Hilarious example of Jimbo demonstrating shitheadedness.

http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/heres-your-corr...ipedia-founder/

QUOTE
The founder of Wikipedia, the online “encyclopedia” that has damaged reputations with reckless, irresponsible and defamatory charges, has demanded of WND a correction to a column which characterized him as making a “fortune” in pornography before starting the company.


Among the comments is one from someone called Jeff Peters.
QUOTE
As someone who once wrote some of the few quality that existed and fought against much of the plagiarism, defamation, and rampant pornography on the site, I always appreciate it when people are willing to put up the honest truth.

He's clearly someone who can't ruddy write a grammatical sentence! I'd guess he's someone who's butthurt after being thrown off the site.

You are an idiot. I went back and edited the sentence and trimmed too much. You quoted the unedited version but not the corrected one because you are a moron.

You are also a hypocrite: "Hilarious example of Jimbo demonstrating shitheadedness."

You mean "This is a hilarious example of Jimbo demonstrating shitheadedness." See, there are these things called "verbs," and they are necessary. Don't attack others for something you failed doing in a far worse manner.

You're this illiterate? confused.gif But you're shitheaded as usual. I quoted what was there; there was nothing else to quote.

First, it wasn't worse than what you did. Second, according to you I'm some illiterate wog from Nigeria so I don't know any better and it's not my fault. You are some expert on the United Kingdom so you do know better.

WND is a glorified blog, written for and by racists, birthers, and tea party assholes.

i.e. who cares?

I left out a word that obviously belonged there and quickly corrected it. You don't know better than to throw around sentence fragments. You are a pathetic troll. Next, you will start pretending that you are British.



Tarc

Anyone can dismiss any online media as a glorified blog. But we are in a world of blogs, and a forum is no better than a blog. With people like the troll above, we are no better than how you view the WND.

You're a ruddy liar. It was like that certainly for several hours, and I bet you only corrected it when you saw my comment and realised that you'd made a jackass of yourself yet again.

I don't have to. I live here. Fortunately, you can't verify that because they'd never let you into the country.

So, now we've finished that nonsense, do you have anything intelligent to say about the subject of the thread?

You are an egotistical little faux Brit, aren't you. It was like that "certainly"? You mean it was certainly like that? Because your own grammar problems creates linguistic uncertainty that allows for the exactly opposite concept than that which you would want to argue.

You are a petty troll who thinks that your mistakes will become invisible through faking British citizenship.

Hey, is English your first language? Because it's ruddy clear what I mean. "It was like that" at some point - not to be denied. I don't know how long it was like that, but "certainly for several hours" because I saw the same stupid error at two times some hours apart. You don't deny that you only corrected it after seeing my post.

Now, do you have anything to say about the thread topic? If not, go and take a ruddy course in English and let the serious contributors here discuss the topic.

Actually, we already established that it is not yours. Your consistent grammar mistakes are those consistent from a colonial nation and it is likely that your bad understanding of the UK comes from the same problem. Are you from India? It would make sense.


When I make a mistake, it is a mistake. When you have glaring errors, it is because you are ignorant of the English language. Great writers always have the possibility of a typo or leaving words out. However, you are just a colonial gibber jabber who wont ever know better.

Which bad understanding? confused.gif

Typical shithead remark. As you don't know but anyone with any knowledge of the UK does, India has been independent since 1947.

Translation into English: "When I, the great and marvellous Ottava, make one of my frequent balls-ups, you are not allowed to mention it. If I, in my inscrutable ignorance, wrongly think that you have made a small slip, I can make nasty racist comments."
QUOTE

Since when were you a great writer? confused.gif
QUOTE

However, you are just a colonial gibber jabber who wont ever know better.

And you are a total Yankee fuckwit, with his head stuck up his arse, who doesn't even know the difference between "wont" and "won't".

Now if you've got nothing to say about the important topic of this thread, shut up and let mature, sensible people like The Joy and Viridae contribute. Right now, you're scaring them off.


PS: Even by your twisted shithead logic, I can't be a ruddy gibber jabber since that's a nonsense language, and I'm a person.

And there is the proof.

I stated your failed grasp at both the English language and English history represents that you are most likely from one of the British colonies. You don't dispute it but show knowledge about it.

Fun fun fun.

Shouldn't you be spending more time at your call center instead of harassing people online?

Come, come, Ottava, that's a bit much even for you. You don't have to be an Indian to know when India became independent; anyone who knows anything about the United Kingdom knows that.

The evidence you come from India is your lack of proper grammar, using words like "ruddy" that real Brits don't use, and your logon times.

Also, just because one account has been around for a longer time does not mean they have the same puppet master. It is kinda stupid that you would even attempt to make such a claim, especially when you pretend to be a master in socking.

If you two are different, put up your Wikipedia accounts and real names. Until then, you shall go by Apu.

Firstly, my grammar is better than yours, but under your ruddy rules you're allowed to make mistakes because you're a great writer. Secondly, you know shit about the UK and are deliberately trying to be insulting by using the word Brit which even Tarc admits is offensive. Thirdly, my login times are completely incompatible with Indian time, but of course you've never bothered to check that.

Do you mean "First, my grammar is better than your grammar, but, under your ruddy rules, you're allowed to make mistakes, because you are a great writer"?

By the way, "ruddy" is not a common Brit expression. This has been pointed out by quite a few people. I've spent many years with Malleus and heard all of the standard vulgar expressions. Ruddy is not there. Only someone from India would make such a basic mistake.


QUOTE

Only someone from India could have missed the obvious sarcasm found in my repeating your claim. The sentence that followed that statement makes my point clear.

Ugh. dry.gif

"Ruddy" is an intensive used in British English in replace of "damn," "bloody," and similar euphemisms.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ruddy

Ruddy (T-H-L-K-D)

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ruddy

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ruddy

Otherwise, it means "blushing" or "sanguine."

Examples:

"Ottava was ruddy in the face at being proved he was wrong."

"Some have called Ottava a 'ruddy old fool' for his shenanigans."

But not by Brits. It is the equivalent of saying "radical" and claiming it is still used by Americans.

Only in a place like India would someone think that the word is still in fashion. Our verified British people like Malleus who cuss quite often never resort to such terms for a reason.
