    AAAaaaaargh, sorry for the rant but I'm getting sick of being sucked into posts because people refuse to use question marks. Posts like (these aren't real posts)...

    Best way to make bank - guaranteed

    And then inside, a question like hey guys, is there a guaranteed way to make money.

    or

    Hacked version of XRumer
    Hey guys does anyone have a hacked version of XRumer

    PLEASE guys, if you are asking a question then make it a bit more obvious.

    OK, rant over.

    Why does nearly everyone (including most mods and admins) fail to use proper "grammer", "speling" and "punchuotian"?

    NOTE: yes, these are accurate "spelings", and totally not "ment" to be satire.

    EDIT: I fail.

    Erm kinda off topic dude and what do you mean fail to use proper "grammer", "speling" and "punchuotian" none of these words are spelt correctly which would be more ironic than satirical.

    My point is not that people should be using "perfect grammar" who does? It is simply that if you are asking a question in a thread then give people a clue by adding a question mark to the end of the thread title.

    How hard is that?

    My primary language is Dutch, but as you can see I have no problem with English nor English grammar.

    to avoid reading such topics i hover the mouse on the thread title and read the excerpt of the topic first, then proceed with reading the full story if i think it might be interesting to read.

    you can see an example in this movie http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?leyawo23yiz

    The same goes for me.

    And at the person responding to my comment (irony instead of satire): you best be trolling, because what you said there was sad beyond my comprehension otherwise. In fact, it was sadder than the actual quotes I presented.

    EDIT: the true irony can be found in your signature. "Sense is NOT common." So it appears.

    NOTE: not trying to insult you, but read more careful next time.

    Until now all occurrences of me doing that were accidental, after someone told me I forgot a question mark I immediatley fixed it

    If we used japanese as our primary language we would not have this issue. They have a marker which denotes the sentance as a question. Pretty handy really!
