      seriously, do you have nothing better to do than prowl these lists looking for opportunities to be an elitist prick?
      who's making you reply to anything? just don't fucking bother, because i'm sure the majority of your posts are a waste of fucking time anyway. like posting a link for a google search for me the other day. what is that all about? aside from the inferiority complex shit that you obviously need to quell, i can't really see the point

      it's because when you type in uppercase, you're shouting. besides, calling your stuff urgent doesn't come across on a mailing list, it seems pushy.
      just that you know, i'm sure it's not personal, it's a bit of mail list habit and this list is a bit sensitive on that. nice and helpfull bunch otherwise though, you should check the soundonsound list ; )

      Nah. At best moderately amusing. Occasionally.
      Remember: heaven is having a British wit, a French cook, a German engineer, and an Italian lover. Hell is when you rely on Germany for your comedy (although, yes, if you know where to look, you can find perfectly decent cooking in England, humor in Germany, engineering in Italy, and a red hot lover anywhere except Pennsylvania).

      Peter is referencing a great Eurocentric joke that I know a slightly different variation of (and, since it spreads a wider career net and includes another country, spreads the love even further):
      In Heaven, the Police are British, the Mechanics are German, the Chefs are French, the Lovers are Italian, and organization is provided by the Swiss.
      In Hell, the Police are German, the Mechanics are French, the Chefs are British, the Lovers are Swiss, and organization provided by the Italians.
      There's also an American variation in which certain American regional traits replace the nation states. I suspect this joke became necessary because some American was sufficiently incensed by Americans not getting any of the plum jobs that he/she felt it necessary to construct a version where Heaven (and Hell, since the joke requires it) was run entirely by Americans.
      I'm not sure that that bit's funny.

      Ignoring dumb jokes is a requirement for Max, it should go into the docs.
      I believe there is a social aspect about this: In any community who's context is mastering a certain skill there are jokes about the novices... Its part of a natural selection process, if you really want to be part of that community, you'll happily laugh about them until you start to make your own jokes...

      Thinking about it, I must admit that I have mostly seen this in strongly male dominated communities, most often linked to a strong hostility against women entering the domain.

      Interesting point. Reminds me of a number of observations made in feminist studies about man/woman relations and differences between behaviours in different gender-dominated groups.
      You're probably right, Trond, but making the observation is most likely, in the first instance, to generate more essentially hostile responses from the wannabe alpha-males.

      I'm confused, why would anyone be defending this post? All caps and irrational as well as hard to understand? And yet we find people defending the right for beginners to post this sort of nonsense. I am completely shocked, yet again :/ Chicken, you need to learn how to ask questions. Acting like a whiny victim of circumstance and demanding people help you is no way to get what you want.
      To everyone that defended this post, please try to not be so harsh on the people that just want a legible, easy to comprehend, well thought out question. Just the fact that such a post could cause a flame war based on its nature is a good example thats its not formatted in a way conductive to productivity.
    • Jun 11 2006 | 8:09 pm
      You know I took another look at Chikens post, I do not think he sounded like a whiny victim. What part was demanding? Was it "REALLY URGENT ... MASSIVE PROJECT DEADLINE .... ", perhaps it is the caps that makes things sound demanding. All this caps stuff is nonsense to me.
      Granted his english is not the best but you should keep in mind that the Max community is global and that there are those out there whose English is not as good as yours. Should he take more English classes then? Man, you have some nerve. Up to this point I think everyone was taking it with a grain of salt, even Chicken. But your post just exemplifies how this insensitive attitude creates a unfriendly environment for new users.

      yes, all this whining about newbees is more annoying than the n00bs questions by far.

I don't believe anyone really minds answering a question whichs seems to easy for them ???? if so, why waste time being sazzy, instead of just not answering ?
      If someone slaps a bad joke in my face i woulden't care the least.... someone will answer the question proper sooner or later anyway. ;)

      You could tell from the kind of jokes, I am sure in female dominated communities there are a lot of jokes whith a strong hostility against men entering the domain as well. In mixed communities you might find a difference regarding the opposite gender... I consider the Max community a mixed one, I'd like to see more women participate...

      For that matter, not even in OED.
      The problem is that Brits can't spell their own language.

      Well for starters nothing in this thread is URGENT. An example of overly emotional usage. Like when I hear a student say they were "devastated" by the grade they received when it was a B.
      But most of the time language gaffs are just funny. For example a local company called "Dun Rite Construction."
      A few years ago on the same newscast the president of American Airlines was speaking about an impending strike. He said that "this is the worst time for a strike given the airline's already poor economic outlook. We're not sure we can keep this airline afloat." And Ohio senator Howard Metzenbaum outside the senate chambers after passage of the Brady gun control law. "Going in we didn't think we had the votes but we had to take a short at it." Or one of my colleagues bringing up a touchy issue at a faculty meeting: "Now, I don't want to open a barrel of monkeys ..." so I guess a good party could be "more fun than a can of worms."
      In the American culture export category is the t-shirt I saw in Taiwan. It had Babe Ruth playing for the Mets.
      Dictionary sure but how about an encyclopedia?

      As an interesting side note, there are multiple groups advocating a complete revision of spelling, most notably the simplified spelling society.
      Though we tend to think of spelling as something quite fixed, according to some research, it's deceptively malleable, with most people able to get used to reading new spellings within (IIRC) 5-6 hours. Writing took a little longer, but the standardization of rules greatly aided the process. I actually think that the different spellings are interesting, as they clue you into people's origins. Perhaps we should have more spelling dialects?

      As anyone who has followed the debate on _Rechtschreibreform_ in German-speaking Central Europe can verify, 5-6 *years* seems too short a time for people to get used to new spellings. Decades is perhaps the more appropriate time unit.
      As I recall, Denmark (and perhaps some other countries) instituted spelling reforms within living memory. Anyone got stories to tell?

      Sorry, forgot to disagree with Peter:
      "But the Oxford Unitversity Press, the Cambridge University Press, The Times and American usage ... carry authority enough to outweight superior numbers."
      I couldn't disagree more, and I believe the chaps at the OED would back me up. The OED is continuously updated to reflect commen usage. The evolution of a language must be a bottom up process. The linguistic equivalent of communism's central command economy shares the same inherent weaknesses. Too slow, too few decision makers, arbitrariness etc.

      now some netherlands newspapers have started their own spelling. it's a pity, because it may destroy the union of language between the netherlands and flanders.
      what's so difficult about spelling anyway? an occasional error isn't such a disaster.
      though it is strange how bad people from the UK spell their language, some english friends of mine told me their educational system is pretty bad. i for one really like english spelling, the grammar's already dead easy and it gives it such a nice charm.

      It's not my native language, but when I write in German nouns are capitalized, as has been standard usage since long before the spelling reform of 1901.
      I've not noticed a decline in declination in standard German. Aside from the question about whether 'wegen' (because) takes genitive or dative, Germans are pretty uniform in their usage. However, many regional dialects are sloppy about both case and gender.
      There's a cute book called _Der Dativ ist dem Genitiv sein Tod_ which has raised awareness on grammatical issues in German-speaking Central Europe much the way Lynne Truss made punctuation a popular sport in anglophone areas.
      Thanks for the comments on Dutch spelling.

      If you force any kind of spelling, by defining some correct and some faulty, nobody will get ever used to it, its too much stress and no fun. My son is happily misspelling in internet chat rooms which seems to create completely new ways of communication. No problem for him, but probably intentionally a problem for the parents.

      I never got used to her spelling art, and I am sure I spent more than 5-6 hours on reading her posts... ;-)

      i assume that this fad for ditching capital letters started outside germany, but it has caught on here to the extent that when putting together text for album covers and websites et al, one of the first considerations is, do we use only lower case or mixed letters ?
      i imagine chicken's latest album WENT FOR A THIRD OPTION :-)
      i've already done a deal whereby i get my compatriots back home to drive on the right like everybody else (nearly) in return for the germans dropping h and calling it b like everybody else. maybe they could throw in lower case nouns as a sign of good faith ?

      Yes Roman, look at what your little remark started. It is all your fault. ;)

      Its obviously on its way into the Guiness book of records... Just don't forget to reply to it... (It was still (till now) not labeled [OT] ;-))))) But my missspell is dedicated to the "less than ten posts" memebers of the list...

      I urgently want it the other way round, the rest of the roman letter world needs to give a sign of good faith (Urgently so to Speak)... (I could help out with an abhaXion to automate the misspelling and keep this urgent Thread further ontopic...)
