Your buddy seneca wrote: his lapdogs is

You're an unsavory name dropper, 3 ta.

  So what? It may have been a typo.  Don't raise a stink about this.  Your best friend robert, who is a la-di-da    braggart,  once boasted about his exceptional writing skills here, not seneca.

Then, that is Robert's typo too. You intentionally pick at him, and try to pick up a fight with him.

Madam Voice_cd is mad with you for ruining her thread. You had better scoot.

You need to counsel seneca to go back to grammar to school for English grammar, please.

  Are you suggesting your Chinese teachers told you it's acceptable to write I ain't poor when working on an English essay? methinks that it  would be wrong to write like this, according to one article published by The Wall Street Journal, in which the author finds that Fortune 500 companies demand that a prospective employee write like someone who is educated. Which means such companies put stock in formal English writing.

  It's considered bad form for job-seekers hoping to join such behemoths to talk like lowbrows.

Aha! You got caught in red hand. It's "Methinks", but not "methinks". My Chinese teachers outbeat your English teachers. O, la, la.

  All what I did was point out one of your best friend robert's mistakes. I wasn't trying to pick a fight with him. What's the point of taking the mickey out of me like this?

  Are you female? Forget it. One wouldn't want to spar with  a girl like you.

1. You need to add quotation mark for "I ain't poor".
2. You need to capitalise "methinks".
3. You need to italise "The Wall Street Journal" or use quotation mark for the name of the journal.
4. "Which" is definitely a grammatical solecism. I advise you to use "That means".


You don't need to invite Paul, Dick or Herry to here. I can help you for free, but I wouldn't like be a grammar N-A-Z-I.


This is a post but not an easy or thesis. The more educated people, the more respectful and modest they are.


Please go easy on you and other people, and get a life, bub!
