Interesting thread, I just wish you would have skipped trying to make it sound overly intelligent because it caused you to make a lot of grammatical and syntax errors which made it rougher to read in some spots than it needed to be. No need to try to impress anyone on ATS, just write normal, we'll still S&F.
Wow, how rude.
I'm not trying to sound intelligent, and I'm not trying to impress anyone. Instead, I'm trying to bring an interesting story forward for discussion. If you disagree with how I've decided to present such a thing, feel more than free to bypass the thread and move on. After all, the last time I looked, no one was forcing you to read and then subsequently post.
There's simply no need to try and try and insult anyone as well. It's completely unnecessary. Now, if you have anything of value to contribute, I'd love to hear it. Thanks.edit on 18-5-2011 by Rising Against because: (no reason given)
I agree that it was a rude remark !
It is a great subject and you were obviously trying to put as much information and quotes into it as possible, so some spelling mistakes etc, are bound to creep in. It is not helped by the modern trend on the internet of spelling words in whatever way a poster thinks is correct, although this way of spelling things stupidly developed way back in about 1963 and was very quickly dropped as many people could not spell correctly afterwards, this sort of corruption of the English language has happened again, due to the internet and it is sadly here to stay.
So criticise poor research, bad data, bad attitudes, but remember that when you criticise other peoples spelling, you must run every future one of YOUR posts through a spell check, to avoid being called to task about it.
Being corrected doesn't bother me. I'd rather be corrected so I can do something correctly next time than to be patted on the back for doing something wrong. I don't understand why people in today's society see a simple correction as rude. I could understand if I called him stupid and talked down to him, but I didn't. I even praised the subject and shared my two cents.
You folks are being way too touchy over nothing and for some reason find it necessary to defend something that can be proven to be a wrong. This is my third time saying it, but that's one of the main problems in society today, nobody wants to be told they're wrong, ever, even when they are. And when someone does step forward, others, who have NOTHING to do with the situation, point fingers and try to make that person out to be some kind of "monster" for daring to offer a correction. Grow up. Deny Ignorance. Stop defending it.
