Hello all users!

There is more than one way to do a liver detox. As such, it is easy for innovators to call an effective, ineffective or potentially hazardous regimen a valid detox plan.

Shouldn't "as such" be replaced by "that is why"?.

What do you think?

Thank you.

If you click on Edit Post, highlight all the text, and click on "Remove Formatting" (the second button in the toolbar), it will enlarge the font to make it readable. Then please add the missing spaces that have occurred in the pasting process, and add the missing question mark.

It works. What about my question? Could you express your opinion?

When you finish correcting the post by adding those missing spaces, I'm sure we'll take a look at the question.

I am sorry but there is nothing I can do about my PC being unresponsive.

I agree. The text needs a vocabulary detox.

Is it an answer to my question or to my comments on my PC's irresponsible behaviour?

If it were a comment on your post about your PC, GoesStation would have quoted the post about your PC, not the one that was actually quoted.

Perhaps, but I should have answered the question explicitly. Yes, Jacek, your suggestion would improve the text.
