Why is it that this:

if u can give more details abt the bug then i can check

seems so much less intelligent that this:

If you'll give me more details about the bug, I'll check.

Notice there's only about two characters' difference in their length.

Current Mood: picky

Aaaaaaaah, nooooooo! You're hurting my eyes! At least spell to and are, even if you leave out capitalization!

You mean I have to SPELL, too? That would require using my brain and paying attention!

Depending on where you start reading in the first sentence, the meaning changes. All you need to do is drop the "if" and you get:

u can give more details abt the bug then I can check

And since half the words are mis-spelled anyway, the assumption is they used then instead of than and you get someone who can't spell and is easily overwhelmed.

Also, the use of "then" in that sentence forces an object to be included (which isn't): give me more details, then I can check them

I'm not a grammar queen, but those are my thoughts.

Damn me and my IRC -> HTML issues. Someone tie a red ribbon around my finger. The first two lines are from one person, the rest are from the other. At least this way I avoid divulging nicks...

Ahh... then parsing the original sentence can really only be done accurately by context. It makes sense when I read the rest of conversation.

Also, it appears as if you are chatting with some script kiddies.

There's script kiddies, and then there's genuine hackers / crackers on that server (it's a private server). The little script kiddies are in that channel and a few others. The hackers / crackers actually find exploits and write the scripts... A few of them have even set up competitions in Europe. So, yeah, the second person there was a script kiddie. The first wasn't really, though he does help them.
