However, both jesse jackson and al-not-too-sharp-sharpton tend to speak
in such a manner as to mimic heils' use of apostrophes.


Then they have it right.

March to your own drummer, "John", but don't be surprised if someone
laughs at you or points out your mistakes.

Len tires of being wrong and of receiving what he dishes out.

Except that your statement isn't the end of the story. The moron would
be the guy who made the statements on punctuation which you made and, in
the face of facts to the contrary, continued to bray that he's right.

You've worked hard for that title, you
deserve it; wear it with pride!


Your actions and reactions of today ensure that the title is yours.
There's no shame in it, "John." After all, you're anonymous. You can
simply choose another pseudonym if you're embarrassed.

That's fine, hot-ham-and-cheese. Was it the numerous examples of the
proper use of apostrophes--almost all wrong--provided by "John", which
reminded you?


Come to think of it, it was your thread hi-jacking which drew my
attention. I probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise. There's
only so much of your nonsense that I'm going to read, so this one
squabble of the many squabbles that you've gotten yourself into would
likely have been missed.

You remain the smuggest of hams.


You might have forgotten the fellow who suggests that someone who uses
an apostrophe correctly is an imbecile or moron. Now *that's* smug.

Dave K8MN


Or I might have forgotten the fellow who says that people who misspell
words are incapable of leadership. Smug? Youbetcha.

That's interesting. I didn't hijack the thread at all. I corrected
"John's" use of "heils'" in the course of my response. If anyone
hijacked the thread, it was "John." I even created an entirely new
thread on the use of apostrophes.

I probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise.


It was otherwise and you noticed anyway.

only so much of your nonsense that I'm going to read, so this one
squabble of the many squabbles that you've gotten yourself into would

It seems to me that you see pretty much every word I write in this
newsgroup. You're busy trying to read *between* the lines.

You remain the smuggest of hams.

Is a misspelling the same as a typo? Len claims he made a typo when he
misspelled Attila--three different times. Heh.

Smug? Youbetcha.


I think you're mistaking confidence for smugness.
