Here is an imperative sentence: "When appropriate, omit relative pronouns".
I try to understand what this sentence really means to a native speaker.
Option A: We say that using optional relative pronouns is generally a bad idea and there should be as few of them in a text as possible.
Option B: We are not incline the reader to omit optional relative pronouns. We say that using optional relative pronouns can be a good idea in some cases (for example, in technical manuals) and a bad idea in others (for example, if you are writing a fiction book about street gangsters, with a lot of dialogues. I suppose these guys would omit words such as that and which whenever possible). This is what I'm really want to say.
Or maybe something different?
