I thought this was a help forum. Plainly it`s meant for clever dicks to show us all just how clever they are.
If you don`t like the question - don`t post!

Originally posted by adjeI apologise for causing you offense, but you clearly misread the context of my remark. It was intended to be a facetious observation on what this forum is becoming thanks to the efforts of a few people that I won't name here. (They know who they are.) It was a mocking statement hurled in the direction of those that were initially doing the mocking. Turning the mockers into the mockees, if you will. Again, sorry if you misunderstood.

This is a chess site, not a site about english grammar and vocabulary.
Nowhere in the ToS it says that my native language should be English, or that I should be able to write perfect English and understand all the abbreviations.
It doesn't hurt to show some consideration about language misunderstandings.
Originally posted by Natural ScienceApparently I did. Sorry about that. Now that I read it again, it seems obvious.
