    Easy guys, remember the moderators check this thread. ;)

    Cfitzarl is saying that the language is native to us in that we speak it from birth, not in that it has originally come from our land.

    Where do I submit this hijack log because someone stole my thread and made it into an English variant issue.

    Yeah, I dont think Howard is going to be able to help you with this one.

    (And Howard I know I did the quote thing you dont like but I couldnt help myself :D )

    Edited by Moderator: Removed quote. There`s no need to quote the post directly above your own, unless you`re only replying to a specific section, in which case you would only quote that section. ;)

    Thanks :D :D :D ! I try to keep things interesting (to the best of my ability ;) ). I would have to say that I like reading everyone's posts and threads here just because that everyone here has a different perspective and ideology of thinking than anyone else :) .

    I agree it is very annoying. Or even those who don't Capitalize or go ALL CAPS LIKE THIS.

    ALL caps is good to emphasize a point. BUT IF THE WHOLE SENTENCE IS CAPS, it gets irritating really fast.

    Unless the whole sentence is being emphasized, such as warnings....


    Haven't seen too many posts posted in all caps yet.

    Actually, shouting (like THIS or this!!!!!!!) is against the forum guidelines.

    Sorry Mict for not posting the correct length :( . But yes, I think that we should be stricter with people who write like that (unless they have a legitimate reason why they speak like that).

    It is less of a problem now than it was a few months ago. No doubt it still happens and will continue, but I become very displeased with the person I see writing like that. General discouragement from all members is the best way to prevent the problem from becoming more widespread.

    Self policing in moderation is better than having a handful of mods trying to fix every problem.

    I know that there was a member who was banned for purposely disobeying TechSpot Rules....one of them being from his use of grammar and speaking. I won't say his name, but let him serve as an example to all of the members here that this can happen to you. Also, that darn FireFox Spellchecker is amazing :unch: !

    One thing that that ticks me off is when people mis spell things like evga or nvidia, even Geforce (Corret way is GeForce). Another thing that disturbes me are undetailed specs.

    There are several ways to spell "evga". eVGA and EVGA, they have two logos. "nvidia" can also be spelled like nVidia, nVIDIA (As there logo), NVIDIA is the corporate way and NVDA is the stock way.

    If I could control it everybody would be as specific as I am:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz
    Biostar TForce 550 SE Motherboard
    Corsair Value Select 1GB (512MB x2) DDR2-667 RAM
    Maxtor Diamond Max 200GB PATA-133 HDD
    eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB...

    Yeah you get the picture many people are more like (Which bugs me):

    AMD Athlon
    Gigabyte 939 Motheboard
    1GB DDR
    Maxtor HDD
    geforce 7600gt

    wow, you're a little insane, or close to it. People mispelling evga, or nvidia, Those are quite minor.

    Honestly, if they don't have detail in their listing of specs, I think they just simply do not know -- and that's okay!

    For example, if someone puts "1GB DDR" in their specs, without the brand/speed/bandwidth/latency, then I'd just assume that they don't know that there are so many aspects to specify a RAM module, and leave it at that.
    People are here to learn, so give them a chance. When they know more and find out what their exact specs are, then I'm sure that they'll list it.

    However, I don't think many people know the codename of their CPU core , so I think that part would be unnecessary.

    A very had part of being a computer genius is being patient to those who are not as computer-savvy as yourself. Have you seen this?:

    and this is just another version, (essentially the same)

    It's a comedic way of expressing how patience is an asset for computer specialists.
