Saying "Hmm" and ending with a period rather than an ellipsis is perfectly alright. Adding the ellipsis only serves to make the sound longer.

"Hmm..." is a thoughtful noise while "Hmm." is a noise of disagreeance.

"Recongnized" is the American spelling, and, although "commie" is spelt with two M's, Enlglish is not AZN Pride's first language, so he is given some leniance.


Also, YOU spelt ellipsis wrong. And you left out the word "Nazi"

In other words:


Agreed, fail, and Pwned.

Shasta, did ya see how Zank was able to totally pwn you, while all the time keeping his cool, never being dickish.

Thats constructive grammar criticism. You could take a lesson or two.

Scratch what I said earlier, I was under the impression that PG was ragging on me as well as Shasta.

So...yeah.

Hey I'm on your side man. Sometimes, when properly expressed, I enjoy a good grammar lesson. Its stuff I should know.

But this guys post gives grammar nazi's a bad name. Don't you guys have a union?

As for me being "back", this is tentative. The magical wireless coffee can satelite has honed in on a weak phantom signal. The cat could nudge the can and it would be lost forever.

Then keep that cat away from the computer.

Or, perhaps you could try going to a cyber café once in a while.

OR, maybe you could try, you know, PAYING for your internet? :wink:

Zankou pwning instead of being pwned? Zankou held up as a shining example and lauded as a teacher?

WTF is going on in the world? I think I need to sit down and have a beer.

P.S. Leaving out the apostrophe in the sentence "That's constructive grammar criticism" is priceless.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I PWN people constantly. And, in fact, I don't get PWNed mself that often. The stupid things ken worley tries to PWN me with aren't worthy of PWNage status.

Some of them are good, but, come on; Ken sucks.
