What the hell do I do with my tail? Do I wag it or do I swish it? Is tail screming canonical? distress

If anyone's curious where this question came from:

I am very torn on this issue because explaining terms of art upfront risks over explaining and being patronizing, however not introducing terms of art risks alienating people and puts a burden on your audience to have to speak up which might be hard to do.

I've been having some feels around terms of art use. I'm curious which approach people of the Fediverse use when conversing about a technical topic.

• Terms of art that the average observer outside a particular field wouldn't understand are explained when they are used. Example

I used a Fourier Transform which is a signal processing technique that takes a time domain representation of a signal into the frequency domain...

• Terms of art are not explained until someone asks for clarification. Example:

I used a Fourier Transform...

What's that?

Oh, a signal processing technique that takes a time domain representation of a signal into the frequency domain...

Also Me: Hasn't seen a cis person in a week.

Current mood: smashing tab to try to auto-complete my thoughts in a conversation.
