    Problem:

    Frankly, I just can't take it any more, without making some form of protest.

    Many, many people these days are clogging up the forums with inane threads that serve no end at all, except to enlighten the rest of us as to just how much of an a******e that person is. Said person's posts are usually filled with grammar and spelling errors, which really *****es me off, since frankly in my opinion anyone who cannot spell correctly or with the correct grammar, and in their own f***ing native language should be slashed from throat to crotch with a rusty spoon.

    But the one thing, along these lines, that is damn near guaranteed to hack me off, and I would think , a lot of the other members, are those sad-ars*d b*****ds that think they know it all, or ask for/do things completely out of line with the rules that are very easily availlible indeed, and hence can be classified as People Who Cannot Tell Their Arse From Their Elbow, people who are so awash with their own ignorance they are possibly, or most likely probably, drowning in it, as they should be drowning in their own vomit,mucus and sputuum-encrusted-toilet-bowl they call their existence.

    Why, why, why ((Delilah?&#33If you didn't get that you should shot.) can't people be more considerate in their questions and their behaviour?! Why can't they be more like BiD, who despite being from the Netherlands or thereabouts has some of the best written English I have seen, even with the multitude of grammatical rules and exceptions inherent to the language, which I would hardly even expect from someone in the USA or for most of the UK, who regularly have had to ask me how to spell things like "Elbow" "Arse" "Cannot" etc.

    Solution:

    1) Get everyone to do a test of sorts on the forum rules as they register for it, nothing fancy, just multiple choice. This would give me the right to flame them for flouting the rules since they should already know them.

    2) Sterilise rule-breakers so that they cannot breed with other morons to create the next generation of thick-as-sh*t moronic idiots.

    Anyone who disagrees with this will find me coming after them with a rusty spoon.

    --------------

    Now, Mods, if you want to move this to the Trash Can, thats fine. If you want to keep it as a valid thread, thats fine too. This is really just a rant thread, I don't expect people to read it, but if they do, they'd better post a response of some sort.

    Note to nit-pickers: Any errors you may find are most likely the result of your imagination. In the event of a mistake, it is alway reality, not myself, that has got it wrong. I also wish to make known that I am not really a hypocrite of this being a redundant thread since I believe many others have the same opinion.

    Thanks for bringing this up Inquisitor.

    The rules are very much available, and I try to publish them as much as possible. But I'll have a word with one of the Admins to see if they can be added to the sign up page.
    It should be able to be done, as I've seen it done elsewhere.

    As for suggestion number 2, well, thats out of my paws I’m afraid, but I'll see what I can do

    Okay, that was... quite enlightening. I know you hate people who can't spell correctly or who have trouble with grammar and/or interpunction, but not everybody can help that. A decent number of people who post on these boards doesn't have english as their first language, and in the age of 13-18 years old it's quite likely that they make mistakes. As long as they don't overdo it I don't really care about this, I know you do, but maybe you should try to go a little more easy on them.
    Now, I won't be such an ass to point out the one or two minor mistakes I saw in your post , and thanks for complimenting my english .
    I won't lock or move this topic now, I actually find it interesting, but I and the other mods with me will keep an eye on it, because it's quite flammable.

    Well, Inquisitor, I try to overlook a few mistakes in posts. I myself am a horrible typist and struggle with a misspelled word or two (or ten). But for the most part I have to agree with you. Some of the posts I have seen are simply inane drivel. I am not going to repost, but rather link my rant on a similar topic:
    http://www.librarium-online.com/forum/inde...opic=3534&st=15

    Again I echo my sentiments made there, how can anyone expect to be taken seriously if they write posts like those examples...
