Illiterate Morons

Post by Ddrak » Fri Jan 21, 2005 1:32 pm

The original thread is locked, but I just had to say something on this little gem:
skabanger wrote:...i dont need english lessions. my spelling sux yes , and maybe ther are them people out ther that have to point it out just to make them selfs feel better , and as far as my gramer goes i dont feal the need to put peroids and such in , i dident know i was back in school wher it matters if this wher school yes i would use the proper peroids and commas and such but im not so shuve it up your expletive deleted and go teach a class are somthing wher thay care.
and oh ye i allredy droped a 100$ are so on english 101 i cant help it that i have AD/HD and my mind races and i thank faster than my hands can type and on top of that i went to crappy elem schools and that my high school was a football factory and as long as you played football you dident even have to atend class to pass , so beffor you make fun of some one thank about the fact that not all of us are pirfect like you
People like this annoy me excessively. Proper English (even vaguely proper English) allows you to communicate with other people. It's morons like this that have mastered the art of making noise but haven't yet gathered the collective brain cells to work together and realize that the whole point of making noises is for someone else to hear and comprehend what you are trying to say.

You learn English in school so you can make yourself understood. Morons like this who think people don't care that you are at least legible and then make weak excuses about not being in school any more and follow it up with their disability and poor childhood sob stories are just worthless disturbances in the gene pool.

You know what? On the internet and especially on message boards everyone gets a clean slate. What you do with it is your business but you'll find very little sympathy for begging not to be judged on your communication skills. The amusing thing is that in his final "sentence" he is far closer to the truth than he probably realizes. Not everyone is perfect, but at least some of us try to get as close as we can and refuse to wallow in illiterate uneducated indignation when someone accurately points out that you have the absolute inability to communicate on a messageboard.

I just don't understand why people can't spell on a computer. 90% of people have Microsoft Word installed on their machines, and I'm sure there's an online spell checker readily available for people who don't have it.

Why not just try? It doesn't matter if you decide to be a nice guy or a jackass, but at least have the common courtesy to be legibile.

I hear ya Embar. I'm always worried about more people going to college than ever (assuming they graduate), because the world needs sanitation engineers damnit!
I honestly wonder how the world would work if everyone was educated. Who would be the garbageman? would cum laude grads become the new blue collar? scary stuff to us lazy people...

People who use ADHD as an excuse for acting retarded bother me even more, Ddrak.

I was sitting in class one day a few terms back when the instructor passed out three pages total of The Elements by Euclid. It was a history of science course. One guy somewhere behind me pipes up and says, "I can't read this it has too many numbers." I wanted to laugh but quickly realized this person was dead serious. He then said "I have ADD I can't read it." To which I really wanted to respond "No, that's dyslexia and you're a dipshit."

I remember working at a hotel as a night auditor for about a year when I first started attending college. Every night I had to read memos and front desk logs which was fine, but the thing that killed me is that my boss could not use there, their, they're properly. Or appeared to know the difference between to and too. Arg.

I also worked at one place where I got into an argument with the operations manager over the words 'daydream' and 'nametag' which she insisted were two words. She had flunked out of college and was proud of it. She made sure to remind me literally every day that I was working there that I was her boss and she didn't go to college, so 'living in my head' as she said, wasn't important at all.

I found out later after I'd left that she had been fired.

Personal rant aside, if anybody does want to improve their writing in I'd recomend The Elements of Style. It will help anybody polish their writing up.

The Internet is a text medium.

Fucked up text is the equivalent of a speech impediment.

BTW, I've overcome dyslexia through some hardcore bootcamp training back in the NYC public schools in the '60s. It sucked, but it worked. (They'd have me sit and work on my penmanship with old-fashioned nib pen and inkwell, in practice books from the 1920s, for hours at a time.)

The same school system got rid of my lisp and stutter to the point where I speak publically professionally, but either can come back if I think about them too much or get really drunk.

Back then, the thinking wasn't "Aw, the poor kid has a disability, let's cotton to him," it was "This kid talks and writes funny. Fix him."
