Well, Hony, dude, ma'am -- i'm so sorry, i don't think i intended to say that that all. I think i only wrote about a balance
between 'serious' stuff and witty stuff, just as most people who reacted to BD's initial post here.
Now, what's wrong with that? Apart from the fact that we apparantly define 'balance' in a different way. Big deal.
So, it's not about 'vile language', not about being 'bullied by an idiot' (thank you! and i start to wonder who's bullying who), nor about paranoia, Mark.
As for "college education", once again, since i don't have a clue about the American education system, i don't know what that is supposed to mean. I only now gathered that it seems to cost an awful lot of money and that not everybody is able to pay the fee, which makes me wonder about the US educational system, but that's another issue, i guess.
I don't think i even remotedly wanted to imply that anybody who doesn't have a US college degree (whatever that is) is too stupid for words.
Over here, a 'college' is a type of secundary school (between 12-18 years), a type of school most of my (older) relatives didn't even start
. Who would i be to call them
If i'm not wrong, there is an English expression about 'all kind of fools' and 'make this message board go round', or something like that.
Well, i'm so sorry, but i'm the serious fool, the language annex linguistics bigot, who does like both wit and serieux. Up to you to decide which kind of fool you are.
