Ik denk dat jullie allemaal eens moeten ophouden met dit gelul. Galaxyspinner is gewoon een enorme klootzak die denkt iedereen op zijn nummer te moeten zetten. Een betweterige zeikerd en meer niet. As for my English, I think you will find it vastly superiour to that of most native speakers. Of course I too am guilty of the occasional mistake, nobody's perfect (except for G. Spinner of course), but they are not peccadillos born out of disregard for the rules of spelling or grammar. It is abhorrent to me to see how little pride some people take in their written communications.
@Crunchy No, please don't take it that we Englishers are unappreciative of foreigners speaking English. It is just hard to discern the effort someone has applied when all you're seeing is a username like "CrunchyMittens", which could easily be from any English-speaking country. Well, pretty much any country. Save maybe an African one. (Too hot there for mittens.) I've greeted many an east-Asian with showers of encouragement for their long-suffering with English. But, mostly in-person.
@TuraSatana "Perkele" LOL
@Everyone How interesting that this commentary on an amusing comic got so derailed when PHB's expression at the sight of a button is so hilarious
I can't talk about other countries, but USA has probably more people that speak English incorrectly than can, I feel sometimes. The entire southern part of the USA. Some people literally speak like Boomhauer from King of the Hill, some people talk as if they are too lazy to move their jaw and have a mouth full of marbles.
I don't want to seem racist saying this, because it isn't, it is true, but talk to a southern black person (i'd say woman for this example, but i think i just deal with more women than men) from an area like Mississippi. Probably coincidence that Mississippi seem the worst at speaking as I am sure neighboring states are just as bad.
KingMidnight, thank you for semi-proving my point. You admit that English is your second language and go on to both unnecessarily insult my personal intelligence and claim to "often misspell English words." But, when reading through your passage, you have more errors of word choice or grammar than spelling errors. (your usage of the conjunction "don't" instead of "doesn't," for example) And you also admit that you agree with my point of spelling errors being derivative of impatience and a lack of care when typing vastly inconsequential and anonymous words, like comments on a comic strip. I'm not sure why you felt the need to directly insult me, though. People can be wrong or just of a different opinion without being stupid. I can only base my opinion off of personal experience, which has led me to realize that Americans tend to care far less about spelling or the written word than any of the other nationalities that I've come into contact with.
