Does who agree with you? I don't understand whom you're referring to. I would imagine that you'd have to get there in your native language first. Joseph Conrad was remarkable; people like that don't come along very often. There aren't very many people who are that good in their native language; the ones who do it in a second language are even rarer. I set the 10 at 100,000 words because there probably aren't more than ten or twenty people alive in the world at one time who have that rating. Well, also because it's a power of ten.
