Hi everybody how's it going. I just want to make sure everybody knows that on the forum we need to use a little bit of etiquette. This isn't AIM, so please make a fervent attempt to make posts that we can comprehend clearly. Capitals and the likes are needed in every post with the exception for threads that are sticky and begin with either "A Completely" or "Random". Perhaps we will create a forum for completely off the wall crap, but we are not there yet.

Oh, look at that! It's Mr. Period from Penny Arcade, and he has some tips on forum etiquette!

We will not simply bow down to your spelling oppression!


Not even Mark Twain agreed with proper spelling...

Quote from: Mark Twain
For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.

Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.

I think that comic is hilarious. I'd truly be humored if someone did that here. Too bad that same person would subsequently be temp banned for a while, reason: "Don't act like this is Gamefaqs."

PS: Evan you are an ass.

Nope, 'fuck' is a word.  I can understand 'fuck' when I see it.  Sentence structure and overall post coherence are really what prompted me to bump the thread.

I'll remember that the next time I'm in Taiwan...

Where's the fun in that?
