Some of these people started at a young age correcting their mothers and making them self feel smart. As they grew up they got smarter but their mentality didn't grow with it. So you have what is called a smart A** . But that's ok so long as they remember that they had to stand on my back to get there !

Cool avatar but you're way too sensitive, man. Why perpetuate this by posting another long rant welcoming a kick? Nobody cares if you make a typo here and there as long as you offer up something constructive. I'm willing to bet the first person mentioning "spell check" was probably trying to be helpful. I'm not trying to be a prick, Black Lion...just offering up an opinion....Best of Luck.

[b]greenmountainpatriot[/b] hit the nail on the head. [b]Black-Lions[/b], if a couple of people here picked on your spelling, and that's been the worst thing that has happened to you this week, you need to get over it. If this is going to be one of those "...and I'm taking my ball and going home" kind of posts, let us know. I'll go make some popcorn. Get over it!!! BTW, this is the internet. None of us really exist, anyway. We're simply scripts created by Imbroglio to give you the illusion that you're interacting with real people.

The purpose of posting is to communicate ideas and information. It doesn't matter to me if you scratch it in the dirt or on a grocery sack as long as I understand what your trying to tell me. Let the english teachers have their sport at our expense, I can take it. The meanest thing that I can do to them is to just let them be themselves. That is revenge enough for me.

I don't have a problem with a typo or a simple spelling mistake here and there. However, it is a problem when the spelling and punctuation is so bad that I have to read a post several times in order to understand what a person is trying to say. Juggernaut: You neglected to highlight in red the word "hole" in the next to last sentence. Sentences may begin with prepositions but not with the conjuction 'and' which is used to link.

You may also like to try a more formal approach. I have attempted to translate your post: A dispatch directed to all that are without error: To all whom do not need the services of a spell check. For those who gain pleasure from pointing out the gross errors in other member's posts then mocking them for their lack of skill. To those who claim a man is an imbecile for illustrating how a company swindled an individual. It is obvious that concepts such as honor and truth are merely words to be mock with cliches. I see my absence is not grieved. You were denied the forum to abuse my rural sensibilities and mock my sense of honor and truth. In this spirit I present to you; a new forum for your condemnation.

Frankly, a few typos or bad grammar don't bother me too much here. As long as I'm able to understand the basic ideas the author is trying to provide, I'm satisfied. I would agree with the person who posted this same sentiment earlier in the thread. I do notice them readily, though, because I used to be a proofreader. I'm sure I make a few here and there (we all know you can't proof your own work). What really bothers me is at work, where prospective machinists must pass a spelling test in order to be employed, but management does not have to spell anything correctly, in spite of the availability of spell checking in Word. The ridicule we visit upon them is well-deserved.
Link Posted: 5/31/2003 3:41:08 PM EDT
OK, now that I have a frame of reference.... The original post in the provided link is almost incomprehensible. Typos and misspellings are one thing, being incapable of basic written communication is another. Your original post falls into the latter. You can be Einstein inside, but if you're beetlejuice (from the Howard Stern Show) on the outside it doesn't matter. Also, since this is really just a continuation of your crying, if I wade through your horrible grammar correctly, it took 3 days (from what you say your time of order was) for you to get it instead of 2? You're right, those goddamn crooks! I guess I'll order my shitty AK and Makarov parts from someone else from now on.

I would love to see them guys shoot! When I was 13 my father left us with nothing but a 12 gage wing master pump and my mothers 22 Remington bolt gun. It was old but a true shooter. Well, the money ran out and the electric was turned of but we had a gas stove so she could still cook. I use to go hunting about twice a week to get what I could to feed Mom and my little sister who was 8. This stayed like this till my 10th year of school and I dropped out to go into the Army so I could help out my Mom and sis. When I went into AIT in Benning the first time out I shot a 94 and they told me I didn't have to shoot any more which made me mad cause I liked shooting the M16. And incase some of you was wondering I did get a GED when I turned 34. Its not much but I didn't give up.

I guess I'm one of those "perfectionists," and although I'll spend a lot of time getting an email or fax just so, or "suggest" to a co-worker that he re-write some piece of correspondence that looks unprofessional or downright illiterate, I'm not going to waste my time criticizing or correcting someone's post on an internet forum. If you are comfortable with posting a badly-written message on a public forum, then it's your deal, but don't cry/whine/snivel like a li'l bitch when people gripe that it's difficult or annoying to read your post. If you want to read some really aggravating posts, go to one of the import car enthusiasts forums. There you'll find things written in "thug-speak," aka "dumbshit poser-ass doomed to-remain-the-shallow-end-of-the-gene-pool lingo." Example for your reading pleasure: "Yo, what up dogg? Yo, I waz rollin wit my ho's (9 of 'em, all supermodel-class beyotches) dis weekend in da Civic, jus' chillin' yaknowhatmsayin, an i pulled up to dis stoplite, yo, and sittin' next to me wuz dis phat ride, yo, like a lexus, yo, on like dubs, yo, an' i looked over an'dis chump sucka was scopin' mah beyotches, and I can't be havin' dat, yo, so i gives him da "WTF" sign and he gives me da "u want sum?" sign,so i gives him da "don't make me get whutz in my trunk" sign and he gives me da "you best get to steppin, yo, else i get out dis car and phuck youz up" sign, and I wuz abouts to get outta my ride (and I be 6' 8" and 350 lbs, and I gots 6 black belts in Mah-Jongg, yo), but then da light turnz green and we both got on it and da tirez wuz spinnin and da smoke wuz rollin and da ho's wuz screamin and and punk-ass in da lexus wuz right at my door but then all four of my turbos (one for each cylinder, yo) spooled up and then I hit the NOSSSSS and that punk-ass sucka just disappeared...musta put 70 car lengths on him in less than a block, yo. I guess it wuz overkill, but suckas gotta be respectin' me, yo, and I bet that next time dat sucka be seein' the old Honda "H" he gonna be cringin' wit fear and shizzle. yo. "Lo, my contempt for punk-asses knows no bounds," sayeth the Snail.
