Dadgummit, I been a fan of yer ritting fur a long time, but then you had to git all uppity on me. That there comment 'bout Arkansas dang near made me
drop my home brew. Hit stung so bad I couldn't even finish reading this here thread afore I answered you.
Air you asayin' that us hillbillys ain't able to be unerstood? I've been to three hog callin's, two county fairs and a hangin', and I ain't
never heared the like of that there insult. Bein' as I reside in the great state of Arkansas, I hafter speak up fur usin's.
This here ideal language you seem so set on jest don't exist. Words, and how folks use 'em and spell 'em, is like a livin' critter. I kin read
Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John jest fine, but that don't mean I go 'round spoutin' "thee" and "thou" ever day. Folks down at the Dew Drop Inn'ld
figure I was offen my rocker was I to do that.
The fact is, as our ol' world grows smaller with this here whiz bang cyber whatchmacallit, whar everbody kin talk to everbody, hit ain't polite to
worry as much how things get spelt, as hit is the idears behind the words. And jest as shore as the sun comes up in the east, a hunnert years from
now, folks in yore neck of the woods will be speakin' English a sight diffrent than you do now.
Now I kin unnerstand you most of the time, 'ceptin' when you use some of that Aussie slang. And I do 'preciate yore tryin' to raise standards
here. I myself have a fifth grade edjermacation, and I woulda went on through schoolin', cept I thought hit weren't right to pass my Daddy by in
grades. And I will go on upholding the great state of Arkansas, where we all unnerstand that the world is about what we know, and not jest how we say
