Am I on the right track in deciphering the message below?

"we aint not good, we baaad" = we are not good, we bad (it is our fault).
"There bqd, and baaaad. hard fer ferners ta image" = they are bad, and indeed bad. It is hard for foreigners to image the true meaning.

Thanks in anticipation

@oristarA,
In the right context, bad means good--something desirable. "That's a bad-ass ride ya got there, mofo."

@oristarA,
For Christ’s sake ask the person who said it what they meant.
Do you know how to PM someone? I wish you would learn.

Of course I know PM very well. But I've had a quarrel with him. So it is not convenient for me to PM him.

Your reply reminds me of the attitude that native speakers would assume: Who cares about what he is saying...

Please just tell me what you think his post means.

@oristarA,
You need to swallow your pride and ask him.

Many times you ask appropriately what something from a published article, something on line means.

However, why do you ask people to play guessing games as to what a person who is right here is asking, when that person is available to answer.

In fact, you don't need to PM.

If you read something on a thread you don't understand the meaning of, quote that person right in that thread, asking them what they meant. You would be getting the information right from the horses mouth.

There is no need to start a totally different thread, that doesn't show the context of the entire conversation, because you don't understand something.

For instance, if you didn't understand what the phrase "from the horses mouth" meant, why would you go start an entirely different thread, when you could just ask me right here?

You overcomplicate things when you just don't ask the person who can directly give you the info.

The native speakers here aren't saying "who cares what he says"

@chai2,
Good idea.
Thank you.

With respect, I'd search "from the horse's mouth" first, failing there, then I would ask you. (Because it's not polite to ask help without one's own effort)(I've got it: DEFINITION
(of information) from the person directly concerned or another authoritative source.
)

As for the question of this thread, if you native speaker couldn't figure out, then it is farmerman's responsibility for writing down improper English. I am satisfied. There is no need to ask for his peculiar definition.

@oristarA,
I knew exactly what farmer meant, even without context. No guessing involved. I would say any native speaker would have known the meaning, even though it wasn’t grammatically correct etc. my issue is with you wanting others to do the work and explain, when you could easily just ask in the thread “what does that mean?” No one would think you were being rude to ask, and it wouldn’t be impolite.

Just go for it and ask right there. It is no big deal.

I've followed you method and posted two questions in the thread. Yet 3 days passed and no one replied.

Should I restart my old job: Posting independent threads to solve the problem?
