Maybe I overreacted but correcting someones grammar and not even addressing the content of the post seems so petty and cheap its very frustrating.
Actually what pissed me off is I made a attempt at a creative, somewhat interesting post and you basically just come and distract from it without contributing anything.
Sorry. I honestly didn't mean to be a dick with my first post, and you're right that I probably shouldn't have bothered, but I'm a bit surly today. I don't think I have it in me to leave this alone.
address the content of your post. Call me anal if you want, but the fact of the matter is that we are all communicating in here via written English, and I don't think it's outrageous to expect people to follow the conventions of that language if they wish to be understood by others.
You should be aware that the creative, somewhat interesting ideas in your messages are going to be completely lost on anyone but yourself if the sentences you write down don't actually make any sense.You
know what you're trying to say, but all we
have to go on is what you actually write.
A Wookie and bounty hunter splice chimera would of been nasty.
How am I
supposed to know what the sentence above means when it is completely and utterly meaningless? I obviously can't read your mind, so my only recourse is in reading your words as they appear on my screen.
After a few seconds of trying to extract some sense from what you had written, I quickly gave up and was left with the realization that you don't appear to know that should've
are actually contractions of the words should have
or would have
I suspect that your confusion stems from the fact that these contractions are frequently pronounced by people in a way that is phoenetically similar to "should of" or "would of", but those
words do not ever belong together in any form of English that I am aware of.
Furthermore, the people who are saying those things aren't
actually saying "should of" or "would of", no matter how much you might hear it as such. Transcribing it that way only takes a combination of two words with meaning
, and turns them into a completely different
and ultimately meaningless
combination of words..
Well why would you do
If you want to be understood and engaged in discussion, then I suggest that you take the time to communicate more effectively. You have every opportunity to get it right before you click "post", and we have no ability to understand anything except
for the actual contents of your message.
If you genuinely can't be bothered, then I suggest you grow a thicker skin and attempt to refrain from flaming those who are trying to offer some completely valid comments on what it is that you have decided to share with us.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.
