Oh but it is a "mistake" that is "allowed" by you but no one else can make
them. This is the crux of this situation, not the fact that a mistake was
made by anyone, but that you attacked some one for making an incomplete
statement (at least as you saw it) than you went on to do the same very
thing. Yet, when you were called on it (very politely I might add unlike
the manner in which you did) you retreated with tucked tail and started on
the spelling, grammar and math skills of others.
Ironically enough, you STILL have not explained why you felt it necessary to
jump in and attack the way you did. Is it because you are trying to defend
Snoman? Against what? There is a HUGE difference between he and I, first
my post was not in direct reply to someone asking a question or seeking help
as where he has a habit of doing so with useless information. Would you
like examples? Second when I do reply directly to someone in need of help
the information I provide is not detrimental or harmful as where his on many
(though not all cases) is. Again would you like examples?
Again Steve, what exactly is it that popped your cork about my post, other
than I omitted either SIG or MAGNUM? What is so ungodly hard about
explaining your actions?
IIRC, the whole thing started with your statements about jumping up in the
middle of the dark and stormy night and shooting at every movement and sound
with your ".357". And then, I took exception of that from a safety
standpoint, and we were off to the races from there.
Did you get it that time, Pookie?
I'm even more amazed at the poor reading and comprehension skills of you
Comprehension is tough for you, isn't it? Not only is it important to state
your thoughts in a clear, concise manner, it's also important to understand
what others say to you, regardless of your perception of their short
This is a paradox. Either they have intellectual potential (as I believe)
or they are "dumber than a Q-tip." Though I would place you in the latter.
Given your posts in the "guns on campus" thread, this is a hoot.
By this I assume you mean your "rest stop" buddies in the afformentioned
"Guns on campus" thread.
Egad, I really embarrased my self with that one. Composition was another
area in school in which I was weak and I've worked to correct it ever since.
After a few adult beverages on a Friday night I sometimes slip into my old
After re-reading Steve's remarks I see what he means. Sometimes my
comprehension is flawed too. At least I can admit it. Therefore, I retract
my "paradox" statement.
Thank you Beryl for taking the time to correct my mistakes.
Actually, I did quite poorly with English during my school days, and I
haven't suffered an ounce of consequence for it. Do I spell every word
in my posts correctly? the answer to that would be an emphatic NO. Do
I go out of my way to? again, NO!
I work for a very secure company, I make top wages in my field, and
the future for my family and I is secure. Have I attended any schools?
NONE! Everything I know is via hands on. Intelligent people don't need
college, trade schools, or anything else of that nature to be
intelligent productive members of society making good wages and
worrying about the security of their jobs. So what if they use
chatroom shorthand?? BIG WHOOP!! we're all guilty of it. Like the
other posters have said. It's all in the way they lay out the
description of their problems. Quit knitpicking and do something more
constructive with your perfect punctuation!!
I've seen people in high paying positions who can't distinguish the
difference between many English words, and yet there they are with all
of their education constantly making spelling errors in company
literature. Does it make them dumb as a box of Q-Tips? NO.
All You have managed to do is point out your own ignorance to what
real intelligence is all about. This country wouldn't function if not
for the C average English using population. Be thankful we're here...
We keep your shit running for you because You're incapable of doing it
Your post was most eloquent. I just have trouble giving any credibility to
someone who writes something like, "their are two many trucks inn the road",
and doesn't have a clue they made a mistake.
As a former tradesman, I agree with you. There's the guys who sit around
and talk about it and plan it and plot it, then there's the guys who get out
there and get it done.
I'm sorry you were unable to grasp my post. What I said is that it is sad
to accept unacceptable behavior and to foster it by not seeking for a higher
standard. To wit: even azidiot's posts have come up a noticeable notch in
his use of English since this thread started. He is using upper case
letters to start sentences, and using more punctuation. He is spelling
better, and I can't say if that is because he is watching what he posts
more, or just turned on the spell checker. HE IS MAKING MORE SENSE.
Before, he looked like a crackhead with a typewriter. Now he is looking
better. And I think it's because he's just thinking a little more.
I am glad you are successful. I have known many successful men who were
lacking in skills. Yet, in today's world, those people are becoming rarer
and rarer. And many times, I see that people hit the "glass ceiling" when
moving up in a company because of their skill levels which prevent them from
going any farther. And almost always, the position goes to a younger better

Ya know, at least I have enough "respect" for a lowlife, self righteous
pompous ass to use his "proper" screen name. To bad that at the age of 58
you don't have the same respect.
Silly lil boy , the following is from one of your posts:
He doesn't know what the hell he is talking about Roy, his head is too
far up Snotard ass to hear, read, or write in a manner that every one
else can understand. About the only thing that we could all
understand and slightly agree on was we were all sick of the Bible
Talk about double standards.

So does it really matter?
Just as long as you have the correct letters at the beginning and end of a
word, the letters in the middle are in the correctly spelled word and it's a
word that the adult reading it has seen before. Still that is a pretty
It only matter in the areas of perception and credibility. People who speak
in dialects, like street talk, and expect others to do the same and to be
able to understand are perceived as what they are, and are given very little
So yes, we can understand what's being said. It's just so much nonverbal
