Try this well-worn approach:

I know everything, I never lie and I'm always right! I'm a pro and you're a coackroach whose name I never heard of, you insignificant pleb!

Don't you just love those types?

One way is to use "chat room English." Ppl who don't have enuf courtesy 2 spell out words can really make you hurl.

Other things along this line -- PEOPLE WHO WRITE IN ALL CAPS! Hey, that's shouting, man!

and people who write in all lowercase. maybe it's supposed to be cool or something. you have a shift key. USE IT!

It would actually take me longer to figure out how to spell out the internet version than it does to just type regular English!

Misuse a bogus title.

Example:

Sign a post Dr. John Cass M.D.

Real doctors NEVER sign anything using both titles. It would either be Dr. John Cass or John Cass, M.D.

The other way meands "doctor doctor." They teach this at medical school.

Also, if you are going to call yourself a doctor, make sure you use the name of someone who is actually licensed. These things are very easy to check up on.

I dislike people who make personal attacks, especially when their directed towards younger/newer magicians, imagine if the people you looked up to started to make fun of you. My other pet peeve is when people start threads about topics they already know about. Don't get me wrong here, if someone knows about a certain subject and is still curious, that’s fine. But don't start threads just for the hell of it.

Also, from now on, I pledge that I will do my best to type with proper grammar as to no longer annoy any others such as Bill or give off the persona of someone that is illiterate.

Daniel:

Sometimes people start threads about things they know about because they have seen a plethora of posts about the subject that either were grossly uninformed or completely misinterpreted a statement. One good example is the famous (mis)quote from Robert-Houdin -- "A magician is an actor playing the part of a magician." That's a partial quote, and it's actually taken out of context.

But some people have based entire careers on that statement. When they find out the actual context of it, and why it was included in the book, they learn that it doesn't mean exactly what they thought it did.

Regarding grammar and spelling -- well, they are important, especially if you want to be clear in what you are saying. If I ask someone what he means by a particular word or phrase, especially if the word is one that simply does not exist in English, it is because I want to understand him, not because I want to put him down.

There is a nice trick to make a point about someone's writing online without directing your comment to them personally; you change the name when you do the quote function. Today someone missed my point in changing their name when I quoted them. I decided they have lost my respect as a person. Sad to see a young wannabe transform into a chimp at a typewriter. I feel bad for the chimp.



Surely that's not a fair thing to do Smile

Arrgggghhhh!!!! I'll never get to 50 posts following these rulez!

All I want is a litte respect! (just a little bit... just a little bit...)

People who murder karaoke songs for a joke!

And well done for getting past 50 posts!

(Also! people who don't understand that I'm having a joke WITH them!) (not AT them!)

Chris :.... Ooooooooooooooo! That's more than 50 for me!

I've done karaoke. I'm probably not very good at it. What I've done is to have them play a legitimate song; (Another One Bites The Dust, Addicted to Love) and then sing the lyrics to Weird Al Yanokvich's verisons (Another One Rides The Bus, Addicted to Spuds). Crowd seems to like it.

"hey I'm gone be right back later. Im gonna do street magic"

"How does this work, What is the secret please tell me"

Those are 2 of the best. I can stand english error since not everybody has english as his/her first language.

Cheers.
