What is happening?

What is happening to some people in forums or newsgroups?

When they don't accept the truth or have answers to your questions they abuse you especially with name calling.

So if you don't know answers just say so, as others would feel a lot less of you with name calling then if you didn't have answers or don't even bring up the subject of you know someone knows nothing about a issue.

Or they go off at you for saying the wrong thins or say you have problems with your English when they can clearly see and choose to ignore that others including them have faults and/or and say the wrong thing.

Thats the average person. It has nothing to do with forums, people in general are just illogical, don't truely read what they see, and are thus quite stupid.

Care to translate that for us into something intelligible??



Tip: If you're going to flame people - even (or maybe especially?) large groups in general terms - you should make sure your own house is in order....

'Your English' is correct. It sure bears little resemblance to the English everyone else uses.
