  • There are other ways to correct a fellow.

    i.e.

    "Hello dear Ralph, perhaps you mean Spread and not spread? Thank you"

    The best course of action would be to do it via PM. We are a "live" forum, not a static one. People can edit/modify their posts. We allow room for amendments.

    If someone corrects a typo politely, it can be edited. Both by the member as well as by forum's staff.

    If the reporting person wants to tip privately, just contact me or any other mod regarding the typo.

    One golden rule when correcting is putting oneself on the shoes of the corrected person. One should start by asking oneself: "how would I react should this be directed to me"?.

  • We are here to debate and not to support anything blindly and let wrong info pass to mislead others. If the forum is so suave, why I am being "moderated" without having info for that? The correct way should be an intervention by Global Mod/Admin, highlighting my wrongdoings (to me at least)and deleting my posts. I was not having any personal fight, I did not utter a word that may look "dirty". If we can't debate, we can't learn from each other. There should be no "ego" involved.

  • Giving a lot of lattitude to all of the members here on their use of written English should be encouraged.
     
    As I regularly see about 20 gross errors in the language on these boards almost daily, it only takes a second to realize that English may not be the poster's native language.
     
    That being said, some of the worst poster's are English only writers to whom English IS their native language.
     
    Granted, the language does have some odd parts that almost everyone manages to mangle at one time or another, especially contractions, but as long as the main idea of the written passage is understood, we should be able to see past a lot of these errors.
     
    When I do see a continued "error" of the language, I have been know to PM a person and gently explain the correct word or phrase to use.  Most of the time this help is appreciated.  Every now and I'm told to "mind my own business".   It's not a real problem either way for me.  I've tried to help and it was either accepted or rejected.   Move on!
     
    As a former proofreader, most of the posts in ALL forums give me pause at times.
     
    I also admire those who can converse, and write, in more than one language as I lost that particular set of skills many years ago and now that I no longer travel to Asia, my Mandarin skills have been reduced to junk status.
     
    So, let's try to cut some slack to those who may have a few problems with writing English.  It's easy enough to recitfy without some type of culture clash in the process.
     
    Even governments are not immune to spelling errors in English.  When I was riding the high speed boat running between Kowloon and Macau every other day, I got to see this lovely piece of work!

  • The debate was not regarding use of English in a wrong way or wrong spelling. If someone reads my explanation, I clearly said that

    "parlay" is the genus and "reverse martingale" or "anti martingale" is one of its "species". If someone points towards a tree and say it is a tree with green leaves and I say, it is not just a tree with green leaves but a tree of  orange, I have done a crime.
                            I can point dozens of such "productive topics" of many members here which are nothing but "today I ate a cheese burger" kind of "productive" debates.
                     When we really start a productive topic which may lead and help other fellow members and not just increase our post count, rarely someone comes out of veil.
             I am not undermining Ralph's contribution and I openly appreciated him for his multi-sysyem bot which he cared to share for free but it can't bar me from fair criticism.

  • It's not the criticism per se... It's the way to convey it my friend... the way to convey it.

  • Criticism always looks sarcastic even if honey drenched. I merely tried to correct him and he made it an "ego" issue and started referring me to google. I never counterattack till someone hits below the belt. Now, he is in my ignore list with another member.

    We can agree to disagree regarding this.

    There is the entity of sarcasm, and there is the separate entity of criticism. They are not tied together. To criticize with sarcasm is a choice, not an indivisible truth to my best understanding.
