"This would eliminate the use of certain silly loopholes based on mercury compounds, as well as nipping in the bud the nitpickers saying 'nuh-uh, this here's a long range missile system!' or whatever they decide to call their vehicle. These changes might eventually result in a bottom-up rewrite of the whole sentence just to be less awkward, but there's nothing sad in that."

Hello,

Thank you so much for your suggestions! You raise some valid points, which made me reconsider my wording on multiple sentences. I would however not like to ban the use of mercury in electric propulsion, but your point about the phrasing was good.

As such I will probably be doing a bottom-up rewrite of the last sentence to remove potential loopholes in the near future. Thank you again for your advice!

Sincerely,
Rho Ophiuchi

“Ambassador, I support this proposal in principle, since it would be terrible if her highness Anne of Cleves III gets mercury poisoning anytime soon. However, and I’m not sure if other ambassadors will agree, I feel that you should at least add two more operative clauses to balance the number of preamble clauses and operative clauses.”

Dr Justin Obama, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs: I'm pretty sure the damage caused by short range missiles themselves is far more harmful than mercury in the atmosphere. Why don't we just ban the whole thing?

No. No. No.

On the topic of the proposal itself, I give my support.

Hello Ms. Schafer,

Thank you for your support. After consideration of your advice, the number of preamble and operative clauses has been equalized. Thank you for your input.

Hello Dr. Obama,

Such a ban would be incredibly strict, and would be unbecoming of a relative newcomer on the international stage such as myself, not to mention likely to anger a wide variety of other nations.

Hello,

I am just bumping this thread. If anyone else has any opinions on the legality of this proposal I would love to hear them.
