Couldn't attempting to use language designed to be above the level of the average poster also be considered thinking one is better?

Wondering if a person that feels that way considers oneself as superior than others on the forum?   That's the way it sounds.   Just saying......


Nope, not "as superior than others", but thanks for another example to LOL.

 

And as usual, nothing about the topic, just another poorly worded, baiting attack on another poster. Same old; same old.....


I apologize that my composition is so rusty and not up to your standards.  After 40,000 posts, blaming it on being "rusty" is a fake excuse.  But a good attempt to dismiss your comment.  It's never a good attempt.  Instead of focusing of dismmissing someone's post, you should actually consider the content.

 

But where would dismissing others posts as being laughable and a 'hoot' fit in, Fit's in to many of one's posts.  Thanks for asking.....if not as I posted?  Is anyone here to be considered as better than others? Many Christians believe they are.

Nope - but if it makes you feel good to believe that kind of rationalization - knock yourself out.

What about years of persistent bad grammar and usage mistakes? 

What does that imply regarding the quality of the logic and reasoning processes contained in those posts to those who read it?

Might a reader conclude that the logic is as flawed as the usage?


Incorrect grammar that others can readily understand should be preferable than using langauge that is difficult for the average person deciphering.  Additionally to that using words that isn't commonly used in everyday conversation.  Perhaps such is used just to say 'look at me'?

 

Even newspapers are written in language usage readily understood by the average person.  And I would believe that these forums are designed for the same.  So are we here for correct grammar or for political discussions?

That's an interesting but as yet unvalidated assertion.

 

What about years of persistent bad grammar and usage mistakes? 

 

What might a reader infer regarding the validity of the logic and reasoning processes contained therein?

NC--I have to agree with you.  Athough on the surface this just seems like another ignorant trump stunt, one must wonder what short circuited in this guy's head.  This is bizarre even for the king of bizarro world.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!
