Poor spelling and grammar irritate me as much as anybody, but there comes a point where the correction and subsequent bitch fits become far more disruptive than the original mistake. I believe, good sirs, that this is a rock climbing forum and not an etymology forum; perhaps this conversation would best be conducted elsewhere?

Indeed, we don't want to disrupt a topic as important as "the perils of training in a commercial climbing gym."

Are you arguing that the several posts discussing a single grammar mistake and then playing internet tough guy were more productive than the original topic?

Why is it that the phrase "are you arguing/saying that" is always followed by something that wasn't said or intended?

And now you're furthering the very discussion that you called out as a distraction.

Assuming this comment was sarcastic, it very clearly implies that the original topic isn't worth discussing, and therefore is less productive than a spat over grammar.

You've got me there...

I think that's because you identify with sloths.

Jebus! Do I have to spell everything out every time I insult you? That's really going to lose my interest very quickly.

Though I gotta say I wish I could create that kind of intense emotional response in Kirsten Bell just by showing up.

Please: it's not "we're," it's were. WERE. This isn't even a common spelling mistake.



Look at the language camhead used. Does this sound like a friendly gesture geared towards being helpful to someone you've never met or had any contact with before? Could he have simply pmed me or did he get some sort of ego boost from this?

We can disagree, just making my point.

One of my businesses, I do financial planning for people. Some of them very smart and successful. It astounds me how absolutely juvenile most people are with their money. Regardless of income or education. I don't attack them, I make suggestions and attempt to help them see the big picture. One of them made 5 mil/year for 7 years and now has 100k to his name.

And if you ever make those suggestions in writing, and keep spelling the word "were" with an apostrophe, and make the other frequent grammatical errors you do, then an educated client might question whether you had the basic intelligence necessary to be a competent financial planner. How well you express yourself in writing creates an impression about your intelligence, your educational background, and your attention to detail—qualities that a client of a financial planner might consider important.

Personally, I care about the way I write. When someone corrects an error I make in my writing, especially if it is an error I make systematically, I'm generally grateful for it. Even if the intention underlying the correction is isn't helpfulness, the correction is still helpful.

Jay

Jay, your giving me advice on my successful business of 10 yrs? That's already made me a significant amount of money? Well, gee thanks. If I need something written perfectly, I use a program for it or pay someone to do it. People pay me because I make them money, end of story. BTW, most "educated" folks are HORRIBLE with their money.

I truly don't care if it's perfect, which is the reason it's not. If I did, it would be.

If you do, fantastic, "the correction is isn't helpfulness". I'm no expert but you may want to take a serious look at that, it doesn't look right. Let's all learn together and let us know what you come up with. PLEASE start a thread about it we ALL really want to improve these skills on ROCKCLIMBING.COM!

That's a typo. I know it's wrong. In contrast, you're having trouble spelling 2nd grade vocabulary words.

Don't you get it, it's simple Jay, you care, I don't. Throughout you life, you've come to believe it's important.

That's not me. It's ok, we're different. I place value on different things.

All I ask is that others don't enforce their values on me.

I have made all my dreams come true without the desire for this skill. I excel at anything I care about and anything else doesn't matter to me. I'm happy just the way I am.

Was it that far off the beaten track?.

I find it hard to balieve a person like jay handles himself in real life as he does on these forums. I assume many places are just as mine where such a person would have sufered many physical attacks for what is nothing short of a smart arse, bitter and offensive personality.

To use the word ''bully'' as a descriptiave of jay seems very childish but that is exactly what he is, a childish interent bully. The fact that he is actualy well educated makes it even more pitifull.

ITs as though he needs constant recognition, when that fails he turns to wreckless insults.. like a little baby throwing it's dummy out the pram.
