    Good morning, BHW. My name (or alias in the Internet, at least) is ShadowRizer, shadowrizer, or Shadowrizer, depending on the website or username capitalization privileges.

    I did not intend to be arrogant in the title, though it may have come across that way now that I re-read it. Generally, in online forums, I find many people who refrain from using any grammar or even the slightest notion of correct spelling to express their ideas, thus leading to a confusing post riddled with senseless acronyms that are combined together to make a so-called "sentence," though I would personally declare it as more of a "random jumble of thoughts." For an example, consult this "sentence," "OMG MI WATAH JUST BUHRST BABY CUM NAO!!!!!!!!!!!" Now, which is easier to read, that or this: "Oh my gosh! My water just burst! I've started labor and the baby will be coming any moment now!" I think we can all agree on the second one.

    I am a Computer Science and Business Administration double major at a school I will not name, a freshman in college this year. If you have any questions regarding Computer Science, Business, or other topics that are at least semi-related to Computer Science and Business, feel free to ask (in a PM). I am honored to be at BHW, and I hope to enjoy my time here.

    Thank you,
    ShadowRizer

    if you keep up with this tone, you wouldn't go far in this forum.

    Nothing wrong with his attitude, it is very annoying to read drivel like he mentioned. But of course no one forces you to read that.

    I want to mention that this forum has a lot of foreigners who are not very good at english so if that's such a huge deal for you maybe you won't like it here.

    Ahh, well that makes it more understandable. I believe I must not have expressed my point efficiently. I understand when people don't speak English very well, and that is perfectly fine with me. Actually, I love to learn new languages, so I have no prejudice against them. The matter comes into hand when somebody who knows perfectly good English (i.e. a college student in the USA or even a teenager that is taking high school English courses) talks in such a fashion. Many people who are fluent in English talk like this, and that is what gets on my nerve. If there are a lot of foreigners in this forum, that's perfectly fine. I will actually love it here, I may even try to help some with their English. I haven't examined the forum thoroughly yet, so I hadn't seen that particular fact, but my statement was more in the "general forum and slang talk" apparel.

    Thank you for your comments,
    ShadowRizer

    r u kidding me? you confuse me by trying to impress me with big words? the fact is im to busy to worry about tiping right all the time. If you don't know what i eman by what I write to bad. I not going to backspace delete every other second just to communicate quick ideas.

    Also what aobut doctors? are not there handwriting illegible? so what is diffence between me typig ideas fast and not worrying aobut getting an F on my post.

    Now please allow me sir to say:

    Had I intended on offering some type of excellent product that would be provided with the most professional and efficient service available and was expecting people to pay for such service, you can be sure, that I would make the most conscientious effort possible to display the character of my business through my writing.

    I know that if I was looking to be hired by you I would have to put my best in everything I do or else you certainly would never hire me.

    Ok whatever thats what you want tme to type like eveyr time I poste?

    Common man.

    In my opinion your overzealous nature toward this subject leads me to believe that you are actually insecure and just trying to prove how smart you are to everyone.

    You think I care what anybody thinks about my grammar on a forum. Anyone worried aobut grammar on a forum or in IM for that matter has not entered the present century.

    We no longer write formal letters that are sealed with wax and sent on horseback..

    We communicate at the speed of light my friend. And guess what, I got to much to do and wasted to much time here already. Peace.
