I am. You're nothing but a cunt anymore, man. Maybe you don't realize it? You use to be kinda fun to banter with. Now you're basically just here to put people down. I don't see much constructive come from your post block anymore. Not unless you're able to take a jab or underhandedly put someone down in the process. As annoying as Screwy is, I'm surprised someone hasn't called you out on the magnifying glass you keep over him too.

This isn't a butt hurt moment. This is me calling you out and letting you know I'm pretty well finished giving you my respect. Not sure what has happened to you this year, but it's lame.

Sounds like butt hurt to me. Maybe you're a little wound up and need to take a nice long hike...hmmm, where would that be?

Hey Francis;
He's not the problem.

YOU'RE the problem.

Why? Because no one is in charge of your emotions but Y.O.U.


Want to get butthurt over what someone posted? Get butthurt!

However; you must also take responsibility for your actions. You chose to get butthurt.


Like my 12th grade history teacher said (Who was also the DB coach on our varsity football team):

"Attitude is everything. No one can make you feel ANYTHING without your permission first."


Take responsibility for your own emotions.

Admittedly I slip up here and there when trying to bang a thought out, but the one that really gets my goat is "to", "too" and "two" people.

"I'm going to."


Going to what?

Yeah I guess. English is such a fucked up language because of all the exceptions to the rules. It makes more sense to me to use them the way I was taught, it's easier to keep track of what is going on in a conversation. How do you use them?

depends if i feel like hitting the 'shift" key or not.

outside of forums? I don't use air quotes around single or small group words. italics, capitalization, or parenthesis will get used instead.

Poor grammar in writing annoys me greatly. It does not bother me nearly as much in casual conversation, however, I have to bite my tongue any time someone misuses "fewer" and "less" in conversation.

I still see grocery stores with express lines with big signs: 15 items or less. You can count items--fucking morons.

"Or less" sounds better.

No, he messed up the capitalization. It should be "who's Information?"

Cool, thanks.

I have no problem being corrected. Roc Doc doesn't want to correct me. He wants to rub my face in it.

edit: James, while John had had "had", had had "had had"; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher


because it is funny and grammer is stupid

I agree, and I'm one of them. It annoys the hell out of me when people can't spell or use grammar correctly. It just seems like such an easy thing that I can't understand how so many people can fuck it up.

But then I compare it to people who have difficulty with moderately simple math. No matter how hard they try they just can't grasp it. And although it's apparent that a lot of people misspell or use grammar incorrectly out of laziness, over time I've realized that maybe it's just a very difficult thing for some people to understand. Hell, some of the most intelligent people I know can't spell.

So I've mellowed out about it
