Nobby. I'm quite sure every single person reading this thread understood exactly what she was saying. Except you. I'm not even sure what you think you're arguing about here...

Gonna continue my original line before the silly derail:

Queen Alixana wrote:
Obama is a great candidate who I believe has a unifying message, and good ideas.


Why do you think he's a great candidate?

Why do you believe he has a unifying message? (ie: what specifically does his message say that seems "unifying"?).

What good ideas does he have?

It's quite possible to decipher what someone is trying to say whilst acknowledging their inability to communicate it coherently.

Some of us do so by using acknowledged English rather than demotic aphorisms, cartoon-speak or lazy slang.

Call it 'smug'. It will help you deal with it.

Oh, and Alixana, at 2am (I started at 6:15am yesterday), I'm a tad sleepy too, but I can still command basic grammatical coherence, cupcake.

Congratulations, I suppose this makes you a far superior person than myself.

However, it's connotation, by the way. Just saying, since we're on the subject of "grammatical coherence". I was willing to overlook that for a while, though.

With that said, my use of "incredible", while perhaps not the best choice of words to convey my ideas (I should have simply said "extraordinary" and have saved myself this trouble); it was certainly not incorrect, especially to the point that it somehow invalidates my ideas. That's pretty much the end of it, as far as I'm concerned.

Than 'me', sweetie, or perchance "than I". You use 'myself' like many fUcktards use 'whom'. Look up 'object' & 'subject'. If time allows, check out the nominative, dative & accusative moods.

Stay clear of the subjunctive.

Yes. But to call people idiots for using words incorrectly on an internet forum when it is abundantly clear what they meant is pointless snobbery.

To do it when their use of the word was correct is ignorant snobbery.


I know a lot of people in the US who insist that it's improper to ever eat any food with the fork in the left hand, even to the point of requiring one to switch knife and fork around when eating meat. What would you think of such a person if he called you names for doing it differently? That's basically the way you're looking right now Nobby...

I see your point, but, (alas), you are an cUnt, while I am a dandy highwayman that plucks the opening bloom of your women and thumbs his nose at you Sirrah.

Is butthurtism a word, now? Smiley: wink

Also, I ignored gbaji for the most part. It's not because I do not know how to argue on Obama's behalf, as I extensively researched the candidates and the issues before I came to a decision. I don't feel I have to defend my stance at this time, especially when I must say I felt that he was just trying to pick a fight. Smiley: sly

Hah! It's election season. You declare your undying affection for a specific candidate on this forum and then think someone might just pick a fight over it!?

That's crazy talk! ;)

Well, I have read enough of the arguments that have transpired here to know I would not want to get in that sort of debate with gbaji; most definitely not this evening when I have a lot of work to do.

Save yourself the trouble anyway.

You can just flip on a Will & Grace rerun and watch them sling "*** people are flamboyant" jokes. It's the same level of intellectual satisfaction you'd get from said debate.

There's no requirement for you to debate this with me. All I ask is that you please please please ask these questions of yourself before throwing your support behind any candidate. Voting is not just a right, it's a responsibility...

Don't worry gbaji, I made an educated decision before casting my vote. :) I'll continue to keep track of the candidates as the election progresses, and make changes in my decision if the situation warrants it. Thanks for your concern, though.

Yes. Why exactly would that surprise you? His positions and past actions fit very well with my own views. It's not like Romney supporters were passing out from his dreaminess or something...


My concern is that it seems as though Obama supporters as a group tend to support him because of who he is and not his actual platform. He is more like a charismatic messiah figure to them, and less a politician with real positions on real issues. So yeah. I'm going to point this out when it's appropriate to do so.

You lost him there. Try rephrasing it like this:

"I might possibly maybe consider, in the end, voting for a candidate based on the obvious actual meaning of their spoken words, facial expressions, and deodorant choice as dictated to me by right wing radio show hosts, possibly as everyone knows, heh, folks, come on, we all know it, even Clinton says so."
