I haven't had a proper rant for a while, and I have just been hacked off by reading another thread here.

Why do people (usually those who are thinking of joining or have just joined) insist on either SHOUTING IN THEIR POSTS or typing n lwr cse n wht cd be dscrbd as txt spk?

In case these people hadn't realised - a PC is not a mobile phone. It has a full keyboard and no 144-character limit, so you can type words properly and use basic grammar.

If you're asking for advice, then ask properly!

And no - I'm not an old fart, just a pedant!

End of rant.

I agree whole heartedly with you doc, but perhaps you should go and have a sit down now, try and lower your blood pressure a bit :wink:

Dear. Angrydoc.
It has come to my attention that I too have become lazy with the Queens English. I fully intend to correct this.
Yours most sincerly

i wnt to be a submarnr when i leave schul how can id do this coz i like the royal navy also i wnt to b in the SBS is this iz poss coz i wanna be nails. also can anyone tell me whr i got my brain damage from im dyslexic and so is my friend which givz me an excuse apparently 2 contribute the sum of 2 times f*ck all to the 4rums but my mum tells me im cool so thatz ok

Modern education is a wonderful thing. If I'm Thatcher's child and the above 'example' (naming no names) is that of Blair's child, I may have to reform my opinion of the battered old hag.

Ha! I'm sure his joint honours degree in Pet Food Advertising and the History of Laundry from the University of Walsall will serve him well both in and out of the Royull Nayvee.

Seriously though, I haven't worked out whether it's ignorance, lack of consideration, bad education or just laziness.

Probably all 4.

hey you really scared me then Chalky until I realised that I'm too old to be Thatcher's child! Call me Harold Wilson's child if you like and I'll be driving the 2335 night Riviera sleeper for Penzance pulling out of platform 1 at Paddington ...

when you get there this is waiting for you ...

No, no, no, no, no....! You've got it all wrong! It NOT English at all... it's Espresso... the new language of the coffee and text messaging generation.

So Yozza, you've translated text speak to Queen's English have you?

No you haven't. If you left education in 2004 I suggest you fuck off back to school and start again.
