    How come some people on here act so cool? If someone comes up with a good counterpoint to you, you just insult their spelling.

    well, you gotta get points any way you can. It's like playing bass improv style. Come up with something on the fly, y'know.

    You know, it's hard to give a good answer when you're committing the same mistakes that those people whine about (i.e. punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc.) I don't think that people here resort to lame come-backs when they can't come up with something better. It's when people don't use proper english to express themselves. Reading a post that doesn't make logical sense or should be broken into more than one sentence is kind of annoying. :rolleyes: Could just be that they're typing fast though. :meh:

    Do you have an example of what you're talking about? :confused:

    most of my problem is typing fast. Grammar is ususally not a problem for me, but I know bad typing skills is.

    I type fast... then I read what I wrote.

    Simple.
     
  6. Hey, we aren't "acting" cool..... We ARE cool.

    I type slow - and most of the time, I can't see what I'm typing 'cause I haven't got my glasses on. Yeah... I just bang on the keys and hope I hit the "Submit" button when I click the mouse.

    (Looks like it's going to be a busy night for JT)

    We only criticize if they don't resolve the tritone.

    Get it? Counterpoint?

    Feh.

    Advice from an old geezer.
    Cool is for selling soda pop, blue jeans and Britney Spears CD's. Learn to ignore and you'll be much better off. :cool:

    I insult others to make me feel better about myself. Try it, it works.
