This is one of the threads in a new member area of another forum I'm on from a mod.

Title:
"Typing like a moron makes you look like a moron. PLEASE USE DECENT GRAMMAR.

I'm tired of it. I am completely tired of it. If you join this forum, and want help with some specific issues, or want opinions on a scenario, you must able to communicate with us properly. That was a forum is. Communication on a detailed topic. Making it easier for others to understand what you're talking about allows us to properly help you in a timely manner. We're all here because we want to be. It's OUR free time. No one is paying us to help you.

Chances are, if you decide to make a 10 line long paragraph of nothing but a giant run-on sentence, I'm not going to take 10 minutes of my time to try to decipher your poor excuse of an attempt to elaborate on whatever the hell you were talking about.


Moron examples include:

1) if u lyk to talk lik dis u r a moron

2) IF YOU DECIDED AN ALL CAPS RAGE MAKES YOUR POST SEEM TO STAND OUT MORE, YOU ARE A MORON, AND I WILL DELETE YOUR THREAD.

3) If you decide to make a sentence that explains a problem you're having but then decide on no lets keep elaborating on this then well talk about a cat you had in the third grade and died then talk about that mad fast celica you saw on I30 last night when you went to hang out with your main diggy dog best friend and sonic which in turn makes this a giant pain in the *** run on sentence which hurts our brain.

The point:

Periods and commas do wonders and can convey a clear message. I would assume we all passed the third grade, and understand what those tiny little marks can do. I understand the internet can let us use a bit of slang, but constructing an entire paragraph out of gibberish will not help your case. So if you can't construct a readable message, don't expect us to respond to it."

There are forums out there that go from one extreme to another. This one is not as bad as some others as we all have observed.

Point.
That's why I see Dizzy here and only here and its a new "term" that just drives me nuts.
We can have great discussions here without adding stupidity.
Yes, I myself have made some real dumb posts and arguments. And have been proven wrong. But I still make my best attempt at completing correct and understandable sentences.
Im glad this topic is at least humorous if anything.

And you more than likely are aware of how much we APPRECIATE that. (because you do too.)

But, not everyone is like that. Unfortunately. Nature of the beast. For the posts that are mostly gibberish, I might make an attempt to decipher it, but, I am not going to try real hard. If I can't, or won't.... then I just don't post at all. See if someone else is feeling particularly intuitive. (or, is that 'masochistic'?)

We don't do too bad here. At least, not in the 2nd gen section. Sure, we have some real doozies on occasion.... but, you are going to find that no matter where you go.
