But that's just it. In the long run it's not small stuff.


Being able to use proper grammar, even when typing or writing things down, opens a lot of doors.

Thats's right and not being able to keeps a lot of doors from ever opening.

Again, no one is bitching about anything. He just posted a simple question on why some people want to be careless with their grammar now days. And it doesn't seem like attention seeking to me.

Well, what I said wasn't an opinion. That was statement about the thread. It's not at all attention seeking or bitching. As I said, it was a simple question that this guy asked.

Now here is an opinion: You act as if he was trying to start a fight; he is not. And no one was trying to state they are better because they can spell.

hummmm. grammar. I can't spell kat but I can calculate 32 bit machine code in my head ( that is 32 bit hexidecimal encrypted booleen algorithms ) so why grade people on what you think is your strongest asset. cause part of asset is ass and no one wants to look like that. we are all the best "us" we can be. remember the glass house thing. * steps down from the soap box*

Yea someone already pointed that out, and I made a comment about it already. You're a little slow on the uptake.

People that can't seem to spell, just event their own words. I guess "Hellu" is one of them, lol.

Please note that if someone is accustomed to saying "Hello" in a wierd way (like "helloooooo", "heeeeeeeello", "'ello" -or even "myello"), it is an accepted literary practice to spell it as it sounds.

Ice, your's is a valid point, but I think you may be missing a finer point. At the heart of this exercise in circular reasoning, is that the VEHICLE that was used to transport the "32 bit hexidecimal encrypted booleen algorithms" from the pages and minds of highly talented mathematicians and translate the hard data into a "usable" idiom was, and probably always will be, some form of language.

As a civilization, we made our biggest fundamental leaps when we began to develop standard means of communication, first among the clans and tribes, later among the nations, and still later, internationally. These were not necessarily the most brilliant (as in "intellectually advanced") of our accomplishments, but they had the most wide-spread effect. They helped to set the foundation where boolean algorithms was not JUST an intellectual property belonging only to a few deep-thinkers who, in spite of their advanced reasoning, would never be able to fully utilize the hidden applications. But the brightest could communicate the potentials and de-mystify the process to the layman. It could then be taught, explained, and most significantly, applied, as we advance in our overall development.

Brilliance in the hands of one is a funny joke that can't be told. Brilliance must be tapped, unleashed, and made normal. The measuring stick of brilliance must constantly elevate. If it becomes stagnant, we aren't working hard enough. If it slides, we decline among the civilized. We apply tremendous levels of pressure and importance to our stature in the world's picture. That stature has been attained and sustained largely upon the creations of the brilliant and gited, and the applications of the tireless and true. Somewhere in the middle is the teachers, testers, and technicians who actually put theory and idea to test. That is really where the rubber meets the road. And they communicate it to the rest of us. In the form...of language, more than not!

In other words, we are decimating the vehicle that deploys, translates, and transports our collective brilliance. See, we should never reach the point where we offend "our collective brilliance" by offering it rides in an oil-burning, Glad-bag windowed...Hoop-ty...:-)

As a math and science guy, myself, I follow your sentiment. At least on the "nuts-and-bolts" level. But the strong philosophical arguments sway me to their side in the end. Many, if not most philosophers, argue that LANGUAGE is, indeed, our MOST important development and contribution to civilization...PERIOD!



Hard4, bruh(((<---yeah, I know)))...you could not have planned that faux pas any WORSE!!! :-)
(...not at you...with you, dude!) :-) And, btw, great subject matter! It will become "tired" and over-used ONLY when we re-learn our basics.

Yea, I have a secretary for that... no, in all seriousness I spend a lot of time making sure my idea's are well read and comprehinded as they apply to the project at hand. What I am saying is, when I am not under the microscope at work, you know, trying to meet someone that gets ME and maby we can have a lifelong friendship that will make us both smile and if I start off by typing every word corectly and makin sure all my sentences are properly formatted and my frazing is correct then where is the fun in that if a woman or women dont wana date me over my typing skills and wana start a pathetic thread to make themselves look better ( and by the way, he failed miserably ,u know) then they were probably not the girl for me cause I think we all have eria's where we shine and in the end we are all the best we can b.... now that was an example of a a porely structured runn on sentence with the wrong puncuation and many mis spelled words, EVERYTHING WRONG and yet everyone understand's what I have said... I am a Graduate of M.I.T. AND LEARNED EARLY NOT TO JUDGE PEOPLE ONWHAT U ARE THE BEST AT !!! PS. I probably make more in a weak than gramer boy makes in 2 mo... Does that make me better than him?!?! NO,we are all the best US.

No, no no. We are not all the best. I'm never going to pretend that murderers, pedophiles, rapists, etc. are on the same level as me.
