At the risk of dragging this thread out, could you please
elaborate (in a few sentences) what your understanding of “Context” is ?

cannot be bothered to make explicit, and the answer is simple – be bothered to
make it explicit, then you have no need for context.

do not doubt John's knowledge.
fact is, he never addresses my ideas.
"cops out" by telling me to do my homework.
do not do my homework,
is an obvious non sequitur.
