I think for some kids it's easier to just tell us what "haters" we all are, then go back to their underachiever friends and say how us old guys are holding them back...
Built-in excuses for failure, toooo easy for them to use them. I tend to ignore the messages if I can't easily read them, I have better things to do and I have this crappy attitude about people that can't take the time to post an easily read post, why should I take my time to answer. Now knock the puncuation and caps from this post and run them all together with misspellings and there you have: Little respect, IMO.

Yep. And to think I actually initially sided with him....


I hope he enjoys crawling under the rocks like so many others who'd rather blame someone else instead of really trying.


In a while, Chet.

Part of the problem is too many are used to chat rooms, forget the punctuation, forget the grammar, forget the spelling, and most of the time forget the whole word. Then when they come onto a regular site some have the nerve to insult or ridicule our ways. It's a shame. Jerry

Language is how we communicate.
Writing is important, itīs a tool, and I see no reason why I should spend time deciphering what you want to say.
Like stated above, I too tend to ignore badly written questions.
You should raise your level, not expect us to stoop to yours,
the written word is in front of you everyday, if you canīt take notice and learn what can you do ?

Imagine if math were treated the same way.
2+2= 4.5, well itīs near enough, you knew what I meant.

I suppose it's different if what you want to say just comes out wrong.

I remember a chat with a friend about his holiday to the USA.
He told me he was waiting in line at a kiosk in a train station & couldn't take his eyes of the gorgeous big-breasted woman serving behind the counter. When it got to his turn, he said:
"Two pickets to Tittsburgh, please!"
I said: "Yeah, s'funny how that happens. Why, just last evening, I was sitting down to dinner with the wife & was just about to ask her to pass the salt, but it came out as:
"******! You've ruined my life!"

There is a lot more to education than just bildin engins. We also try to educate you in other things like spelling and grammar.
