On bad adjectives in motions and briefs

This post from the Uncivil Litigator is about a reply that includes the sentence: "X's motion is patently frivolous, obstructionist, and a self-centered waste of legal resources."

Ah, when I have time, I go back through a paper and whack all the mean words, like these. For that matter, I try to whack all the stupid adjectives I can. Adjectives, in written papers, don't win cases, to my observation.
