Disclaimer: This is not meant to offend anyone in any way, I'm just trying to see if the way they post helps or hurts their "discussions".

 

 

As I sit here, getting a headache as I try to decrypt a post by Gromnir, I was struck by a thought... how many people acutally bother to read these "alternate" styles of posts?

 

So speak up :D Do you bother? or do you just pass on by? Does it help to make their arguments more "memorable" or does it cause your brain to hemorage? :lol:

I don't need to translate Gromnir's posts. They ar every much understandable. Now, I'm lucky where Sarge is concerned as I'm used to his Wemician language I have a 1st Degree Knowledge of it now. I pity those who don't 'cause otherwise it's just gibberish. :lol:

I thought Sargy was wearing two baseball gloves when he first started typing the way he does. Now I don't have any problem understanding his gibberish :lol:

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Neither. Both are fairly easy to understand. What I don't understand is, why do they even bother ? :unsure:

They're both gibberish to me. I just ignore them. It's difficult enough reading and writing english (I am swedish) without having to go through another layer of translating. Besides, 90% of what those two write is crap anyhow :unsure:

I find the same to be true.

 

If you find either of them difficult reading try the Canterbury Tales or The Sound and the Fury.

Well, considering I was able to teach myself how to read Old and Middle English pretty well with a little help from reference sources here and there, Grom and Sarge are easy reading.

 

I find it helps if you imagine Grom's posts in a Gollum voice, and Sarge's in a bad Scottish accent. :rolleyes:

...bad Scottish accent, eh???...yer close, lad...OK; I's'll "spill the beans" a wee bit on where's I gits it:

 

 

...when I was in the military, me best friend was a lad by the name o' Chad "Moose" Hedderson from the grand Isle o' Newfoundland...now, y'all may 'ave a hard time believin' this, but I's'll be damned if'n ol' Moose didna talk jus' like this...ask any Kanadian whose had the pleasure o' takin' a trip ta "The Rock" an' theys'll tell ya that Newfie-ese ain't the easiest dialect ta translate, an' Moose's particular accent was e'en more poluted than most...

 

 

...there; now ya's knows... :rolleyes:

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

"Gollum voice." Love it. :D

 

Anyway, Sargy's accent is fun. Gromnir's just makes me want to smack him.
