You have everything to say about this, and nothing to say about this.

There is a level of inexactitude that becomes associated with this dis-associatively.  But, if the conditions are such that merit a more meritocritous sufferance then the better nurturance is not within the confines of the disassociative  venue but rather without.  Seeking the unsought becomes the unbecoming manner as well as the intrinsically implied unseeking of the sought.  It is mostly exactly the opposite in reverse.

Reb, I didn't know you were such a dictionary! Okay! So maybe I did...but who knew until now?

I like this. That is, looking for something that you don't want to look for(at least in a forum where no material and/or peer return is assured or expected) manifests itself as both inelegant and unnecessary and, at the same time, a way of avoiding what is, in fact, being looked for.

Darn, it's hard to say everything and nothing... turns out, as Brad pointed out, I still wound up saying something.

Ok, so if I'm having some thoughts, and someone said, "your thoughts are worthless," does that mean they didn't occur to me, and are indeed, worthless?

that would be clearly a mistake... all thoughts are worth a penny... unless they aren't solicited in which case I think you have to pay someone two cents

Worth would be defined as a value that is as individual in its estimation as to the person, desire, or need to which it might be applied.

I agree with Sunshine.  Worth may neutrally mean almost any quality.
But it often has the meaning toward the virtue or goodness in something as well.
