I've noticed that many of the forum discussions that TA has tweeted lately have contained glaring grammatical and spelling errors. I find this disappointing and even personally embarrassing as it inevitably reflects not only on the original poster but on the forum as a whole and, by extension, the larger atheist community. I know written communication isn't everything, and it certainly isn't a high priority among the public generally, but we should try to meet a higher standard. Given the unlikelihood that individual posters will suddenly take more care when writing, I think the operators of the site's Twitter feed should consider not tweeting discussion titles with serious errors.
That's one poster's opinion, for whatever it's worth.
@Lars - Aaannddd English is not your first language - whereas most of the people on this site speak only one - so you are doing REAALLLY well. I would guarantee there is bi-lingual-tri-lingual etc on this site. How clever are they?
I speak one, and that, not very well :) How many languages do you speak.
RE: "my excuse is that I am dyslexic"
And my excuse is that I am dysfunctional, but I've never let that stop me --
You wouldn't be Italian, by any chance?
Sorry, Lars - just American humor, I mean, who could possibly have a name like Lars Nielsen, and not be Irish?
Nope I am not Irish I am Dane and I am proud :D
Just my warped sense of humor, Lars, welcome to TA.
Start to doub if your mind is right :D
The jury is still out on that --
Danish (Nativ) (Three different dialects)
British English (Second)
And then a very, very small bit of the following:
Hebrew, Spanish, Japanese
And thanks ^_^
Wouldn't that be lysdexic, then?
Do not think so :)
Lars, has anyone every told you that you are very literal-minded? You don't see that a dyslexic might spell/write/read/say "dyslexic" as "lysdexic"?
