I didn't realize how dumb so people here could get! People with Autism don't grow out of it.I've know plenty of people with Autism,and it doesn't go away with age. And if this forum is a prime example of good grammar, then why do half of you use made up words ,or run sentences?

Who said anything about autism going away?

 

You really need to learn to quote people if you are talking to them. Half the time I have no idea who you are addressing.

You can't tell us that our grammar is bad when your punctuation is horrible and half your sentences don't make sense.

I've learned not to engage in pointless debates.

 

Reading through this thread reminds me of going to parliament for the first time. 

 

So I'm just going to say that my vocabulary is above average and I are nerd :)


THE HELL YOU READING FOOL???

Are we talking New Zealand parliament, or American parliament?

Because I have a sneaking suspicion that they are two very different things.

Maybe we are all pulling a Bill Shakespeare and making up words to suite things we don't yet have words or phrases for?

And run on sentences do actually have a place in the literary world, of which this place is not a part of.

 

I think the general attitude toward you of late is due to the way in which you go about forming your opinions and attempting to poke holes in everyone else's.

We are a fairly intelligent bunch, and tend to not let foolish threads/posts go un-scrutinized when the poster has not proven them self to be a decent person in some fashion.

 

I understand that it can be hard to jump in to a group of people who already have a flow and rhythm to their world, but going about it the way you have is a sure fire way to piss some people off and cause a bit of a backlash.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

I do not.

Tried it once, wrote a small poem about desire and yearning, of all things.

It turned out okay enough, then I never went back to it.

 

The trick is to acquire new words and phrases as frequently as possible and use them as much as possible until they become common place in my syntax.

Then I end up sounding quite a lot more convincing and full of flare than I did before.

Which is amazingly useful in situations like this.

 

So, I guess what I am saying is thanks for the ego boost, but anyone can do what I do given the proper motivation and and a small amount of guile.

I am also very, very tired.

So that may be giving me a hard edge in my posts as well.

The more I think about it the more I'm beginning to think she is just a troll. I mean coming on the forum with the name "NerdGirl11" is a pretty big red flag to begin with. Next, the fact that she continues to come here even though her experience has been nothing but a flame war the entire time is another big hint that it is probably intentional. Lastly, her spelling has gotten gradually worse over her time here, which really makes me think she is playing on that hard.

 

I think I'm done with this thread.

I think tea and coffee and lace cookies and those neat little lemon cookies with powdered sugar on them would be grand. We can all do our best to look dashing and act like we're the upper crust of the Victorian Era.
