Terrenial, your anger seems a bit misdirected. Yes, this thread is about annoyance towards poor use of language, and as the original topic post stipulated: Annoyance towards poor reading comprehension. However, if you are of the opinion that internet message boards are never a place where talk of pet peeves and little annoyances takes place, you are in grave error.
The talk here - yes even the talk on this relatively innocuous topic, is incredibly well thought out and presented when you take into account the fact that we are on the internet: Home of l33t, /b/tards, and thirteen year old clan gamers who type with their fists.
The fact is YOU do not care about the manner in which people choose to communicate and present their intellectual development. And that is fine, but it does not follow that you should post on said topic to berate those that do. Doing so makes you guilty of the same nitpicking behavior that you accuse all else of.
Also when you engage in a friendly debate don't you believe it necessary to at least consider the position of your opponent? It isn't a matter of selling out your own ideals. It is just a behavior that shows basic respect. And when you are in a group of people who all agree that yes, we are selfish and egocentric by nature; It is necessary to observe respect at all times to avoid strong personalities constantly attempting to castrate one another.
Well first off, I never said I was angry, in fact I was being kind enough to deliver a well needed slap to some people with inflated egos. Calling people who are much more successful than you morons is pure stupidity. Kanye West is not a moron because he talks a certain way that you don't like. Its just different culture and upbringing. If anything, judging a persons intelligence by the way they speak is a sign of your own ignorance and antisocialness. Sorry to ruin your honeymoon, but speaking in perfect english will not make u a genious, it does not make u "smart", and you will only fool those who are shallow and stupid anyways, so whats the point?
Who is better off, some guy on a forum with an inflated ego and tendency to overcomplicate things, or a millionaire rap artist? Who has more freedom to indulge in whatever they hell they want to? In terms of being a Satanist, Kanye West is doing better than you are.
"It would be an over‐simplification to say that every successful man and woman on earth
is, without knowing it, a practicing Satanist; but the thirst for earthly success and its ensuing
realization are certainly grounds for Saint Peter turning thumbs down. If the rich man’s entry
into heaven seems as difficult as the camel’s attempt to go through the eye of a needle; if the
love of money is the root of all evil; then we must at least assume the post powerful men on
earth to be the most Satanic. This applies to financiers, industrialists, popes, poets, dictators,
and all assorted opinion‐makers and field marshals of the world’s activities.
Occasionally, through “leakages,” one of the enigmatic men or women of earth will be
found to have “dabbled” in the black arts. These, of course, are brought to light as in the
“mystery men” of history. Names like Rasputin, Zaharoff, Cagliostro, Rosenberg and their
ilk are links—clues, so to speak, of the true legacy of Satan . . . a legacy which transcends
ethnic, racial, and economic differences and temporal ideologies, as well. The Satanist has
always ruled the earth . . . and always will, by whatever name he is called.
One thing stands sure: the standards, philosophy and practices set forth on these pages
are those employed by the most self‐realized and powerful humans on earth. In the secret
thoughts of each man and woman, still motivated by sound and unclouded minds, resides
the potential of the Satanist, as always has been. The sign of the horns shall appear to many,
now, rather than the few; and the magician will stand forth that he may be recognized.
