[QUOTE=txwooley;165527]What’s with running off the new guys? When I read Berke Deveci’s original post and the grammar policing that followed I knew that English was not this guys first language. He came on here, into the Cadet section I might add, to ask about school functions. He did not get disrespectful or belligerent until he was attacked for his ill use of English grammar. How well do you speak Turkish? That’s what I thought.
I am honestly appalled that John or Mikey or whomever hasn’t put a stop to the way new guys get treated on here. One day when c.captain and Kennebec Captain and the other ‘old timers’ move on, there won’t be anyone left and the forums will die a slow and painful death because new blood was never allowed to flow and the new guys distance themselves from a forum that does nothing but insult and attack them both personally and professionally.[/QUOTE]
I thought his command of English was just fine. I gave him a smart-alecky reply when he said he was going to outlast some long time poster. If someone is going to leave a message board because he was referred to as a “fart in the breeze” then he needs to grow a thicker skin, I didn’t read the other comments directed at him :rolleyes:
