Default Some Non-Writing Ass Motherfuckers

Do you judge people by their ability to communicate in writing?

I know I do.

IMO, there's a wealth of information that can be gathered about a person simply by paying attention to how and what they write.

You might be able to surmise where they grew up. Perhaps discerning that English could be a second language (nothing wrong with that, of course). You might be able to guess what their level of education might be. You'd certainly be able to conclude whether or not they actually read.

I'm not saying you've got to be an Ernest Fucking Hemingway, but being able to simply text or PM back and forth in an intelligent manner is worth an assload of coolpoints. Well, in my book, at least. Add another heaping of coolpoints if you're witty and engaging enough to elicit a chuckle. I personally look forward to going back and forth with those types.

Hmmm...I think I'd be sort of dismissive of someone who couldn't communicate effectively via writing. Damn. Is that bad?

YES!! ALL THE TIME! I actually cringe at some of my posts from back in the day. I can't believe I actually wrote like that, but hey..teenage years I guess.

I can't tell where you grew up but I can definitely tell where you're stayin' at. LOL.

As for your second sentence, I wouldn't say that's exactly a fair argument, as some people that did not go on to higher education can still hold an intelligent conversation..just sayin'.

Geeeee, I wonder who that could be .. LOL

Coolpoints, for sure. But at the same time I don't hold them accountable for their grammar if we're just texting or PMing. I think it would depend on the level of the conversation.

Not at all, cuz I do the same.

How does that saying go?: It's not where you're from, it's where you're at.

For sure. Education doesn't necessarily have to be formal. One can self-educate by reading and by being curious enough to learn about things that are interesting.

Funny, I was watching this interview with Noam Chomsky and he said that during the 20s and 30s (1900s ) formal education was so far out of reach for common people that they had to educate themselves. Learned people would devote their time after work hours to help these folks learn about whatever. Chomsky said the result was average working people who had not finished the 8th grade, but they were just as "educated" as anyone he knew at Harvard.

For sure. Substance and content is what's important here. We're not writing papers. #APAformat

I only judge their writing if they're being an ass. LOL.

Overall, I don't really care.

I'm a bit guilty of that as well.

Although, I do play around a lot, once I'm comfortable with the individual and they get to see all my "styles" of communicating. Hood, country, goofy, I've even been told that my vocabulary was reminiscent of a 100 year old person. Haha.

Sometimes, I don't have to be dismissive of an individual, with little to no ability hold a decent convo, cuz, once we start communicating, they get turned off by my smartikinz. And, that's fine by me. Keeping me from feeling like a snob.

Yes to all the above. I find myself particularly annoyed when people use words incorrectly or don't conjugate verbs properly. But I just seethe to myself and let it go. People (especially on Soy ) don't like a nitpick.

Hi, Sweet Pea!!

You know what else chaps my hide? No, punctuation usin folks. They'll type out a freakin novel of a text with zero punctuation, and I'm left to decipher where a sentence ends and begins.

The short form writing is the only thing that annoys me.

If I am not paying you to write, I don't hardly care how you do it, as long as I understand it enough.

My younger brother will post on facebook in texting short form and I can not just read it, I generally skip whatever he says. From time to time I will post this clip. My younger nephews even laugh at him.

IMO simple written communication is a little window that allows you to see how someone ticks. Expressing one's self effectively is more what I'm zeroing on. Especially when interacting on a forum like Soy where, for many of us, we see what we write long before we ever speak to one another.

If you were a movie, your writing would be the trailer. Something philosophically corny like that.
