What the "Barf Alert" is going on here?
Today | Coffmg

Posted on 03/10/2002 10:35:20 AM PST by coffmg

What is happening? Every thread, seams like anyhow, has a sentence with unon words. Too many ############## and someone gets the quotquotquotquot key sort of messed in with everything else. Is there some purpose, rhime or reason for this. I think someone has forgotten that the parens {}, () and quotation marks are more "stylish" 'Do you need instructions in English writing? KISS keep it simple stupid is far better for the reader then this gibberish from some HTML/GCI hell.

When you "right click" on an HTML document and perform a "view code", the special characters are then defined within the text. Sometimes it is forgotten that this is included in a cut and paste operation. I have done it. It is unfortunate, but the Pearl Script (I think or is it UGI?) won't permit this special character code from being displayed in anything other than it's native constructs. Hopefully this will change in the future. I would like to imbed some nice DHTML or XML scripting in my response or posts. But right now what we can do is limited.

You are drinking too much coffee. Take a deep breath and relax. OK.

You are silly. You say gibberish.

Gibberish is just just cheese, without the frills.

No frills is sexist. GET IT?

"Some" FReepers . . GEEZ!

Can we have a moderator up front, please? And an ambulance?

*"Just just" should have been "essentially."

Is there some purpose, rhime or reason for this.

rhyme: correspondence in terminal sounds of units of composition or utterance (as two or more words or lines of verse)

rime: an accumulation of granular ice tufts on the windward sides of exposed objects that is formed from supercooled fog or cloud and built out directly against the wind

Rhine: geographical name river 820 miles (1320 kilometers) W Europe flowing from SE Switzerland to North Sea in Netherlands

question mark: a mark ? used in writing and printing at the conclusion of a sentence to indicate a direct question

rhime: no definition

drop the gibberish

What you might call 'unon', others might find very much 'on'.

If you don't like it, ship out, Muggsy.

Please! Puleez! This is a spelling related thread, therefore we must spell {[(and quote)]} correctly.

Missed a few: thread, seams: Should be spelled "seems". I guess the DU side of your brain thought you were writing about sewing (not sowing).

The last sentence (not "sin tents" -- those are at carnivals) starts with a single quote but doesn't close with one.

If you are going to start a tread, try not to leave any hanging.

Oh my!. It's infectious. I meant "thread" not "tread"

You think this thread could end up on Nightline?

I was wondering if anyone would notice it and remember that ancient dust-up about my "encription malfunction." That was certainly wild.
