Quote# 11655

[Responding to "Notice the uncapitalized "i"'s everywhere." Link added.]

are you really that stupid? i don't capitalize anything, except Christ and God or Jehovah, etc. what sign are you talking about. only lucifer uses so many capitalized "i's" read Isaiah <a href="http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah%2014:12-15&version=9">14:12-15</a>. you haven't done anything but criticise. just because i don't use your method, it doesn't mean i'm not telling the truth.

The Last Conformist

Using proper English orthography is satanic? WTF?

5/14/2006 5:19:13 PM

mad dog

getting decent grades in english class is satanic

\",,,just because i don't use your method, it doesn't mean i'm not telling the truth.\"

This is actually true. However, the method isn't just one person's method, it is the accepted method of sentence construction in English. Those who choose not to use proper English (when attempting to communicate in English) look stupid and probably are stupid. Given no other evidence than your use of English, one can conclude that the odds of your knowing the truth are lowered. In your specific case, the content of your posts further reduce the possibility of your knowing the truth to next to nil.

How does that verse have anything to do with a capital \"I\"?

5/14/2006 5:37:04 PM


Goodness. I shudder to think what this guy would do if he were forced to live in Germany. He'd have fits over all of the caps.

(For those who don't know, all German nouns are capitalized, not just the proper nouns. Oddly enough, the first-person pronoun is not capitalized, but the third-person respectful is.)

The relevance is that Lucifer used the capital \"I\" repeatedly in this passage revealing his ambition to challenge God:

13. \"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.\"

Actually, for a fundie, his(?) spelling isn't that bad, and he seems to be following his own rules of capitalization fairly well (assuming Jec stands for Jesus).

Think e.e. cummings.

You know what? You're gonna fail in life if you refuse to use proper capitalisation.

5/14/2006 6:50:29 PM


This is the stupidest reason I ever saw for not using proper grammar. And on top of that he doesn't follow his own rules either.

i don't capitalize anything, except Christ and God or Jehovah, etc


read Isaiah

Isaiah is on the same level as Christ, God and Jehova?


I just remembered something even funnier. He is assuming that a middle eastern God and his \"angel\" use English as their language of preference. The Dutch version hasn't got the devil capitalised.

5/14/2006 6:52:06 PM


Very true - but both points (your method and the lack of truth) show you're insane which was probably where the bracketed poster was going.

5/15/2006 2:01:05 AM


Go learn proper English, and come back, fuckwit.

5/15/2006 2:25:42 AM


Is this guy mental?

5/15/2006 3:02:29 AM


Capitalization for god?

5/15/2006 3:41:06 AM


Hey, at least he's found the CAPSLOCK.

And remember kids, there's no i's in idiocy - oh wait there's two!

...and three in imbecilic.

5/15/2006 3:45:34 AM


i spy with my little i, something beginning with \"fuckhead!\"

5/15/2006 4:07:54 AM


Non-capitilzation isn't always a sign of stupidity (a good friend who is a sub editor on a large mainstream magazine, and has a Master's degree in English, never capitlizes sentences in e-mails), however in this case, due to the idiotic justification given, I'd say it is.

David D.G.

I taught English for a couple of years, and it amazed me how some people tried to dodge the whole issue of capitalization just to have one less thing to deal with. One girl wrote her papers with every single letter a capital (broken capslock on her pen, maybe?), and she truly had a hard time understanding why that was no better than never capitalizing any letters. To my recollection, though, she never tried to use some religious concept to justify it.

Does anyone else wonder whether this guy uses capital letters when writing out his own name, or those of other people? Or addressing a letter to someone, writing out the names of cities and street names? Does anyone suppose this guy ever got anything better than a \"D\" in an English class if he was using this system at the time?

It's one thing to march to the beat of a different drummer, but complaining that everyone else is out of step but you is just not likely to be right.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. It all boils down to the fact that you're an idiot.

5/15/2006 4:42:52 PM


Exodus 24
And now I send and angel before you to guard you on your way and bring you to the place I have prepared.

And yet capitalisation wasn't too good for GOD?

5/15/2006 4:52:20 PM


\"I'm lazy\" would have been an acceptable excuse... I tend to lapse out of proper punctuation from time to time, but seriously, can we stop with the bullshit?

5/16/2006 5:28:36 AM


Hey Jec-off! The bible did not say \"an i for an I\".


5/16/2006 6:14:53 AM


So Lucifer represents coherent English and God represents mindless retarded babbling? Gotcha.

PS Lucifer has the chat.

5/18/2006 5:27:43 PM


so...pretty much you're a blob of Jesus love?

5/22/2006 2:55:30 AM

Grammar is Satan's plaything.

Rapax Pringer

w... what.

So now proper grammar is satanic?

8/13/2010 3:23:18 PM


It's called the rules of the printed or written language. If you don't use them you're doing it wrong. I capitalize all titles and have heard people say you don't capatalize Atheist. I do, if it's wrong it's forgivable, but not following the rules of writting just destroys the flow and to do it for religious reasons is ridiculous and pretentious.

After all, Scholars of the Bible do follow those rules, y'know them, those people who actually know what it says.
