    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."

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

    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.

    hey, he did say 'exceptional' grammar.

    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?
