tw. not being snarky here, really: Is English your First Language?


go back and read my posts. quote where I typed the word all before your reference to it in post # 21


when you say 'some guys' it means some abstract amount of guys. When you clarify it by saying 'some guys i know' THEN it means a specific number of guys that YOU know.


quit deflecting from the issue at hand. ya big baby

I am also not being snarky. I am amazed how often you do not read what is written - by me and others. Your question is disingenuous. I was speaking English before you were born.

You probably also have trouble with English that lawyers use. And do not read technical journals that also remove and do not wast bandwidth with irrelevant (flowery) pronouns.

You clearly replaced the word 'some' with 'all'. That says nothing to disparage anyone. That is an obvious, quoted, and simple fact.

Now, if the English is problematic, an honest person quotes the offending sentence. And then posts a better versions. That is how people who do not want to argue therefore advance mankind.

Show me. Show me the offending sentence and how you would have written it. Then you are contributing; not trying to attack and argue.

I never liked the smuck from the get go. The cutesy baby talk in his stage shows was sickening. You want children to speak correctly then talk that way. When the charges were brought I disowned him completely. What an evil son of a bitch. I hope bubba butt fucks him until he dies in prison. It boils my blood that Bounce still runs his show.

To not admit the obvious (you did not read what is written), instead you insult. Are you Brett Kavanaugh having just come from testifying before Congress? Will you also yell and cry here?

Well you are obviously just being emotional, or you would admit it's pong ping.
