To Emperor Liu: I was only pointing out one of the oxymorons of the English language.

希望你不会把我当成废人讲废话。

I am referring to people who still say it despite knowing something goes without saying.

Hope you can understand my meaning.

Though it's needless or obvious, people are kiasu and need to say it to make sure the other party knows exactly what is meant!

I agree with what joepsc said.

Some people just have to 'spit it out' to get it out from their chest. 'Say for the sake of saying'. :p
