Default Please for the love of god...

Can some of you people take the time to REREAD what you typed before hitting the submit thread/post button?

Do you realize how dumb it makes you look?

Please stop abbreviating every other word...

I get enough texts during the day, i don't want to feel like I am reading them here too...

THIS IS A FORUM, NOT A CELL PHONE....


Thank you!

Carry on...

Love,
Bunny

Well Bunny, stay away from AT. I almost never post there anymore, but I do scan through now and then. I just saw a thread with this title:

I dnt no wat to do


I had to open it and it went downhill from there. Imagine what it does to an English major to read such drivel.

I'm with ya on this one Bunny. If a person can type upwards of 60 words per minute then there's no reason to use "text lingo". Save it for the cell phone. When I read a thread or posts I like to read real words so as to comprehend just what is being asked or said. Call me old school, but anybody that knows the English language knows there are only two more letters to the word "you" vs "u".

Take a look at the reference tedlebo posted. "I dnt no wat to do". How lazy can a person get. Five more keys and the words would have been complete. How much time would that have taken?

I deal with a quite a few people these days and find that people from non-English speaking countries do a better job with their English. I think the main reason is that they take some pride in knowing another language. I wish some of our youth would take a little more pride in knowing their own and use it properly.

While we are at it, can we all agree that when we talk about turkey, duck , or goose decoys that we actually use the word decoy instead of dekes??

I have to wonder how they manage in the real world. On my last job, I watched a vendor who was a shoe-in for a job in our facility LOSE an almost quarter million dollar contract simply because of spelling errors in the final proposal. It was their contract to lose, my engineer and I were both pulling for them, but the higher ups tried reading the proposal and never finished it. They simply moved on to the next one.

Well, JTClark is little rough around the edges, too. Took me quite a while to figure what language or dialect he was using. He might be a foreigner living in the USA so I've learned to keep my mouth shut. I'm not perfect either.

That's like I have this gentleman on the Martin Tech Forum that is from Germany. He used to post and sometimes apologize about his use of some words or phrases. I did correct him a few times by PM, but told him he was doing just fine. It did take some time, but I finally got through to him that his use of the English language is better than many Americans. He explained that he sometimes has to look things up in a dictionary to get the right meaning. To that I applauded him and told him he should come to America and become an English teacher so as to teach our children the correct useage of their own language.

I'm not saying there isn't a place for shorthand or text messaging, but for goodness sake, take a little pride in your educational level.

I usually proof read mine and still miss something once in a while. And it's not out of pride. I don't have pride anymore. It's just the way I was educated and brought up. They taught us how to write and proper grammar when I went to school and it just never left my brain.

When I went to school it was back in the days when these old school marms would crack your knuckles with a ruler if you were holding a pen or pencil wrong. Today kids expect a passing grade for just showing up.

Did anybody catch my mistake above? Goats have kids. People have children.

You are one of the most well spoken (typed) posters on this site, the thread was not directed at you in any way...

there are some others though that maybe need to go back to school for a refresher course...
