    He(?) wasn't rude and he(?) isn't an idiot. He's(?) just a dedicated scholar looking out for his fellow peers. He is a gift.

    Unfortunately his(?) passion for the English language makes him(?) appear to be rude and appear to be an idiot.

    His dedication is a curse. Instead of bullying him with our e-gangster mentality (as he will most likely never see us and vice versa), we should embrace him and realize that he is imperfect for trying to see perfection where none exists, the internet.

    To SterlingTFX: I finally understood what you meant by the irony of it all. Are you saying it's ironic that he is posting a list of how to not look like a noob yet he fails because he spells wrong, giving the impression that he is a noob after all?

    Dude, I totally DID miss your point. It's pretty ironic that I followed another path of irony (the pre-med major and its inferred correlation to decent spelling). Instead of looking cool, I am now the noob (newb?) for seeing the incorrect translation of irony.

    Forgive me.

    Cheers.

    I'm a little amused. I didn't think this would go on for this long. With that said, I got what I deserved so that's cool.

    @ Fusion, either of those paths of irony work so I'm glad you got them. They're what I found amusing.

    I only mention the misspelling issue because it sucks when I'm grading papers and can't give full marks to one because it has a grip of minor errors.

    And I've got say, that whole Triton Eye thing must on exist on CC. I haven't heard of it elsewhere.
