    But more generally, what I'm protesting is making the link between p4e's choice to write as he does and a putative lack of intelligence or education. It's just not there. Verbal facility is unrelated to how and when one deploys a variant dialect; this has been proven over and over and over. [Zadie Smith--an eloquent SWE writer--has written about her own speaking cockney at home.)

    And honestly, it's a jackass-ish link to make. Should we assume everyone who speaks differently than us is stupid??
