That is a real question. Why do people in comments revert to Shakespeare-speak for a modern comment on a modern issue, where "I think" will do? Why avoid the phrase, "I think"? I find it so unnatural, so irritating that I drop reading instantly and with prejudice that is extreme move to the next comment. At that point nothing the person thinks could possibly be worth finishing. And yet it appears often and it is stilted stupid and weird. Nothing at all against stilted stupid and weird locutions, I like them in fact, but that one reversion to early modern English bugs me to no end. It seems to have a single source, "the lady doth protest too much methinks." I think.
Is it distancing or what?
I'm developing an opinion people are hesitant to say "I think" and the reason I think that is because I hear it in hesitation constantly, Ah ah ah I think. And worse, now that I'm sensitized I find it annoying, extremely so, because I realize I'm listening or reading someone unsure of their opinion, or wants listeners to sense uncertainty or soften whatever it is as opinion and I don't like that.
Stammering is becoming unbearable especially when people are drawn specifically to express their opinion on any given issue. Not so much in real life, but certainly when professionals are called upon specifically to express their opinions, out with it and stop stuttering.
I heard one time the word "barbarian" comes from the way English speakers sound to non-English speakers, "bar bar bar bar bar." It is actually a Greek etymology but the same thing. Yesterday I heard a professional opinion maker put the barbarian smack onto his opinion by starting out stammering, "Are are are are are these things going to ...." *click* my ears cannot tolerate another moment. I'm actually considering canceling cable.
