@hingehead,
Assume that I reminded u that my IMPROVEMENTS in spelling
represent a calculated effort to drag society, kicking n screaming
into the 21st Century.*

* subtle reference to supremacy of Individuals
over their CHILD: society.

This one is particularly good for this time of year, hinge.

Maybe sometimes.
It depends on how u look at it
and the objective value of the gift.

@OmSigDAVID,
David, your nitpicking doesn't make the world advance.

Should I go into rebutting your points one by one, which I could easily do, I wouldn't convince your frozen mind of the soundness of that quote.

I do think that simple facts of life are far beyond the grasp of your close-mindedness..

As so, you can have the last word...

I am standing up for the rights of the citizens to NOT be robbed.

I have no interest in making the world ADVANCE (toward WHAT ?)

Your inference that spelling will improve society motivates me to once again point out your loose grip on reality.

@djjd62,
Thanks Deej, for bringing in Douglas Adams, and, I think you'll find a more apropos quote, a la Tom Waits, is

"I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy."

David,
Society of the 21st century is already kicking and screaming without your inflicting spelling improvements on them. Food and shelter first, then spelling games?

I said what I said in the ubiquitos context
that EVERYTHING we say is futile commentary
and that NOTHING that any of us posts has
any effect in the outside world.

Everyone ELSE knows that;
Y don t YOU know it ?

Rather than arguing a point not made as though you are a genius?

PS the mere fact that you pissfart about with font weights and colors solidifies my notion that you have too much time on your hands.

Leave it to me to desecrate Socrates with a stupid typo!
That's "IS not worth living."
