I have only ever percieved one as ignorant if they can't spell their own primary language. To say one is still percieved as ignorant simply because he wanted to put a smiley after a well constructed sentence is only arrogant in itself.

What you're not noticing is the drool...

You don't half take things literally, Draco.

I noticed the drool, that's why I was offended... Anyways, it looks like you have found my Internet persona nickname. Dracovyrn was actually athe name of a small dragon in the n64 game, Aidyn Chronicles. Other than wolves in reality, my favorite mystical creatures were dragons, wyverns, and dracos. A dracovyrn was a baby wyvern, hence, Dracovyrn.
After using it as my persona on PS3, many, it would seem, would mispronunciate my name. Instead, they would call me by my widely accepted nick name, "Draco."

The more you know, right?

I still think you're taking the cartoon too literally.

The 'Readers Perception' segment mirrors my own thoughts of the subject.

Are you any good with facial expressions? The second figure on the cartoon wasn't 'excessively happy' by my reading.

Actually, I meant the text looked excessively happy. The cartoon, on the other hand, was that of someone... special. Which is not how I picture it at all.

Being from the stone age,60's not cave man,and working at a job that required no internet skills for 40 plus years,makes communicating a bit of a challenge in text.I have got myself in trouble on here a few times. I do love drums and drumming, so I'm staying.Learning to communicate in text is just a bonus.So its not the age thing,it is however a learning thing.What is a emoticon? Some day I will learn to type with a second finger. :]

I'm 37 and some of the ways that the young kids nowadays manipulate the English language drives me nuts. Deliberately shortening words and using text message abbreviations, I want to grab them by the head and force feed them a dictionary. When people say "BTW" my blood boils. There are 5 syllables spoken when you say "BTW", but only 3 if you say "by the way". Do they realize how stupid they are for trying to be cute and shorten something, only to really make it longer?

In Arkansas turn signals seem to be optional. I'm used to it, but speeding up to get in front of me and then turning immediately should be grounds for death.

Haha, no, I own a Steyr M9, so I cock that. It can't be locked as it has no manual safety. Ironically, my pistol was designed by Wilhelm Bubits who used to work for Glock.

As does going to the gun range, and going hiking. Nothing seems to calm the nerves better than being in the woods.

.
Thankfully I do not own a firearm...I don't think I have the necessary self control bro...
I do make the noise of a slide being locked back sometimes tho; my wife now takes that as a cue to evacuate me from the environment..
she also intervenes when I stand wistfully looking at knife displays, hammers, chain saws etc....
(I was going to end with a 'txt' style message...but given your possession of your Steyr...possibly not..)

So toodle pip from England my friend.

When I have a headache I go practice some triplet rudiment grids. Also, We were more speaking about the use of emoticons. I don't promote bad spelling, grammar, or unnecessary shortening of words, unless in texting situations with my girlfriend where space is limited and "Ain't no one got time fo dat."

BTW... do you know what really makes my blood boil? Those who can't take a joke.

Default Re: Communication Issues between young and elder, alike!

When I first got onto the internet in my early 40"s. I read a piece of advice online that said something to the effect "Don't post anything online you wouldn't want to be read back aloud in a court of law." I try to always keep that in mind when posting so as to keep it lucid, concise and to the point. It's a challenge for me at times to do this and to not come across with any hint of smugness, sarcasm or unintended meaning.

And neither does the Glock have a manual safety, that locks the slide ..... and does all that stuff that's needed on say, a Colt 1911. The Glock functions very similar to the Steyr.

JK, JK, I'm just playing here. It seems that you have a good sense of humor, and I'm the class clown. Hehe!
Not to pile on...

And these:

My writing skills requires no improvement.

I use the occasional "lol," no different then my mom, or my grandma, really, but not much else...

I think that emoticons are useful for those instances where a persons vocabulary is not sufficiently broad enough to convey emotion in context. Take the following example into account.

Quote:
I stepped in a pile of dog feces.
This supplies the historic information, but doesn't let us know how the writer feels.
Quote:
I stepped in a pile of dog feces. :-(
This tells us the emotional state of the author, in addition to the account.
Quote:
I stepped in a pile of dog shit.
Through the use of dysphemism, the writer provides both the account and his emotional state. The emoticon is unnecessary, as the author is capable of conveying his unhappiness through the choice of vocabulary.

Jonny Sumo;1164988 said "how do you feel when people turn in front of you without indicating?"

I make sure my cloaking device is in the off position

"...or stand chatting and blocking the supermarket aisle?"

I usually say "excuse me please" they move and then I say "Thank you"

I find you're query presumptive and somewhat offensive.
