Windows 7: Does Your Country Have Language Pollution?

C'mon...it's always been there. I can remember saying "Man" after every other word. "Wow man, we went to the movies man, and it was cool man". Years ago I was in line and the guy behind the counter was talking to his buddy while he worked. It was "Dude, did you see that show last night dude?" Dude, dude, dude. When I got to the counter I made a show of looking at his name tag. I said, "your name's not Dude?"

Language tends to evolve with the current minds, back in the 70's they used words like "rad" and "hip".

My first thought to what I thought you may have referred to is "text language", which is a true pollution to a weak mind.

Also in the attachment, notice the clothes and must I say, the hair.

It's funny that it requires practice, I've trained myself to fix typos and errors both in sentence structure and words used.

There are virtually limitless combination's to what you could mean or to what "over here" could specify.

Same goes to the saying of; "this one guy".

When I clicked to "Quote" the thread, I saw a lot of red. Also, you lost me somewhere in the middle of that paragraph, I could only understand, like, every fifth word you tried to type.

Also, imagine all of the green underlining due to sentence fragmentation.
