AE would have ended being a bust regardless of the cost.

The.draft is always a gamble. Hurney and company is no worse tjan other GM's at this.

I think that using an abbreviated "text speak" form of communication makes you look like a retarded 12 year old girl, but that's just me I suppose.

Considering it takes longer to type that way than to type properly, it's impossible to reconcile without just admitting you think you look cool.

Yes English does teach that outside of the classroom the room still applies. However, God gave me enough common sense to know what platform to use correct Grammar and English. Texting and forums does not qualify to be on that platform, what required there is getting your point across using the fewest letters that still allows an intelligent reader to understand. Ohhh, my bad...


Ah, the point of Fluency and Accuracy. I have this debate with my fellow teachers all the time. I rather they be accurate than fluent. Because you can talk your ass off and not get the point across accurately or Struggle speaking but get your point across.


I tell my students that grammar and vocabulary are like your clothes, the more you have the better you'll look and feel. The more diverse you can be. I don't condone bad grammar but it does get mind numbing when people refuse to use it every once and a while. Personally I believe it's laziness. But eh.

There is abbreviated "text speak" used throughout this forum. This is not grade school, it's a forum. You understood what the abbreviations meant but chose to complain, like a 12 year old girl, on the use of said abbreviations. If you want to teach, become one, if you are one, teach!

So you went to school to learn to speak properly, and then threw it out the window when you were done?

When you graduated potty training, did you start pissing yourself again too?

So if the point is to use the fewest letters and get your point across why not say do instead of does? It's correct grammar and it's shorter. Unless you are just trying to use horrible grammar.
