True. Perhaps the actual point should be that to communicate effectively, you need to act on an accurate model of the audience's likes and dislikes. But...hey...wouldn't that mean you might say different things in different ways to different groups of people while trying to communicate the same message? If you aren't careful you might become a politician.
