has anyone besides me: the in-school, still-tries-to write-in-proper-english person noticed that not many people know how to use commas, or periods, or even freaking smilies.....I spend more time reading over the post a thousand times trying to make sense of it, than I do replying...

thought i'd point it out.

yeah, I am guilty of this. I will try harder to write the way it was designed to be done.

This is only a mild representation of the problem, there are much worse out there. Sorry I picked on you moosen. It was the closest example I could find.

I too am guilty. I often times will think faster than I type, and my fingers just can't keep up :p . Once I am done, I am usually too lazy to go back and proof read what I just typed.

I will try and make a better effort.

By the way:

Effect is a noun
Affect is a verb

that is just a pet peeve of mine while we are on rants

Pain in my ass

You’re right, one threw ten spell out, 11 on up use the numbers… TAG, nice call! I am so glad all of us have a good sense of humor…

I use to be horrible at English but the um-tee-dozen English classes I was required to take in order to get my degrees sure helped out. Now I have a two pieces of paper that I paid good money for (still paying on) that state I is collage egemacated…

I agree.

The one that gets me is when people type "prolly" instead of "probably".

I never really noticed TOO much, but then again the Camaro is something to get excited about so of course we're all gonna misspell and misuse the punctuation. As long as no one says that 'yall' isn't a word, im happy!

It's a word, if you spell it "y'all", ppfftHAHAHAHA
all right, just kidding, of course. I am glad we've got sense of humor on this site (the Camaro kinds of people are good people, the Corvette kind are just richer ). I can come home and log on, and not have to worry about being "politically correct" all the time, Give me a break...

Yeah just so you know, whether I'm gaming or in forums, or eveb cell phone and IM texts...I do not put up with typing like an ignorant 8 year old.

If you have to ban me because I am an asshole, that sucks...I just think if you can't handle the language, then don't get on the computer.

I do my best to drop subtle sarcasm first though.

We don't ban for simple language. But...we do try to watch the use of certain words as best as we can. As you know, it's all about using your best judgement. If something is a wee bit out of place, a few $%#@'s will end up in the word or it will be deleted (depending on what's said). I have no problem w/ @sshole and other most other words. But, let's not let it get to cuss words in every other post. That was happening a while back with another member....didn't like it too much.

We do take care of our members here...which goes back to the rules about being disrespectful and slamming other members. Disagree, but do not attack. This is why we have the wonderful world of PM. If there's a problem w/ a member, hash it out through PM's. Don't do it for all others to see. A little subtle sarcasm doesn't hurt, but let's all try to leave it at that for the threads.

I love that name. I love having a trash-talking section on any forum...but I like to trash-talk. IF we had one, that should be it's name.

As much as I DO love to trash-talk those I don't like...I have a feeling that if we had a dedicated section - it would 100% garanteed leak out into other parts of the site, and destroy the atmosphere we have here...

All I am going to say is my =P smiley stays. I've been typing that for years.

All the rest I'll go into advance and click to add them.

I know a couple of members here have mentioned that to me as well. But, and I'm sorry to those who talked to me, but I have to agree w/ Dragon. I can see that spilling over and tension created in numerous threads.

It's not like it's make-it or break-it for the site to not have one.

That being said, on forums where they have a dedicated flamage section, it becomes completely intolerant to have and trash-talking elsewhere...any that pop up are moved to that forum immediately.

We really don't need one at our current size however.
