Here is a gripe that is not specifically about cruising but is about this board. My complaint (or gripe) is people who type their post in all CAPITAL letters. Don't they know how hard it is to read. They may actually have something important to say but when it is in all CAPITAL letters, I find it's not worth reading.
My parents were doing it, because they have to use bifocals! I told them the golden rule on the internet, and they have stopped. Yes, I know people out there know, and still do it. Do you think the people like my parents wonder why others haven't figured out how to get those pesky small letters bigger!!!
I think most people who use all caps are fairly new to message boards and chat rooms. Of course I suppose there are a few who just like to be annoying, but normally if you tell someone that their caps are not being well received they'll switch.
Now when I want to be annoying I play with textdecorations. If you jumble them up and [li]use a lot of them[/li] you can really give people [ol]headaches.[/ol] I guess the worst would be to [ul] [ol] [li]use as many of them as possible at the same time. [/ul] [/ol] [/li]
Sorry....just messing around because I am bored today. I really do agree with you Cheryl, reading all caps is hard on the eyes and can make you not want to bother.
davidb i don't get what you are saying are you saying punctuation is important or that some of us just run on and on and don't even bother looking at and proforeading what we have written or are you saying that we should actually remember all that stuff we learned in english class in school just what are you talking about huh i will be eagerly waiting for your reply because i am just very confused with your resoinse to the above aforementioned post
Get a life people the last time I saw this much crying I was picking up my 1 year old from day care. Some of the people in here are the biggest crybabies. Don't post in caps, no long running sentences WAH WAH WAH. This is the kind of thing I see in daycare. Todd took my toy, Brad said a naughty word, Jennifer won't give me my blankie. That is what you sound like. Now I sure someone will go tell on me like they did for my other post but I have made my point.
You know what Cheryl C. Thats a great tag line and I wish more thought that way
Ouso,,,,laughing,,,,,,,,, as your now in the realms of what we say "the pot calling the kettle black".
Not so long ago you where apologising in troll like fashion for your broken English on these boards , now a few months later you are now making comparisons on others posts! That was some speed learning programme my little TA troll !
Oops - sounds like our trolling TA needs a nap! And maybe some "happy pills" If all we can find to gripe about in the whole realm of cruising is typing and grammar then we must be making the right travel choices.
