how come they can neither spell accurately nor use the rules of English Grammar?

And India Knight, it kicked off when she was on here.

'cause there's nothing people like more than trying to start a fight.

Cos they're borderline illiterate - hence they can't read the threads properly to make an informed comment.

There was the same thing over on NM on the Nestle thread, people were joining just to campaign and post on the nestle related threads.

Because of their level of outrage and shock and indignancy and horror at the level of selfishness and awfulness and wrongness of MN.
Hammering at their keyboards, probably typing with an axe and a nailgun, drooling with fury, it really messes with general standards of literacy.

There is a frighteningly large number of illiterate, ill informed people in this country. I suspect that MN doesn't really reflect RL from that point of view since the majority of posters are intelligent, eloquent and funny. Depressingly, the rest of the world ain't.

Twinklemegan Wed 04-Jul-07 15:55:57

You are so right (sadly).

~sniff~ 'probably typing with an axe' Nowt wrong with axes. I keep an axe beside my computer and my posts are wonderfully literate if not always very well typed. I'll concede the point on nailguns tho.

You two are giving me a headache.
