Gosh, you also have serious issues with punctuation!

I don't really understand, and try to take this as a suggestion and not an attack... It's been made pretty clear that we stick to English as a common language and try as much as we can to follow the conventions of English spelling and grammar, in the interest of easier communication. Moreover, non-native English speakers are an important part of this forum, and textspeak may not be so easy for them to decipher.

It's also annoying and inappropriate outside text messages, chat rooms and online games, which many of us enjoy, just not HERE. But continue if you must, and don't be surprised if you end up talking to yourself, basically.

Huh?
Right.
Period.
Punctuation.
GOSH! Relax! Dont pull out all your pubes!

I love this forum! im not being cheesy but i learned alot. I wish i could contribute more but im just a newbie and actually enjoying it. My bf took a peek in here and gave me thumbs up for not wasting my time on the internet (honest!)

I do have a complain though.
1. Being told not to use Deutsch. My bad i forgot swiss has 4 official languages but still. i see others doin it. Why scold me?
2. "no text speak"...is that really necessary? Even my educator friends dont mind. We should be able to even read texts consisting only of consonants! I like to get my message across as fast as possible!
3. Some bad comments get to my nerves and i cant resist but to take it personally) but thats all part of the beauty of anonymity
You'll find in general here the rules are applied sometimes and sometimes not, depending on if you are in the clique
Some people's raison d'etre here is quite bewildering.
It can feel like a blitzkreig at times
Perhaps a coup d'etat? Nevermind I'm starting to get a feeling of deja vu. Feelings of Schadenfreude.....
Would be nice if everything went back to a nice gemütlich atmosphere. Just put it all back into your rucksack and forget about it.

Many people post news in German, and other languages from time to time. 99% it's in English, so if you occassionally use a foreign word don't feel bad.
Text speak , many on here use it. "HTH" is very popular,but I still don't know what it means.

Hahahaha, so thats what it meant. Why so serious? Ive been through with those sexist jokes many many times as i am a sexist pig myself. Ironically, i cant cook though. Hubby does it. So only "The dishwasher" applies. You can also add "the rice cooker". I like that

Re: Confused by this forum

well that uncle sure had a screw or two loose also ...
and what about fatbloke? ... that must be some cousin of some sort ... and wasn't there some female relative around too at some point?

A truly confusing forum indeed. sometimes.
