Tends to have warped sense of humor

Yes, defiantly.

I have seen so many people write 'defiantly' when they mean 'definitely' that I automatically read 'defiantly' as 'definitely' now. Isn't it annoying when frequent spelling mistakes ruin a perfectly good word?

I would reply to this with "Its so true!" except I know how many forumites would want to stab me for that.  However, I've seen the its/it's and the their/they're/there and the to/too/two confusions so often that sometimes I catch myself making them.

I got this link from the fora and have shared it.

Unfortunately, I think conjugate gives good advice.

That your bigotry is predictable makes you all the more odious.

Your opinions are welcome, of course, unless they suck, in which case the Fora will reward you with snark, if all goes well.

I lean towards agreeing with you, but you don't lend your position any credibility by choosing name calling over responding to the substance of a post.

You think that's name-calling? Psssht. That's nothing.

I know.  Is it too soon to fire up the academic darwinism bus on this guy?  After all, one of his threads is basically the definition of moron.

So, help my "friend" who's in an impossible and unbelievable situation...

and

Give me the supply and demand numbers for doctorates in all known fields... [most of which have been discussed on the forums before and also on CHE proper]

Such lovely threads. I think I should go start a silly one now...

PS. ptarmigan, this one wasn't a one-liner.
