They say....

That one of the biggest turn-offs on LiveJournal are people who don't use proper English. I can understand that. But, I admit... I also fall prey to it.

I have my English foibles or more properly my one English f&$k ups.

So, here is today's quote and the conversation that caused it.

After discussing with jnanacandra the complexity of the forms of affect and effect.

jnanacandra: gotta love english
lordandrei: No, I'd say it's more of a contemptuous understanding and forced appreciation. I love Japanese. It follows rules. I respect French. It has anal defenders of it's chaste purity. English?... It's those ruffians playing Chess in the park.
jnanacandra: yep
lordandrei: And that's your quote for the day
jnanacandra: just fix the typos before posting it
lordandrei: Typos there, too?
jnanacandra: an its/it's; and chess should be decapitalized
lordandrei: Ah, misused the first one.
pause
lordandrei: As for Chess. I could mean they are playing soundracks... yeah.. that was it
jnanacandra: heh

So...
