Anyone ever get the feeling some members are posting drunk?

    Granted I know that spelling and grammar in this fine United States is not at all what it used to be- it seems once every couple days I come across a post that seems to have been created by an intoxicated person...

    Some prime clues:

    Rambling, and borderline incoherent posts and thread titles.

    Spelling that is so bad you have trouble even making out the words from context.

    Subject changes 3 or 4 times in a single sentence.

    Punctuation comes in the midd.le of word.s

    Putting odd "speaking" elements into the post (like "weeeeee").

    Posts that ask huge questions that are vague, and the original poster never bothers to follow up after their initial post (it's like they forgot all about it ever posting it in the first place).

    Anyone ever read posts and think "this guy is totally drunk?"

    Actually I recall reading some post where the poster will admit he is drunk or has been doing some serious drinking that day. Good times [​IMG]

    I'd support a sobriety test that everyone has to take every time they want to post something here. Granted, it would be extremely complicated to implement such a system, but it would save a lot of confusion. [​IMG]

    I think Jack was sober when he posted that. Glad the recovery is going well Jack!

    I always assumed everyone was drunk when posting, at least in the AHL.

    And one time, I'm pretty sure the poster was nekkid.

    But what if someone is just plain stupid? How can you differentiate?

    Hmmm...there is a fine line between drunk and stupid. Hey! I am standing on it right now! ("weeeee")


    Oops...I fell off on to the stupid side again.

    Reading posts from drunks is not nearly as entertaining as playing against them on XBL while they are drunk. Real time voice chat does have it's small graces.

    Perhaps there should be an addition to the information below each user's name. Directly under "Member Since:" we could have...

    When I start relieving myself in the feedback section, then and ONLY then can you call me drunk. [​IMG]

    I'm not too concerned with those who post drunk, i'm more worried about those who post wasted on crack! [​IMG]

    You can always tell because they advocate fullscreen and P&S. [​IMG]

    I'm shocked that our good friend Ron P hasn't posted yet, hell, he looks drunk in his sig photo! [​IMG]

    I'm just messin with ya Ron, you da man and you know it. [​IMG]
