Language and spelling
« on: August 25, 2003, 05:33:34 AM »
Of late I see more and more people complain about the spelling and grammer mistakes that some of us make.

I would never argue that my english (or american for that matter) is perfect. I am pretty sure that I do make mistakes in either of these languages.

Still I would like to ask for some consideration for those that clearly are not native american or english speaking people.

It may be just me, but sometimes I realy feel like asking you to refrain from further such comments until you write dutch (or french) with as little mistakes as the subject of your complaints write their english.


The answer is 42, but does anybody know the question?

I hadn't noticed any complaints for spelling or grammer, except for anyone useing "chat" or "net" or "733T" speak. Anyone useing netspeak gets a swift kick in the shin.

For people who don't speak english a their first language, do you best, don't be afraid to ask for help, and direct complaints from nit-picking zealots who won't just leave you alone to your friendly admins so we can tell them to leave off. Unless you can beat a non english speaker in a essay contest in their first language, shaddup.

Well, I have a feeling that I may be a culprit in this. If so, please dial 1 now.


That's what I thought. I'm sorry.
