Everything you said regarding writing essentially falls under the "every sentence/paragraph must have a purpose" rule. The purpose can very well be humor, breaking up the dryness of the post, maintaining a friendly, jovial tone etc. As long as the purpose is clear, and followed, then there isn't an issue.The intent of the author is what determines those purposes. A "serious" article, as Elmouth posits, has very different intentions than the generally humorous but still informative article you have as your premise. The resulting article should look and feel very different accordingly, but need not violate the basic rules of organized thought and writing to do so.I essentially hold that the article failed at times to maintain this basic order, and that this is true so long as it wasn't Rossi's explicit intent to do so. Whether the article is "serious", "humorous" or "casual", I do not believe that disorganization is inherently necessary.But that's enough from an anonymous armchair editor.
