I'm sorry, but that is simply not true. Unless Finnish is not your
native language. One of my Finnish friends (we've since lost touch)
was one of the most chatty persons I've ever known. He may have been
uncharacteristic for a Finn, but even so. Ole hyvä, don't blame it on
your language.

I like short and to the point too. But we run the risk of being
misunderstood nonetheless.

right call here.
