As dumbass n00bs continue to engulf the forum in a storm of fucktardation, suddenly the clouds part and a ray of hope shines through:

After perusing most of the forums, I would offer that someone like myself should be given the ability to edit everyone's posts. The only thing many of you are "grappling" is your own veritable illiteracy. It's a losing battle.

Don't try to act all intellectual, on these forums it will only get you into trouble.
Somehow I doubt you could be speaking from experience.

Hannibal,
I offer you my gratitude. That was an entirely unanticipated pleasure. Who would have thought that there were still people in the world who would look at a word they don't understand and simply assume it doesn't exist.

You use retarded circumlocutions like "put people down" when you could use the very beautiful "belittle". That is unpardonable.

"circumlocutions?" someone hasn't found a practical way to apply their liberal-arts degree.*


*please note: i'm not defending hannibal. i'm just trying to make the point that people who needlessly drop bombs like "veritable," "perusing" and "circumlocution" aren't good writers. they're pretentious people with access to a thesaurus.

I'd also like to nominate bad news hughes for the non-dumbass newbie "gang" (;)), based mostly on his locating the source from which Satchet plagerized, after both Brand and myself came up with nothing on google.

Exposing bulshit with less than 50 posts should qualify him for entrance.

just joking?

thanks, but possibly premature. based on my track record so far, that might be the one constructive thing i'll ever do here.

"bad news hughes" makes a legitimate point. However, I must protest that I neither own a thesaurus, nor wish to. As for the practical purpose to which I apply my "liberal arts degree", let's just say that I have already made a fair bit of money with my education, as if that were ever the point.

What would you have had me say instead of circumlocution? "Talk-around"? I prefer the Anglo-Saxon whenever I have the option as well, but it isn't always there.

My comment about circumlocutions was actually directed at Veridian, who writes like someone whose submissions are rejected by the TV Guide.
