    Other then driving traffic to an article you wrote, was there any point to this post at all?

    eidt: I would reccomend others not click the link unless Simus can give a viable reason for the post.

    I have pointed out a hotbed of corruption and encouraged American people to root it out. Apparently Paleoichneum wants the swindlers to have their way.

    I pointed out a hotbed of corruption in the article. In America it is considered an authors duty to shout about his articles on every corner. Why do you want to discriminate against me and my article?

    Its rude and against forum policy to link spam for the purpose of driving traffic to other sites.

    Don't you think that it was rude to call my link "spam?" What forum polices forbid links to external websites? There are many neighbouring threads with links to external sites. Why don't they attract your wreath?

    Perhaps, such talented person, like yourself, could have guessed that I just hit "n" instead of "space" bar?


    You are so picky about my misprints, but what about abstract art?



    Is it perfect?

    art is in the eye of the beholder, so the question is pointless

    I still haven't the slightest idea what word you are trying to say.

    A temptation.

    Replace space bar with n.

    Antemptation.

    Of course, he has complicated the issue by using both definite and indefinite articles.

    Nevertheless Meteor, even without the explanation the intended words seemed obvious to me. The guys talking crap, but on this one you are coming across as obtuse to the point of trolling. Not your expected standard at all!

    Sorry, I honestly really didn't get it, it wasn't clear at all to me. Everone decodes misssspelled words differently. Even with the space instead of the n, the sentence is so grammitically incorrect I would still have had trouble understanding it (and still do).

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a terrible typist, so often have boo boos; but I do correct them within seconds as soon as I read what I posted (most of the time). If not, I correct them later as soon as I see them (noting the reason for the edit). And if someone doesn't understand what I said, I will make the correction and explain/admit my error, not get offended by someone pointing it out.

    I decide to read the whole article. I think that I got there in the end.

    What passes for music these days is worse than any "visual art", human or otherwise, but they still give awards for it.
