1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm wearing a tan Van Heusen dress shirt which is 20" neck and 36" sleeve I got a Belks, and wearing a Olive Puritan necktie which I got at Wal-Mart.
    This guy can't be serious.

    Yes, it is rather frightening as another member channeled earlier.
    yeah, this guy looks like a rest area rapist. .luc
    Now now play nice here....

    That's what I am sayin'. And I was scolded for asking if he was serious a couple of weeks ago.

    He asks odd questions with awkward English syntax, and grammar. Yet from a presumable notion he seems to be a native of the US?

    Who is Spencer Karter. Now... Before you panic...The first person is NOT Spencer Karter... Thats Doc Bresch [​IMG] Scroll down for what I believe was the first post from SK. If you care to do some more research on this do a search with Member name DoughboySC and older than this month. Topic has been beaten to death already, and IP matched SC so lets try and be a little more tolerant for those that dont look like we do.

    Hmmm, I vaguely remember him posting before but I missed the thread with the big controversy about whether or not he was legit. Â I agree with Mike C. and others that just because his IP matches South Carolina does not mean that he is who he claims to be. Â Nevertheless, on the off chance that he really is a young man with autism, I will refrain from joking about or otherwise responding to his posts.

    I actually think Spencer is legit. In fact, I'd bet on it. I do think we should refrain from casting aspersions on his posts therefore, but he has come to this board for advice and for a place to talk. I for one will not refrain from responding to his posts. I will respond to them like I would respond to any other member's posts.

    A belated welcome aboard, Spencer.

    I made some nasty remarks to him because he first appeared the day after the NYT article ran. I was sure, like alot of people, that he was just messing with us. I thought he was some kid in a dorm room playing a joke on our forum. Right now, I honestly believe he is who he says he is. I felt pretty stupid about the whole thing.

    Dude, you exhibit many syntactic peculiarities in *your* posts (including in the one above[​IMG] but no one calls you on it. So let's all just leave the man be, okay?

    Quibbling over grammar seems to be a knee-jerk reaction for novices to Internet fora. It is also commonly employed in unhealthy arguments when one can't think of another way to be cruel or offensive. [​IMG]

    It's even worse on sports sites. I hang out on some Cubs forums and it kills me when fans rip on a sports writer for writing an "artical" they disagree with and as "there" way of trashing the "artical" they point out said sports writer uses poor "grammer."

    I hang around some sports sites too, and the verdict is in. Jocks is dumbs.

    Having been taught English grammar, etc. from Thomas Mann novels, and English Rococo/Regency texts. Although the latter is presumably more appropriate than the former. Also I read Joseph Conrad novellas fairly frequently younger.

    think about it.

    James Joyce had exceptional grammar.

    And to an extent, Italo Svevo.

    One needs to know the rules first, and then henceforth break them.

    Especially considering that the former referred to Thomas Mann, I'd say that this is self evident.

    Even if it was Jane Austen?
