Been listening to this to try and improve writing, speaking skills-If you can get past the somewhat smarmy voice and style, the content is educational- I still can’t get over when I ragged people out on a forum last August or September and got called an “elitist” (!?) for wanting people not to come across as illiterate. I am not talking about speaking the “King’s English” or posting as if one was in Elizabethan England. I’m talking about not sounding as if one just “excaped from a ilitrate expresso bar (n grill) ” . Because there aren’t all kinds of resources out in off-line land, it is vital we at least make an effort to not look ridiculous.
I must have got someone there worried about ‘raising the tone” and the WN image improving but it is going to happen even if not overnight. If you want to be legit, you have to act legit, and sometimes form actually follows thought and isn’t fake or illusory. I have at least four things in my arsenal against the nay-sayers and name-callers and ZOG who want us to look like inbred , illiterate trash- I’m creative, willing to work hard, I don’t give up easily, and while I am not a mensa member, neither am I a mental nite-light.
