Troll Mail: No, U Dumb. Me Tarzan.
Recently, a troll by the name of freddie jackson (he didn’t feel the need to capitalize his own name, so why should I?) wrote in the comments section of my About page:
bitch u dumb
Who is this guy? What is his comment in response to? This doesn’t appear to be a response to any particular thing that I’ve said. Hell, it isn’t even a response to a post. It’s just a random comment on my About page, in which I briefly describe myself. Is it in response to my atheism? Is it that he doesn’t like my childfreedom? Does he not approve of my pro-choice stance? Is he not a fan of revolvers? I have no idea.
Whatever freddie’s problem with me was, it seems it wasn’t important enough for him to bother to even mention. Frankly, I’m not interested in exploring the ideas of someone who wasn’t interested himself enough to actually make any point. The whole of the message is ‘i dumb.’ No capital letters of verbs needed, apparently.
As lower-case-f freddie didn’t make any kind of point in his comment for me to respond to, I simply corrected his English and pointed out the irony of him attempting to insult my intelligence.
I believe that should be written, “Bitch, you are dumb.”
So, you think I’m dumb, huh? Well, at least I would pass a basic English class.
Another person who didn’t find his own name important enough to capitalize, ben, chimed in.
Pretty funny. Before criticizing others, you might want to fix the grammatical and punctuation errors in the following:
“People who feel the need to write the word “truth” with a capital “T,” when not grammatically necessary, aren’t actually talking about truth, but dogma they want you to believe is truth.”
I actually don’t know what, if anything, is wrong with that quote of mine on the top of the page. However, maybe some English major might come along and tell me I’ve got commas in the wrong places. Curiously, ben didn’t see fit to do so himself. At least I showed freddie the correct way to type mindless ad hominems.
I don’t pretend to have infallible writing skills. Anyone who reads this blogs will find that, despite using spell and grammar check as well as proofreading myself, I miss things. There incidences of typos, misspellings, using the wrong words, improper grammar, and so on. Some are original mistakes. Others are erroneous ”corrections” made by the computer which are not caught by me. It happens.
However, I’d like to think that anyone who reads this blog would have sense enough to be able to tell the difference between someone who is trying to write in an acceptable way, and someone who deliberately writes like a brain-damaged chimp. It’s the difference between a B and an F. At least I try to use actual words and complete sentences, which is more than can be said for poor, barely literate freddie.
