Yes. Getting rid of punches is a great idea.
Getting rid of moral commands from above is a great idea. Getting rid
of the far too definite *the* and the far too limited *ten* are great
ideas. Getting rid of *Way* would be good, too, although that seems a
touch less pernicious. "Some suggestions," yes indeed. "A few
recommendations." "A mixed bunch of hints, clues and possible
shortcuts, offered IMHO; check my credentials with people who know
me." Like that?
