Many people think verbosity is impressive, as RD showed in Postmodernism Disrobed, and suffices such as -ic, -al and -ical are fertile ground for this error. I would have hoped Steve Jones would rise above it, but it seems all opponents of "the New Atheism" (read: not shutting up) are the sort of person who focus on style more than they do on substance, both in how they judge others and in how they conduct themselves.
