"The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary." Merrian-Webster Online I love tongue-in-cheek grrrlacher....This is a joke right....... grrrlacher tell me it ain't so ...........

Well grrrlacher if you're going to continue to make no sense and/or use words that don't exist, he has every right to say something because frankly, you've been looking like a total dumbass of late. For the SpoFites who might not catch on... And if you take the first letter of each paragraph of this column, you'll know what he's celebrating. Updated: 12:18 a.m. ET April 1, 2006

I hope he pairs with Stacey Kiebler. She is smoking hot.

Alas, a truely inventive "joke" on this day of fun.

I'll tell you what the problem is, Grrl. Your inability to use a spellchecker or a dictionary reflects on all of us, because newcomers finding SpoFi for the first time will look at that atrocious FPP and think, "Wow, if people don't care enough to even spellcheck, this site must suck." I have no beef with you personally, and being a big Bears backer, I love your name. But for God's sake, if you have a question about the usage or spelling of a word, save us all trying to translate and look it up.

"FLAME" on bitch!!! Wow. Can't we all just get along? Can't we all just use a dictionary? Everyone makes an occasional mistake in spelling and grammar, myself included. One of the reasons I originally began participating on this site, however, was because the contributors, overall, DO come across a bit more appropriately. With more and more people joining in all the time, I hope the quality doesn't go completely out the window. It doesn't take much for adults to proof what they write prior to posting. As for the story, even though it's a joke, in this day and age, I wouldn't even be shocked if it DID happen.

I totally agree with dyams and fraz I have nothing against you either, my problem is laziness,community college education,and trying to post while at work....( It's hard looking over your shoulder and looking out for your boss!!!)

posted by Grrrlacher at 10:58 AM on April 01

Yeah, but if you're going to use a word like "infamy," look it up! If you're too lazy to look it up, just use another word, one you're more familiar with. And your over-the-top response (calling people "asshole" and "bitch" when they point out your painfully obvious mistakes) makes you look petulant and churlish. This place is not a goddamned chatroom, okay? Kick your game up a notch or go back to the Bears Fans' message board.

It is pretty funny... emphamy. Maybe that emphamous spamming "ultimate community" would take ya. :-D

What happened to the "SportsFilter"? Grrrr is out of it and should be sensored or filtered out. Let's keep the profanity off the board.

posted by porkchop at 11:32 AM on April 01

heh. "Sensored"? Rather funny you would post that on THIS thread. Try censored.

A freakin typo error and I have to get bagged on? What an ASSHOLE. With the emphasis on ASSHOLE. If you simply don't like what I have to say don't read my post and move on, AND AGAIN CONTRIBUTE TO THE LINK DON"T COME IN AND FLAME......Don't act high and mighty cause you been here longer I could give 2 sh*ts about that....It was a TYPO give it a rest.

Hey porkchop, use spellcheck next time it's censored not "S"ensored what's wrong with you.......

posted by Grrrlacher at 12:01 PM on April 01

Just for the record, I did contribute to the post. Grrrlacher, it isn't just one typo, its the fact that you have not been typing well of late, and when people point it out you freak out. A typo here and there is okay as long as you don't do it repeatively, but in your case you start bitching and don't even bother to try typing intelligently.

POST RELATED COMMENT- Good on Mattie for doing what he wants to do. Just because he was a kick ass college football player the next logical step may not be the NFL. Matt obviously has some very real commitment to this ballroom dancing noise. NON-POST RELATED COMMENT- Grrrr, you should expect a little good natured ribbing when you fuck up on a public forum. I doubt the intention was malicious. Chill out, take some reds, smoke some grass and take the intensity down a notch. PS I just use an online dictionary for those $50 words I hear but don't know how to spell and most of my posting during the work hours.

he wrote it like that on purpose dumbass,grrrlacher quit worrying about peoples spelling and punctuation.what, are you one of those people who likes to tear people down to build your sorry ass up.

Grrl, I bitch because I love. This is my favorite site on the web, and I want it to stay that way. Having "emphamy" on the front page -- which is not a typo; you weren't even in the goddamned ballpark -- lessens the quality of this site. If your problem is laziness, get less lazy. If your problem is not having time to do it at work, do it from home or make more time. If your problem is a lack of education, get a dictionary. As Ying said, sharing your opinion and your thoughts is perfectly fine, but you can't then just duck away from the responses, especially if your thoughts are poorly explained and/or worded. And throwing out "asshole" several times doesn't help. I'm done.

Who the phuck said this was a speak and spell message board center i mean damn he spelled the word incorrectly OK so lets get over it and move on and oh yeah by the way Grrr not a typo when more than one letter is not correct its called a misspelled word LOL

Somebody please escort the foulmouthed illiterates out of here.

its very interesting how much of a variety of different people we have on this site. there are many different beliefs and ideals and moral standings. we have the "Phuck Sensorship." and the "Somebody please escort the foulmouthed illiterates out of here." posts. so to the stuck-up tightwads that can't appreciate the occasional curse word i say, "fuck you." and to the dumbasses that have nothing to do for the post, i say "shut the fuck up." ...fuck.

Ha ha, April Fools? Yup. You can tell by my post way above (though with all the trash around it I forgive you if you skipped it) that this was an April Fools joke.
