Howdy, Stranger!

It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

Can I make a few suggestions, hon?

First off, you create a lot of new threads, and - from what I've seen - about 90% of your threads are off-topic even for an Off-Topic forum!  I've often gotten the impression the only reason you post is to drive up your post count.  Now, you can save yourself a lot of this heartache (and what has got to be complete humiliation) if you would think about what you post before posting it.  When creating a new thread, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is the topic on which you wish to post one of a general interest of the forum's readers?
  • Is the topic something that can be discussed by the forum's general populace?
  • Does a thread discussing that topic already exist? (if so, then post your thoughts there instead of creating a new thread).

Once you've answered the above questions, have determined that your topic meets the above criteria, and have actually written the post, I strongly suggest you do the following:

  1. Check for proper spelling.  This board's text editor has a decent spell-check utility built in.  Use it.
  2. Avoid the sort of shorthand typing commonly associated with cell-phone text messaging and kiddie chat rooms.  People who use such forms of shorthand in a message forum really give a rather poor impression of their intelligence to those reading it.
  3. Check your grammar.  Make me believe that my tax dollars on education are being wisely spent.
  4. Before you press that "Post Message" button, read your post to yourself.  Out loud; to someone else if necessary.  If your post makes no sense when you read it out loud, chances are pretty good that we won't understand what the hell you're talking about either.

Lastly, your age (I assume you're 12?) does not exempt you from certain codes of online etiquette, nor does it excuse you from behaving like a total jackass in the forums.  I strongly urge you to become familiar with basic "Netiquette" principles and practices if you decide you want to continue posting here.  http://www.onlinenetiquette.com/ is a good place to start.

oh whatever...quite frankly, I enjoy it when people say that my post doesn't make sense, so whatever.

Oh, I used the spell check button and you're the one that spelled etiquette netiquette.

I know that you're hiding things
using gentle words to shelter me
your words were like a dream
but dreams could never form me...
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
didn't say good-bye before you left
but I was listening
you'll fight your battles far from me...
Far too easily Save your tears Cause I'll come back

    Please, for the sake of humanity, stop making a fool of yourself. Every new thread you make, just makes other people hate and look down on you more. Learn to post/reply to other people's threads before you start making your own threads.

    I dont think its the grammar, spelling or lack of organization that makes SexiLexi's posts so bad. It's the total randomness, no logic, lack of point, and flaming/cursing that makes them so horrible.


    Tell me Lexi The Phiolospher, what is the point of reading posts that lack a point, lack reason, full of cursing stars, and don't make sense? What are you going to get out of those posts?
