The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'm no grammatical wizard. I misplace comma's all the time. I'm still not sure when to use an em dash, but I don't think anybody really knows for sure. I even spell words wrong. A typo here and there is fine, but I can't stand it when extremely opinionated adults fail to string a single sentence of words together. There is never an instance that calls for a double triple, or even quadruple comma, and the underscore has no business appearing in a sentence at all. I just feel that no matter how positive, or well informed you are, that entire post you spent a half hour crafting will just make you appear to be a bag of douche, especially when it's riddled with insults.

I jist dont''' see how_somebody ,can rite like this_and have the narve,,,,,to call people retarded.....

And that's another thing. Have some compassion for people who were born with a mental disability. I am totally offended by anybody who tosses around the word retard, or retarded, using it as an insult. I have a few friends who have autistic children, a few with Down's. That just ticks me off to hear people say things like that. You should be ashamed of yourself!

There isn't anything wrong with using more than one comma in a sentence correctly. I was referring to the use of a series of commas like this.

"DUDE,,,,, I'm so cool,,,ya know!

Kyle, I'm sure it's good to have a hero or roll model. But you need to understand that Tim stirs the pot and brings those responses on himself...maybe you should learn to deal with it ...get a grip already.

As far as his right to talk about... whatever or respond to stuff the way he does is not his right it's a privilege. This is not a public site protected by the first amendment....not even close. Why he wasn't given the boot already...is beyond me. He blatantly disregards 'so called' rule one. He has posted a link that if you open it...it will lock up your computer...that alone should have prompted someone to hand him his walking papers. Now I don't know Tim and don't really have a problem with him....it's just the way I see it.

I'm going to have to assume that you're just a child, who doesn't understand what a blog is. Let me get this straight. Tim can make comments in a public forum thread and call every person on here a retard, but I can't post a rant blog. It's my damn blog isn't it? I wasn't giving advice, just ranting out loud, and I'm sure 90% of the other users of this site agree with me. This is not a discussion thread. You should take your own advice. Nobody's forcing you to read this, and no I won't shut up.

Guys, if you don't like it, don't read it. Don't bash Tim.

Its the internet, he can right whatever he wants. He isn't forcing you to read it.

Now, take your advice and shut up.

My entire rant was based off of Tim's disregard of rule number one. Calling the entire team of respondents retards is a bit crude, eh? Wait, wasn't it something like "fuç*ing retards"? That's some bullcrap.

Bad grammar is not a style.
Comment by Kyle Jacob Smalling on October 3, 2008 at 5:19pm
No. Now this, is bullcrap. Refer to rule one

Wow...Did you know refer spelled backwards is refer?

You can't just go around and make fun of the way Tim types, you know what, that's just his style. My friends have their own style too. Its like a handwriting.

And as for calling things "retarded", thats just how people are. My entire generation uses that word freely because that's just how it is. It won't change because 10000 people don't like it.

Oh yes, the rambling, nonsensical Rosie O'Donnell blogs. Who could forget those?

Perhaps Tim needs to take a break from disc golf to learn the English language. Maybe he takes inspiration from the infamous Rosie O'Donnell blogs that contain nonsensical haiku and rambling stream-of-consciousness.
Comment by John Hodgkins on October 3, 2008 at 2:07pm
lol, I'm sure Tim did it on purpose, I just can see some one of his intelligence not intentionally doing that...

But good point Mr. Thingdoer.
