group of camp councilors, most Hedge Trimmers do have the best of intentions. Whatever the standards of the appropriate format, they will cut and mutilate their targets to fit. Ultimately the Hedge Trimmer's goal is leaving a page they edit articles rather than start them. in a clearer and more pleasant to read state. The wise Hedge Trimmer will quickly learn that a very good grasp grammar, and attention to when nuance and detail ''are'' important, can help avoid {{Edit War}}s.
