I just noticed he types pretty well now. Remember how he typed when he first joined? Like most english newbs he typed like he was text messaging. I love how almost everyone who initially types badly improves if they stick around here. It often seems to coincide with an improvement in the content of their posts too.

I'll post the pictures once I get them developed tomorrow, hopefully. It's awesome, all the pickups are gold (tuning keys aswell) the body and frets are totally black and it has pearl inlays on the frets. It blows the Talman out of the water, amazing action. Also, i've been playing since I got it. :cool:

That's true, PIB. It's the same rule as in any other community basicly, internet or otherwise. If you going to join an existing group, you either pick on their habits or you leave the group. We have a lot of great members that joined in '02 and '03 and '04 and fit in perfectly with the rest and contributed on their own.

But yeah, he's improved as far as typing goes, naturally. Makes sense. One thing I've noticed is that active participation in webforums often leads people to write more on their own time. Composition and shit, I mean.

now if only he would stop being a complete and utter idiot. btw typing in games, and forums has made my typing skills and use of punctuation go down the tubes. i type faster now, though i always typed fast.

I agree that he types more correctly now than when he first joined... but I still think that most of his posts are absolute crap.

At least there was something amusing about "WE'RE NOT A BBS COUPLE!"

Now he tries to emulate other BBS users and pretty much attempts to shut down everyone else. And fails.

I remember both of you devoting pages and pages to arguing about that.

As for making you you - perhaps. But it also makes you annoying and unoriginal.

She made tho threads, as for what they said... I can't remember, I never listen to her in real life, so why the fuck would I listen to her on a forums?

No, it makes you someone else. Just be yourself. Do people truly find you that annoying out in the real world?

The form of his posts has improved. The content however is still brainless.

And you have to accept certain rules within a group to be at least tolerated, if not respected. One of them is correct spelling on here, for sure.

You should try having a conversation with her, 90% of the stuff that comes out of her mouth is lies, and even a few members here can back me up on that. (notdoc and Mentallychallenged)

We don't give a shit about her, idiot - we're talking about how the CONTENT OF YOUR POSTS HASN'T IMPROVED.

What, guys, I thought caps might help him understand!

Anytime anyone ever says anything negative about him, he brings Kim into it. ALWAYS. Which just brings us back to one reason why we're complaining about him; the fact that he always treated her like shit.

Now he'll probably come back with "okay, you have no idea, okay?!"

And notdoc and Mentally Challenged aren't exactly credible sources, no offense intended to them.

That's when your supposed to end the relationship. It doesn't seem like you two understand that yet though.

Thought youse two were separated. Although I have to admit that on some level, you'd do the world a favor by being together - it'd make both of you unavailable to anyone else.

There was a quote like that. "It's better to have 2 miserable people than 4," I think, but it could be something similar.

Adds to my long time belief that participation like this is a very good thing.

I always suspected your style of typing to be a form of rebellion. Anyway, it's clear that you know how to write correctly, and your spelling is generally flawless. It's the new members that type like complete crap that concern me, because I can never be sure if it's laziness or just sheer stupidity and poor education. And since the worst offenders tend to come from my own homeland I find it somewhat embarressing.

Maybe I've only been seeing the better ones. None of his posts have made me cringe for a while now. True, none that I've seen have been great, but I appreciate any improvement in people. I suppose it could just be that now his typing has improved he doesn't stick out to me so much anymore.
