Thread: Do You Find It Irritating...

  1. #1

    Default Do You Find It Irritating...

    If you see me...typing...like ...that ...in Singlish?

    Seems to me that in our local forums many people type their entries or post in this manner. It may seem cute to some but it's bloody annoying to be reading dots every few words. (Especially some who keep saying they're noobs and want to freeload a model shoot) Attracting Flames

    Some use that as punctuations, meaning pause...

    ../azul123

    P.S. in case you ask why have ../ then nick. This is used when you have a secretary who type your work and indicates that at he end of the letter or memo, if the person type it then it follows with his name or usually just initial. Habits die hard.

    I am more annoyed by SMS and instant messaging slang (including "noob"). U know, 2 sum ppl&kidz this is l33t. The use of an ellipsis (...) is well established in many situations, literally meaning something got left out, but frequently also in the sense of "fill in the blank what I thought but was too nice to write".

    Not sure about the connection to freeloaders, but if every freeloader (myself included) were to leave this place, it would be very, very quiet. And aren't those organizers (which for fairness should be called "pimps" as long as they refer to models as "sexy babes") who advertise their commercial services without paying for it also freeloaders?

    I think this is a forum to express your thought and not the style of typing. Maybe we should just look into the content rather than the style and if ... is too much for some, just skip to the next.

    Finally someone out there who understands. To be honest, I'm very disappointed to be associated with these kinds of people as I'm still a youth too at 19 years. Can you imagine 19-year-olds speaking like that? Can you imagine 19-yr-old GUYS on the streets actually SPEAKING like that? Yes, they actually say, "sianZZZ" and emphasize the "ZZZ"s. Sometimes I really want to give them a good smack upside their heads.

    And don't even get me started on their still-on-going bullsh*t of "kor kor" and "mei mei" relationships. The way I see it, these terms were invented by guys as an excuse to get close to these dumbass chicks because they can't get them for girlfriends. A sad case of "bo her hae mah ho" eh?

    Same thing what the Sinatra era said about the Beatles era,
    and the Beatles era about the Disco/Heavy Metal era,
    and the Disco/Heavy Metal era about the Madonna/Michael Jackson era,
    and so on and so forth...
