    I believe you're a joker cluelesshusband. If this is the case, why don't you be yourself for a bit and lay off the yokel act? I truly hope this is a prank..if not, you seriously need to work on your grammar (among other things). I can handle the "other things" (too numerous to list)...what I can't stand are constant grammatical errors. It gives me a headache. In your last post, I counted over 30 errors.

    I think it was a good example. If you don't learn to at least spell I will not reply to you again...

    Why not? I mean, if you understand the posted communication, where's the problem?

    I've grown to have a good respect for a few members on this forum, and you - Arcane_Mathematician, are one of the first of these, yet are we really about correcting language/spelling/grammar/nuance/etc., or about communication and learning from each other in ways that would not have been possible without the the efforts of development that went into computers, the internet and sites such as this.

    I, like others, have had my doubts about husband from day one, for his method of writing seems uneducated and therefore totally out of sync with his undoubted intelligence and clarity of reasoning; but then I chose to look past the imperfections (even if they were deliberate) and focus upon anything else on offer, and now have to say - there is a great deal more on offer - as is the case also with yourself.

    On the other hand, other members write well enough, yet their posts offer far less reasoning worth listening to/communicating with.

    So I guess you can choose an alternative focus, but for mine - as long as I understand it, I am delighted to 'listen' to intelligent reasoning from wherever it may emanate, even if it comes to me in an entirely uneducated cloaking.

    The persistent use of imperfections in every post, thread and forum (this is not his only target) is rude and ignorant. You are either a native English speaker, or someone who has developed excellent fluency in the language. For those struggling to work in a foreign language his posts are pure gibberish. He does himself and this forum no favours by being a self indulgent prat.

    If the style is a consequence of dyslexia, or some similar condition then politeness alone would require him to use a spellchecker on each post. His failure to do so affirms the notion that, whether or not he is a clueless husband, he is certainly a rude bastard.

    No offense to cluelesshusband but I have to agree with this.

    The ease with which one can get the tools to correct spelling mistakes now is such that the reasons given by Clueless are not viable anymore. all he would need to do is use firefox, which has a built in spell-check function.

    His excuses is also pisspoor due to the fact that while he understands what we write perfectly well, he chooses to write in a fashion that makes it difficult to understand at times, and blatantly confusing to what words he actually wants to use at other times. Learning to spell is an essential tool to written communication, and he outright refuses to learn.

    Cluelusshusband,

    I've just had a quick look through a few of your posts, and it would be apparent that even if you don't feel a spellchecker is too helpful in your case for whatever reason, it would indeed go some way to cleaning up your errors, and whichever way you look at it, they are errors.

    For instance, your 'esample' would show up as an error, with a few options, but only one of these looks close to how you verbalise it - example, and with your ''ther', again there is only one option - there.

    So come on now! You are clearly no dullard, so put some of the obvious intelligence you enjoy into helping to support those among us who are already struggling with the language - as Ophiolite has mentioned - being an aspect I had not previously considered.

    Clueless husband, here is a post of yours cleaned up in almost exactly one minute using a spellchecker.
    Well... i see my ignoring such comments an going to help get this thread back on track... so long story made short... my posting style is me an Iíve pretty much been me all my life (almost 60)... lol... but i quit school in 9th grade an typing wasnít offered until 10th grade so i taught myself how to type (wit 3 fingers an my thumbs) when i started posting in webtv (fire-walled) groups about 12 year ago an luckily for me spelling an grammar wasnít big issues... i never was a good speller... an usin spell check is a problem cause i then have to use a dictionary to decide which word the spell checker offers is the correct word... an then i have to cc&p the word i decide to use cause if i donít i will surly misspell it again (to me... trying to remember the order of letters in a word is much like trying to remember a sequence of numbers) so if i had to do that to all my posts i wouldnít post at all... so the way i post is much like the way i talk an is comfortable for me... an if me an my posting style ant welcome here by the owners of this group i will leave.!!!
    There are still a couple of errors in it, but it is vastly more intelligible. In the majority of cases the correct word from the choices offered was the first word. In most of the remaining cases the option was obvious. In only two or three instances was there ambiguity over which word would have been the right option in the context.

    In short your excuse is ill founded and I am of the definite opinion that your entire posting style is deliberately contrived. All you need do to convince me otherwise is to take the short amount of time necessary to run a spell check on your future posts. Failure to do so in will rightly be seen as a deliberate insult to forum members.

    cluelesshusband, I gave you a warning the day you first signed on to this forum and now that several members have complained and raised valid concerns, I'm enforcing it. Drop the bumpkin act and post legibly or leave. If you will do neither, I'll terminate your account.

    Since you purposely re-typed "esample" rather than "example" in the post above, you are clearly acting and having a piss at our expense. You have your decision to make.

    This is an interesting occurrence within a philosophy section of the forum. Just by observing the picture clueless uses as an avatar paired with the terrible grammar one either concludes that this person is without education or understanding of the english language or someone looking to provoke a response. Considering that spellcheck is built in and that good points were made by the person in question one can assume clueless is looking to provoke controversy.

    Not necessarily a bad thing if it gets people fired up and thinking. Oftentimes discord and chaos bring out very interesting and viable ideas. For example, trolling in a philosophy forum does potentially demonstrate freewill and reaction to cultural biases created by repeating collective thought patterns. It also is a perfect demonstration on the need for authority to maintain order within a given structure, lack of authority could potentially lead to entropy of the forum and dissolution of a meeting place to speak of the very things that this thread represents.

    Clueless, I would love to hear your interpretation of all this, preferably in understandable english! 8)

    snapcracker, your points are well made. (Welcome to the forum, by the way.) Clueless's act - for I am now convinced it is an act - is like neighbou'rs child playing the piano. The first time you see it, although painful, you are mildly entertained. Soon, however, it becomes tedious and thoughts of infantacide emerge.

    I've been absent for a while so assumed he's one members' sock puppet. Guess he'll make a fresh & honest account now, or revert to old.

    Simply because it split off from a thread in this section and a mod placed it in the same section.

    I split this off from the 'Breakdown' thread so discussion could continue there, and since the majority of concerns were from members who regularly post in Philosophy, I thought it an appropriate place to leave the split for comments until a consensus is reached.

    Leave the guy alone. Even if it's a yokel act, and I'm not sure it is, he's no more annoying than half the other members around here.

    Whilst I will always support the provider/s of a site such as this to make their own decisions in driving their own ship - as it were; generally for the service of the rest of us, I must say it would certainly be a disappointment to me if this negative focus has the effect of driving clueless away.

    I have found him to possess a level of open humility and genuinely unimpeded inquisitiveness which is quite a contrast to what we usually find around these environs - as they are, with (too many) members locked into bromidic and gloomy pathways of perception based upon conventional yet seemingly narcoleptic reasoning, generally buttressed by a liberal splash of arrogant swagger. Of course, they would disagree, being clearly a definition of such condition.

    Even though I feel it may well be unlikely after all this, I am hopeful that the genuine humility Clueless enjoys will permit and support him to rise above such adverse furor in a manner that I would certainly find exceptionally difficult.

    In my opinion, we need more of his ilk in this aphotic world, and particularly on sites such as this.

    Clueless's absence makes me wonder if I was being rash when I called him out. If he were a joker I doubt he would have left without a fight...hopefully we'll find out soon enough what's going on...

    ___Simple prejudice and bigotry.
    ___Rather then give them the chance to show their intelligence in other ways then "proper" English, some people just attacked.
    ___People, governments and corporations are trying to teach children that it is okay to be yourself (as long you are not directly hurting others), because others will accept you for that and that you should accept others as they are, but usually when such an opportunity occurs to prove that such a thing is a truth in society and not a lie that is told, guess what happens.

    ___SkinWalker.

    ___True. They might normally show an impecable usuage of the English language and are merely using the yokel attitude for another purpose on this site. If that is true, why not let time pass so that the purpose can be found out. And if they are attempting to make fools of others, by rising to the bait aren't you just allowing another person to make a fool of you/you feel foolish? You do remember the saying, "No-one can make you feel anything about yourself unless you allow it."
    ___The question again arises though; if the concepts behind the words can be understood, especially in this day and age of twitter and texting languages (which are acceptable), why should it matter the language used?
    ___Another thing to think about; are they attempting an experiment in psychology among 'scientific minds' to see the level of acceptence of others who are different? In which case, what data has been given to them about such minds concerning prejudice and bigotry?
    The world is the way it is, because we like it this way.
    Otherwise, we would change it.

    It isn't as if we banned the guy straight out. His account is still active, actually. But he was given a choice: either drop the yokel act, or post intelligibly.

    And it is an act. Or at least its a condition he can quite easily overcome with the addition of spellcheck. He claims to use WebTV. WebTV has a spellchececker built in.

    In addition, he very clearly wanted to misspell his words. This is evident in several cases where all he had to do is type what he just quoted. Instead, he purposely misspelled, ostensibly to enhance his "yokel persona." Indeed, there was at least two posts in which none of his words were misspelled, so he clearly had the ability.

    We already have many members for whom English is a second language and they are already struggling to participate (on the other hand, we have several for whom English is not their native language who write better than I!). This isn't a general interest forum rather it's a niche forum that has a focus on science. Clear, rational communication is a central theme to a such a discussion forum.

    The request to clueless was not unreasoned or unfair. I'm sure he's a very nice person. I mean him no ill-will. But more than a few members were bothered and annoyed by his act.

    I plead guilty to the accusation of prejudice. I have witnessed clueless husband's incoherent fakery on another forum. I took a considerable time there before reaching the conclusion that he was - at worst - deliberately playing the role of a country bumpkin or - at best - was rudely refusing to make use of a spellchecker. So when I saw his posts here I had indeed prejudged him.

    I fail to see how I can be accused of being a bigot, but I welcome your justificaiton of this claim.

    He did show his intelligence. It was quite clear inthe subtlety of some of his arguments. That removes any excuse he has for writing like an idiot. If he were an idiot his writing style would be tolerable. It is not acceptable as an affectation. As I have pointed out before this makes it difficult for the significant number of forum members who are non-native English speakers.

    So I did not 'just attack' him. I had given him every chance to change on another forum. He chose not to. Feel free to apologise at any time.

    Exactly. He was directly hurting others by preventing non fluent English speakers from understanding and appreciating his underlying arguments. He we being deliberately elitist.

    Guess what happens when an intelligent, knowledgeable individual with interesting thoughts chooses to try to deceive his fellow humans. Some of those fellow humans jump all over him because they find dishonesty distasteful.

    Did I mention you are free to apologise at any time?

    Your failure to understand or appreciate my argument is a rhetorical device of your own making. Consequently banning me would be inappropriate.

    If your failure to understand were due to deliberate actions on my part, that I had control over and which I refused to moderate despite repeated requests, then I should indeed be banned.

    Now isn't that an interesting observation??? Being elitist by falsely presenting as uneducated??

    I guess it makes sense, even though I have not previously come across the concept, and it also poses the question for everyone (that cares), about how 'I' might secretly work at being elitist - possibly even secretly (to some extent) - to myself.

    Self-honesty is such an important ingredient in the make-up of the person we are, especially when we seek to deal in any way with others. Yet it can be such a bitch to feed. Indeed, we all like to be seen by those around us as entirely honest, yet can we truly expect this result when it is not the fundamental manner in the way we relate to self??

    I mean, if I'm not honest with self, can I truly expect others to relate to me as being honest with them??? Even so, failure to support the intrinsic animal that self-honesty is, as Ophiolite explains; is constantly demeaning to self and others - for the above reason and so many more;

    On the other hand, and I almost posted this a couple of weeks ago; someone may promote themself as uneducated in the hope that they might not be asked too many delving questions - which may have less to do with their lacking in answers, than a lacking in self-assurance to locate and/or logically explain those answers that may arise at any time.

    Either way, it would appear the individual would be best encouraged to extend themself for their own sake as well as their audience. But then you come up against the question of perhaps further damaging a previously harmed being.

    This is true, but does not - I think - apply to cluelesshusband.
