we all have our own way of getting our point across

there's a guy on the bug list who can't write. i mean the guy just cannot communicate via the written word. i've never met him in person so i don't know if this carries over into his spoken communications.

anyway, today he posted a particularly classic example of his work, on the subject of adding acid to batteries.

"David
I'm no chemist but a person with the experience to speak
on the addition of acid to an already sulfated unit. batteries
have a built in memerory and that was changed, buy
something or someone. How stupid as it sounds, when that
happens to a unit that started at 13.5 volts is lessoned it,
never regains it back. As mentioned always check it. Some
have a gauge some don't but check it or have someone help
you. Adding more acid just accelerates it's sulfation.
my 2 cents"

Aaaaaa! Aaaaaaa! Aaaaaaa!

I don't know if I could ever meet this guy in person. I mean, the urge to just leap upon him saying "Write English, Motherfucker!" would just be too great.

Then again, I'd also be inclined to hang back and see if he was a rambling incoherent in real life. Too.

But it sorta looks like english isn't his first language. So maybe I'll cut him some slack.

the conclusion i've come to after a couple of years of reading this guy's stuff on the list is that english IS his first language. he's just really, really bad at it.
