"Oh, look," the masses sighed dejectedly, "The kona geezer is going on a rant."
I'm enjoying Bike Forum, but I'm having trouble deciphering a lot of what I read here. I can usually muscle through the odd dangling modifier and cope with lazy spelling. I have learned to relax about the general inability to differentiate "there," "their," and "they're," and I will not revisit "its" and "it's."
But we're crossing over into the disturbing realm of "hooked on phonics" bucketheads whose posts look as though they are typed with the forehead while the posters are all baked on reefer.
I mean, I'm not trying to offend, but this is going to drive me CRAZY! Why don't people even know how words are supposed to look? Doesn't anybody read anymore? If this is the way of the future, could we try to standardize our clumsy, uneducated phonetic spelling? Can we AT LEAST give our offerings the old once-over to see if they make any sense? (pant, pant, pant)
Don't even get me started on syntax.
Thank you for your time.
