Love the new Avatar, Rip.
Mike, WAAAAHH, m'kay?
I'm a better thinker than you. You're a better boater than I. Even?
Even I make grammatical mistakes. I've even received PMs to that effect, which I merited by mis-using you're/your, and their/they're/there (which does seem to be a weakness of mine, TMTTR, but thanks for pointing it out anyway).
But for god's sake, you look both lazy and stupid in the way you continually refuse to proof-read your work.
There is no good writing. There is only good re-writing.
(I forget who said that)
Even I, with my superior intellect and two decades-long career as a writer, proof-read 95 percent of my work either before posting, or immediately upon (so I can edit). You CAN do better. That you don't care to has become the epitome of who you are to me.
Writing is the tool by which human beings organize thought so as to express thought.
Writing is the tool by which human beings have passed down knowledge without posterity having to learn it first-hand.
The rules of grammar exist to clarify and codify meaning.
Poor use of grammar by definition creates confusion.
Your petulance is becoming the sole expression by which I may judge your intellect. I thought there was something more to you than that.
