it was not funny the 1st time you said this
Time and time again I see the argument "well your grammar sucks so you must be stupid" or "you spelled this wrong, you must be stupid" as part of a debate. Really, I have to ask... why? Personally I don't think it has any place in a debate, unless that debate happens to be about grammar/spelling (or if someone's throwing out personal attacks based on grammar/spelling but can't master their own... but that's beside this particular point).
It simply seems immature to me, like something you would do to derail the debate train when you know you're losing. I admit, it's something I used to do, but those moments for me now are few and far between. Given that I sadly see this used constantly in this forum, I figured this would be the best place to ask.
So, if you do like to use this sort of crutch in an argument, then why?
Or, if you don't, why do you think people do?
I am genuinely interested in knowing if you are from England or not, thats all. I'm not asking to cause an argument, or deflect from the topic.
I have to return some videotapes.
