    The story about getting a resume written in crayon last week is true. We also got one written in "chat speak". The person had a college degress from a pretty respected college. Scary....very scary

    I do not want to de-rail this thread anymore, but I promise if anyone of any age submits a resume in crayon or not using full words people are going to look at it and laugh.

    That said, your still in school (I assume high school). Enjoy it while you can! cause lord knows it flys by

    The way people talk in the last 5 years IS a problem. Even if you learn the proper way to write and speak formally in English class, it is all for null if the theory isn't reinforced in practice...

    And for the record, the kid gets a pass from me. Some people are just genetically incapable of using punctuation and capital letters.

    It's kinda like how Peck is genetically incapable of using the word "dominant."

    Looking like the minority again, but at first I wanted to keep Rush, but after watching tape of him in the scrimmages he just hasn't shown me enough, I think people forget that he has had two full seasons in the NBA already not to mention that he went all 4 yrs at KS I believe and he is still playing below a lot of peoples expectations.

    At this point I really wouldn't mind if we traded him... officially getting of the Brush has tons of potential we just have to wait train, my ticket has officially expired....

    Hopefully he taps into his potential and stays with the team but as of now I just can't see it anymore.

    Your second point is a great one. Within our means, who would the Pacers want on the Bobcats roster? Dampier. He is desirable simply because we can void the contract without penalty. I would add Diaw to the list. Diaw has one season left on his current contract. He also has a defensive skill set that is to be desired. Though he may be a rich man's James Posey (that is not to say that Posey's contract is 'cheap').

    Even though I find myself wanting to avoid the issue, I have to add my two cents. I'm twenty-five years old, and I have had nearly seven complete years in the "adult world" now. What I can tell you about my experience is this: "We don't devote enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks."

    Cheers.

    So, what was this thread about?
    This thread is about pacer4ever's grammar, as is any other thread he posts in.

    This getting on him (pacers4ever) for his English is getting rather tired at this point.

    Hicks, and a couple of others (including me) made a sincere effort once. He's done better at times since then, yet he also made it clear he won't be perfect. Get over it or ignore him. Hell, I'm getting annoyed at every time he posts someone does it. You're beating a dead ****ing horse to oblivion. At this rate posts complaining about his English will surpass "Fire OB" posts soon. Give it a damn rest.

    ya know I'd hate to be the guy who actually has trouble spelling and/or is not very educated posting here for the first time..lol

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    If I didn't find his thoughts worthwhile, I wouldn't complain.

    I also could deal with one of misspellings, shorthand, or lack of punctuation. All of them together make it harder to read and sometimes change the meaning. On a forum, ASSUMING someone's meaning can lead to arguments, so clarity is vital.

    Deep down, I also kind of resent the idea that anyone's thoughts are so golden and immediate and deserving of quick posting that the poster is not required to do any work to make him/herself understood, whereas I am required to do all the work not just to translate but to translate correctly. That just seems rude, really.

    There's a place for shorthand - one-on-one immediate communication can handle it because you can ask for clarity or laugh it off. Group written discussion is difficult to keep clear at the best of times. Good language skills aren't some class or age war against the underprivileged, they are a key to being able to communicate well. And if communication isn't the point of this, what is?

    Peck would never use the word "dominant". He would much rather use the word "revolutionize"... as in "revolutionize the power forward position".

    Also keep in mind that at age 17, some of this about getting attention.

    I think this young man has realized that he can get away with the language he is while overtaking threads by changing them into discussions about himself. An attention seeking high schooler's dream, right?

    No. It's only an issue because we make it one.

    Omg! I came here to read about PACERS OPEN TO TRADING A WING. Instead I got MEMBERS OPEN TO BASHING ON A TEEN'S GRAMMAR! That's sad like ninety percent of this is two sides either bashing, trying to explain, or defending his way of typing. We are all old enough and hopefully maturing enough to let things go. We're supposed to be talking about the pacers here. Let's cntinue on that path....THANK YOU!

    I truly don't want Dahntay to be "that guy" unless we get someone of equal potential or value in return.

    Dahntay has potential? Could have fooled me.

    He has the potential to make me want to gouge my eyes out on offense I guess.

    You know, this may be a precursor to a serious philosophical and practical battle in our culture ten or twenty years from now.

    It all depends on if texting continues to be very dominant (sorry Peck) in the years to come. (For instance, voice recognition could take some steam out of it.) But if it does, then we may see a battle between what is correct grammar. I mean, we don't use Shakespearian English any more, and those guys told Chaucer to take a hike.

    So who knows?
