Well, b-gurl, I know for a fact that most geek guys (who know C++) like women who speak proper english on the internet.

And for the record, the only C++ junkies worth liking are the ones who hate C++ and prefer C.

Hmm, most of the assembler coders I know are older mainframe people. Not what I'd usually call hot [Wink]

/did assembler at Uni, a long time ago. Prefer Python, though, so I've probably dropped off the bottom of your attraction scale right now...

Why do some women prefer that their boyfriends grow a beard or wear that certain hoodie or that pair of jeans?

It just looks better.

I, for one, would like to reach through the computer screen and wring my boyfriend's neck every time he types "ur," "ure," "tring" (for "trying") or "suppost" (for supposed). It just makes him look dumb (when he really isn't) and it bothers me. [Mad]

So in other words, if you want to put your best foot forward online, it's better to be gramatically correct than to type AOL-isms all over your posts and look dumber than you really are.

The Shift key is your friend. Not Caps Lock, though - that's an evil key that should be banished!

I could probably dig a girl who programmed assembler...but really, I pine for a Perl hacker. [hearts] Oh, #!, #!, #! ... [Wink]

print "I'd be very happy...\n" if defined $universe{"luck"};

Anyway...I know someone who says that she prefers to code in assembly. I don't understand this one bit, since everything I've ever seen from her is shoddy as all get-out, and I can't fathom how she could instead be good at assembly... Maybe she can't see the big picture, but only works at the intricate level?

Oh well...life is curious like that.

I personally want to meet an objective-C kind of woman, because she'd be able to see things in a much more organized way but still speak my language [crazy]

How about a little bit of Smalltalk? [Wink]

Oh, the humanity!

(and sorry, I just never took to LISP)

Caps lock for PL/1 and COBAL is a moot point. The last time I used varients of those was with card punches that didn't have lower case. [Smile]

I say that it's an abomination, and the PC 104 keyboard layout has been a drag on the world's economy. The last good keyboard layout was the Sun Type-4 Unix layout.

Hmm, I wouldn't say that. I'd bet a lot of the editing for that code these days is done on mixed case capable systems. Well, the PL/I stuff I did certainly was, anyway...

It's not an issue of geeks prefering women to speak properly on the internet, but rather that overuse of slang is lazy, impolite and rude, geek or not, male or female. It shows that someone won't put effort into communicating effectively.

surely "impolite and rude" is a personal opinion, besides i would have thought that the actual content would depict whether or not someone is being rude, as you can be rude whilst using correct grammar.

No, she's absolutely right. It shows you have no respect for your reader - you won't expend any effort into writing properly. I get really pissed off at sloppy writing online in areas with relatively 'static' content - that is, stuff that isn't time dependent and will be there for quite awhile. I understand lack of capitalization in instant messaging / IRC, as one is trying to actively communicate with text, and so capitalization may go by the wayside as a speed tradeoff. Personally, I have some RSI issues, and so that's an additional reason why I don't hit the Shift key very much on IRC. However, when writing in places like these, I have some time to compose my thoughts, and certainly make every effort to dot my Is and cross my Ts - it's trivial to do so, and makes it so much more reader-friendly. It's bad enough that people have to bother reading some of the tripe I compose - they may as well not struggle with the structure of it. [Wink] I'm not going to go off on a tangent about it this time, but suffice it to say that poor grammar and spelling (particularly that which Xanthine has dubbed "AIMglish") generally causes one to become distracted, and lose his or her* focus on the actual 'content.' That's all.

<facetious>
So now, ya hear right? Write good, mmkay? Make that edumakation count. [Big Grin]
</facetious>

*n.b. While it would be more convenient to use 'their' in this case, I understand that this is not correct, and shouldn't be used to express unknown gender of a singular third person. *grumble*

How about I tell you about how China has simplified it's characters so that there are now less strokes in each character making it easier for children to learn, however the characters themselves have lost a lot of their aesthetic qualities. Now look at English in my mother's day, she says 'either' could only be pronounced in one way, the English teacher insisted on this, then think about cheers and how that has entered the English language, does anyone under 30 bother saying 'thank-you' any more, 'cheers' has entered the English oxford dictionary so you can't just say that's slang, its all about enjoying the English language just like simplifying Chinese has enabled millions of peasants in China to learn the written language more quickly, you lose some and you gain some.
