i apologise there should indeed be a full stop after England, the use of and after a full stop could be seen as a little out there. yet i stand by it. my grasp of my mother tong although not impeccable should really be the the least of your worries.
but far more important matters like the discussion on dawkins. or perhaps something else? was that collection of sentences ok for you?

oh and for the record your understanding of my 'paragraph' was a little of.


No offence mate, but you're fighting a loosing battle when you spell off as of...

I know when you're angry you typ faster and are prone to making mistakes, and most of the time, that isn't a problem

but when arguing about English? It kinda is

so capital letters, full stops, proper grammer and proper spelling would be a good idea if you want to argue about it, proves you actually know what you're talking about...

this is a argument i care little fore. and as my computer doesn't automatically add capitals after full stops who cares. as fore my spelling i apologise i am half the age of the vast majority of you. so i forgot a f. great. i am aware that you are not getting at me but seeing as i have a learning disability (the fact i will now get pigeonholed bothers me little) can hardly be held against me. although my communication skills and ability to learn are not in the least effected (i am aware of the irony of the last sentence) my ability to communicate these thoughts onto paper are somewhat.

The point is, you were arguing about it when you state that you fully know you can't spell or "do grammer" properly, so... why?

When reading a book, the grammer and spelling all add to how you read and interpret the words, and when you're used to that, and write like that, and see no problem with pushing shift for the milli sencond you use to type the first letter of a sentence, then you get a bit irritated by the people who don't do that...

OK so you've got dyslexia... instead of getting uppety at people, and then basically asking for people to have a go, why didn't you explain that in the first place? You, in my mind, deliberately got people's backs up, then came in with the "I'm dyslexic" thing as if to make all the people who just had a go to then say "oh I'm sorry mate, my fault entirely" and give you a load of sympathy...

If you're good at communication, and are obviously amoungst people who like correct spelling and grammer, then surely it would have been the best thing to do to explain first..

Maybe lesson learned?

Dude, when no one understands what the hell it is you're trying to say, you don't HAVE an argument.

I stay out of this sort of...talk, Zankou is the Serious Liaison.

A few pointers: First letter of the sentence is uppercase, and you put a period at the end. For, as in for this or that has no e at the end. Fore, as in I'm hitting a golf ball and want to warn people, that has an e at the end.

And now that you've learned the basic rules of typing, you may be able to learn basic grammatical rules. Or to defend your point about how Americans are less intelligent, than, say, those from Swaziland.

What teachers, by chance, are unable to point out Africa on a map? Can you provide names and whatnot? Because I should like to call them and set them straight about that.
