In healthcare I notice this a lot. It isn't the right thing to do.

People I call "Nasty Nice", they try to pretend that they are being nice when in fact they really mean the total opposite.

Or people who think I am stupid because I am unemployed. As soon as my health and the economy get better I want to get back to work.

Ha ha.......I think they are mostly safe, you just need to hit them so the paint splatters all over them. Purple is nice. The police can identify them by the paint splotches.

lol, no problem. it's just my opinion. people can speak or write how they choose. but i'd like to think that it matters that the person you are speaking "to" receives your intended message well. when you speak "at" someone, it implies a disconnect in intentions. it is more about what you have to say rather than the communication at hand.

@ bt it's just a form of Internet shorthand much like IMO or YMMV or the other abbreviations.

The @ notation is particularly useful when you are replying to two or more previous posts and want to make it clear which posts you are replying to but at the same time are too lazy to go through all the extra motions to make a multi-quote reply, particularly if you are like me and edit down the quotes to the bare essentials.


Okay, another thing that annoys me. Somebody posts some word and then they add (sp?) behind it. It's like an admission, "okay I know my spelling sucks and I know this word is spelled wrong but I'm too lazy to look it up on the Internet and get the word right, even though I'm already on a computer and on the Internet and it would take me 20 seconds to get the spelling correct."

you see how that works, greg? you spoke at me, and i took it that way. you merely wanted to make your statement regardless of how you'd think i would take it.

if you wanted to actually converse about it, really wanting me to understand you, you would have spoken "to" me.

pretty simple, huh?

hmm, what does ymmv mean?

your move, mother vucker? lol. just kidding.

I dislike quotes that have been trimmed, but there were no ellipses (the three dots) to indicate where stuff has been removed.

i often use ellipses, maybe improperly, when implying there's a joke or continued thought to follow.
