    especially on elite messageboards like USMB, and other forums that people post to, IanC's threads are admittedly marked with lower grammatical proficiency, receive lower replies and pass independent scrutiny at a lower rate than other people's threads. is it reasonable to give him the same credit for a thread when the chances are that they will underwhelm?

    I agree.

    Compared to William Joyce's racist threads, IanC's are of low quality.

    hahaha. while I will admit to poor grammar, I contend that my threads include more actual evidence and solid logical ideas than others. at least evidence supporting my side, it always seems a little light from my detractors.

    Poor grammar is a sign of poor intelligence. Unless English is your second language, Ian, you should quit posting until you can make yourself at least look intelligent.

    grammar is secondary to ideas and the logic behind them.

    perhaps you could put down an idea sometime so we could evaluate you.

    :lol: I just gave you one. Grammar is absolutely vital when trying to make yourself understood and convince those that disagree with you to see your point. You've convinced no one of anything...you've had a few chimps that agree with you applaud you, but that is all.

    Take my advice or not. I have no problem with you continuing to look stupid.

    perhaps, perhaps not. pointing things out to people is good enough in its own right. I never would have read The Bell Curve if I hadn't read two specious and strident books denouncing it.

    I wouldn't expect anyone to publicly agree with me here because of the taint of political correctness anyways.

    Are you suggesting your opinion is more valued than his? How do you determine the value of opinions? Grammatical proficiency? Number of replies received? I don't agree with everthing he post, but his opinion is equal to yours in value.
