LAZY/broken shift keys RANT! Does this apply to you? Lets clean it up, please?
Posted 17 March 2008 - 10:46 AM
If people have trouble with their shift key, they probably have trouble with their turn signal and checking over their shoulder before changing lanes...it's the same mentality. It's right at their fingertips, but they can't be bothered to use it, because it's not important to them and people that their behavior offends(or in the case of the turn signal, endangers) aren't important to them, either. From their point of view, we grammar nazis are just too uptight and need to chill out...from our point of view, they're lazy twits. While both sides are probably right to a considerable extent, it holds regardless that typing in a manner that is legible and easy to read is more conducive to getting one's point across. Don't expect people to expend the extra effort to understand shorthand or your lack of effort in using the resources at your disposal to correct your grammar and spelling.
RANT: You know what annoys me the most? pEopLe whO tYpe As iF theY'vE Got aN iNtERmiTtenT sHoRt iN tHieR sHiFt kEy. Do you have any idea how much effort it takes to type like that? You're honestly going to expend the effort to put in random capitalization because it 'looks cool' and 'that's the way you roll' when it's discourteous and annoying to others, and would take LESS effort on your part to simply type properly? GET OUT.
I've Also Seen People Type Like This. I Appreciate Your Effort, But You Don't Need To Use Your Shift Key That Much. Again, your overexertion is making it difficult for people to communicate with you.
Lastly, learn how to properly use a !@#$% apostrophe! It's not that difficult!

Thanks Ron, I feel so much better now that I've done my penance.
I've learned my lesson, I'll never post in one of these threads again, those reading the thread are extra sensitive to spelling and grammar errors.
Back in the Dark Ages before the magic of DOS, my form letters would refer to an enclosed "Self Addressed Envelope" enclosed with my monthly statement. The undercover Grammar Police, posing as two of my clients, sent me rude, inconsiderate, and downright nasty letters suggesting that envelopes are inanimate objects and have no ability to "self address" themselves. The proper phrase being "pre-addressed" and "pre-franked" envelopes. They not only questioned my education, but suggested that my IQ number was probably in the high two figures. I was shocked. Yes, I was also hurt. I changed the form letters. I also became very aware of spelling and grammar: something I thought I escaped when I graduated from high school.
I really appreciate the generally high level of communication skills I see on this site.

Im glad I didn't have to deal with people talking like that when I was in High School or even before. Suppose I was one of the lucky ones. In this day and age its pretty pathetic, my personal view: Its slowly turning into a 3rd world Country on a dusty road with no end in sight.
Hope for the best and expect the worst.
