It's more of a syntax/grammar rearrangement thing... also, maybe, having to re-enjamb lines to accomodate for the changes...

On a purely nitpicky note regarding your post (which I was going to mention in my last comment to you but decided not to... yes, I think you could ditch a few 'ing' suffixes also, so that it's more compact, and more present-tense.
