Reading between indirect lines are sometimes just a way to avoid the outcome of people's lack of humility, tolerance, understanding, compassion, and such. Innuendos are used to obtain something people don't deserve. You could look at any conversation nowadays from any part of the population in any context, the amount is unbelievable. I think that says a lot about society. Bring this back to the first lesson we have learned in humanities class: Egoism vs Altruism, this concludes that people, in order to save face, intend to say words indirectly, which eventually leads to misunderstandings due to the infinite meanings of indirect language. A society based on egoism (not economically but emotionally) implies that the society is not united. We're not building mutual knowledge anymore, and this aspect is being exploited. It is also doing massive damage in building shortcuts in our thought patterns.
