I was going for "to the point", a quality that I have found in most of
my Aussie friends. A quality that is usually quite refreshing, but can
be problematic online, where conversations often escalate into
something less-than-polite (and less-than-useful, which is worse) due
to lack of body language as a hint of one's hon-ne.
