@DrewDad,

Nevertheless, you're theory about why some people act like jerks on the Internet is incorrect.
I am not accepting your premise that refusing to conform to enforced niceness is jerkish behavior. Don't forget, I am the one who despises the victim culture, and this cry "you are not allowed to confront me!" is right out of the victims guide book. In real life you compete, and if you fail you die. It should be no different for ideas.

@hawkeye10,
Er... Where have I cried "you are not allowed to confront me"?

You're the one claiming to be a victim; that everyone is forcing you to conform to a standard of behavior that you can't tolerate.

OK, joking aside:
for centuries, spelling has been rong, in failing to conform to sound reasoning.
It atavistically preserves throwbacks to the more Germanic origins of English in pre-Chaucerian times.
Written spelling shoud bear full fidelity to the oral sound,
with possilble variations qua homonyms to indicate which definition is intended.
Silent letters that serve as pronunciation guides r also logically acceptable,
e.g. the last letter in Rome.

It is an attack against logic to add the letters UGH to the word tho.
It is simply stupid, and devoid of rewarding purpose to persist in that misconduct.

It is ineffably idiotic to insert any Ls into the words woud, coud or shoud.
No good comes from doing that.

It makes no sense to spell the word enuf as "enough".
This has got to stop; it WILL stop, especially with texting now,
but I like to help stupidity into the trash can as soon as possible.

Children shoud not be misinformed as to the correct spelling of words.

The Spanish shoud not have a conceded monopoly on logical spelling.

For too many decades, I was complicit in mindlessly perpetuating
the erroneous paradime of spelling; I was guiltstruck.
I am now atoning for my earlier (conventional) errors of spelling.


I plead guilty to my failure to be fully consistent
in my fonetic spelling, but its better than nothing; its better than doing it the old way.

@hawkeye10,
The problem is that the righties are much more rude than the lefties.

I don't know, the lefties keep telling me that they know better than I how I should live my life, and that is extremely offensive...and the righties don't do it so often. In the end it might be a draw which clan is worse.

@hawkeye10,
The thing is, the righties and lefties and liberteenies and inbetweenies I know are, most of the time, not rude.

@ossobuco,
I have learned from rude comments sometimes, but even they were taunts in the midst of generally not personally antagonistic free for all, probably weren't thown at me as a person. I've learned from reasoned discourse too many times to say.

Slamming, including slamming the person, on the other hand, seems like this useless game full of hot air, however clever.

Being on the internet is voluntary...chosing a website is voluntary.
