    I'd like to think that was done deliberately, but I wouldn't actually put money on it.

    Your to kind, Linda90210.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    I find that hard to believe. In fact, I'll go ahead and say that there is no way that you post the same way that you talk.

    And I'm not making a snide comment about typing with your hands versus speaking with your mouth.

    The way I "sound" online is the way I sound in person. Why would that be hard to believe?

    Also, you probably don't use grammar properly when you speak.

    Reading and writing are wholly different mental exercises than speaking.

    I pace my speech well, since I speak in public pretty frequently. If you think I do not use proper grammar in everyday speech, you did NOT know my parents. :eek:

    When you speak, your mind automatically anticipates the next sound that it has to make, and forms your mouth accordingly. Unless you stop after each word, you are not speaking like you write.

    Also, I find it hard to believe that you can speak with semicolons and apostrophes.

    My father has no use for computers, and would have less than no use for them if he knew boards like this existed. :p

    They're, their, there, Honey. Don't worry your pretty little head over it. It's just a message board. :)
