Thank you very much for that link.

Clear use of words is a sign of clear thinking.

All that disregard for the rules to enhance clear communication in any language is a disregard for clear thinking.

Fuzzy thinking is very popular.

It is in the power of any individual to clarify his fuzzy thinking.

There are no reasonable excuses.

Then how good it has to be. I know few stammering people, and I still think that they have right to talk(becouse they can't change that), even as it annoys me. I personally draw line to there, where writer understand comment which is answering to and make text, that can be understanded.

Sorry I went to a public school. Learning to be evil was my focus. ha ha

Now I am all paranoid about my grammer.

I get the message. It is good to be alive and corrected, eh.

Greetings,

I wanted to thank you for post. I can not promise You that my grammar or spelling will be flawless, but I will give it my best shot.
I am a newcomer and so far 99% of the time have found gracious welcome among the members of this board, but then I have also not started as of yet to voice my opinion or judgements on anything.
The more I read certain articles (is that correct for postings?), the more I question some of them. I have been reluctant to however disagree or offer up a question for correction.
I am one of those lesser looked at Witches. (If I understood one of the articles correctly, Witchcraft was right up there with Christianity and Wicca - which I don't appreciate at all). However I am forever in the search for more information and learning. I would love to discuss and ask some of questions. Maybe after your wonderful posting, I can find the "courage" to do so.
I do wish to become and be a productive member of this forum and after coming up with the required funds member of the CoS.
So thank you again and I hope that I did not show myself as to ignorant.

It is because of the involvement of people like you that this forum will survive. It is painful to note that many idiots read broken english with a vocabulary of only a few, monosyllabic words better than they read plain english, but your "call to action" certainly won't deprive them of the opportunity to learn their native language or simply better english.

I must say, after dealing with so many mealy-mouthed idiots for the better part of my life, I find this attitude quite refreshing. I am very glad to have "discovered" Satanism and this message board.

I am a bit confused, Ma'am.

Why do you complain of rules and yet you seem so determined to interact with those who follow the rules?

Not to pick on you, I am unable to understand where you are coming from on this idea.

Do those rules not make the posts cleaner and clearer? I like that aspect and I enjoy reading a well-structured post, let alone the intelligence of it.

You seem to dislike "rules.” What are rules in your definition? Everyone abides by rules throughout their life no matter how much of a dissident a person may assume he is.

Rules are part of life and they are set out for reasons. They are not drawn to make life harder or to "poop" on your parade. They are created to make things defined and understandable. If that means it is harder then so be it.

"Life is hard, work harder." That is a motto I like to take to heart.

bcos riting like tis l1ke just makes fins dificult to read like and we like to understand wot ur saying like.

Proper grammar is something that should come naturally, at the least it should be done to be polite. I can't understand why people view writing in english as such a burden.

Maybe you are just in the wrong place. Did you ever think of that??? You seem to be having a hard time here. Perhaps there is a reason for this. Why is it that you feel you shouldn't have to follow the rules?

As I stated in your introduction..

Quote:

Reading through the forums here will give you a good idea of what this board is all about. Doing so will also make it clear whether this board is for you or not. Feel free to make posts and replies. Yes, there are rules, but they are there for good reasons.




Perhaps this message board is not for you, Ghost Girl.

Is it really that hard to write well? I find it much simpler than trying to use slangy "netspeak."

It may not be strictly required by forum rules that you follow correct writing procedure, but you will never be taken seriously if you cannot even muster readable, serious writing. See Dr. LaVey's humorous essay "Writter's Block".

I personally see it as more of a burden to type in non-standard English. Any type of "net speak" of "1337 sp34k" is not only annoying, but frankly more time consuming than establishing a clear and concise message. As a new comer not only to this forum, but forums in general, I find it sad that posts like this have become a necessity. Although, since it is needed, I thank you for pointing out this easily avoidable issue.

That gibberish is like a neon sign saying “I AM A RETARD.”
