You've got to be fucking kidding me.
or should that be: U hav to be fuking kiding me
looks like l33t. I'll pass
Ugh. Please, please, PLEASE no. This simplified spelling garbage bothers the hell out of me. I'd much rather type & write in a version of the English langauge that has been largely similar and commonly accepted over the past ~200 years.
Those people, and the ever-at-risk children they champion for would do well to read more books, where they will slowly become accustomed to root words to help them better understand the strange multisyllabic words they will encounter when they read something beyond a third-grade reading level...or a text message.
On second thought...
"Youv'e got to be fucking kidding me?!" works better.
I spent more time trying to read the "easier" spelled words than the properly spelled words. In other words, what a horrible idea.
Is that supposed to say "root?" Cause that one gave me the most trouble. I kept trying to say "rowet" even though I was pretty sure it was supposed to be "root."
Spelling is actually really really simple. How 'bout you motherfuckers work on simplifying the use of proverbs, adverbs, clauses and the whatnot.
Or you could use spell check...
That's because you like, know how to read. I wonder if these people have thought about the fact that it would be harder for some 90% of the population to adapt to this gobbledygook than it would be to just teach kids in grade school how to fucking read and write properly in the first place.
Will this new system apply to Ebonics as well?
Why am I reminded of Newspeak from 1984? This is truly doubleplussungood.
Tch, it's just plain lazy. And painful. I cannot stand to read poor spelling like that one bit. No sir.
The sad thing is, that if you start spelling things like that, people will still misspell things.
Typical. Kids can't pass a test? Don't try to teach them better, make the test easier. Kids can't get a passing grade? Don't focus on teaching them and helping them to make that grade (god forbid!), lower the passing grade. Kids can't spell? Don't put the time and effort into teaching them how to spell properly, just make the words 'easier' to spell. Education trends like this is why there are so many goddamn stupid people and why their numbers continue to increase. The education system is more focused on making things easier for children than teaching vital concepts.
I mean no disrespect here guys but it its not like you yanks don’t already spell loads of shit wrong.
I mean can you imagine how difficult communication would become, unless they some how plan to force this crap on the rest of the world to. I mean I am dyslexic here, so I know my spelling and grammar aren’t always the best but damn it if suddenly half the people I know on line started typing that rubbish I wouldn’t have a clue what they were on about.
Another step twards the destruction of the human race. Soon no one will be smart enough to breath then all will be right with the world.
What is with this dumbing everything down to the lowest common denominator? Must me stoop to the lack of intelligence so that others feel normal? What is this Harrison Bergeron crap? How about teaching in a more productive way than maeking evereone tipe liek this?
That is a bunch of crap. Way too radical of a course of action; will never happen, at least not in our lifetimes.
I had a horrific time trying to read that...
Crazy rednecks and their excuses and protests bent on dumbing down America to their own level of stupidity, so the future of mankind makes them look smart.
I found the article harder to read then one of omega knights posts.
Separate names with a comma.
