Here’s the thing. I’m all about getting on a soapbox and spewing any kind of horseshit you can think of. Anyone who knows me, or has read any of my dumb-ass articles on this site and others knows that for a fact. But if you’re going to spout off, you had better make damn sure you’re not going to come out looking like a jackass in the end.
The Internet is stuffed to the gills with comment sites and personal opinion submission sections, and I think that’s great. I’ve even been known to get on a real tirade in more than one of those forums, boy, I’ll tell you what!
But in these cases, spell check is your best friend, folks. It’s also a good idea to do a quick check of grammar. A lot of word-processing sites now make this tool available.
Bottom line, there’s nothing worse than some blowhard talking about how “everyone’s an idiot” this, and “you all need to go back to grade school” that, only to find multiple spelling and grammar errors in a post with only two sentences.
It all comes down to the old cliché about people in glass houses. I’ll even do you one better. If, say, you’re really ranting about how no one in your town knows how to wash their cars anymore, you’d better made damn sure some bird hasn’t left a little present on your own car, whilst you were fuming.
‘Cause there’s nothing worse than having to stop mid-tirade, only to realize you’re the worst offender of whatever got-dang beef you started to yell about in the first place.
