    I think one of the problems with youth of today, is that with television, computers, and video games replacing books as the standard form of entertainment, youth simply don't have the experience with the form of written language... (Not that Video games are completly bad. The Air Force has found that applicants with extensive gaming experience adopt much more rapidly to the new 'glass cockpit' technology then the older and more experienced pilots...)

    Take the middle road: Play (well translated) RPGs.
    Lots of text and it's still gaming.

    I dont think it's that personally (hope I don't turn this into a debate). But it's only a handful of these kids that do it. Unfortunately these kind of things are very contagious. Rudely said, it is as if they are "horny" to post, and post quick so fast they might not know what they typed themselves.

    Now I understand why the staff is also so angry back then.

    More than half the kids on this site are going through puberty, I think that explains their "horniness".

    Maybe you should turn it into a debate? It sounds like a worthy discussion, wether it's here or in the Debate Forum.

    As for the topic on hand, I think it's all a part of the "fast food" mentality that has settled on America today. Everything needs to done quickly and efficiently. No time to write because instead of "cuz." No time to review over what you say. I know I always proof-read my posts after I post. I then go and edit what I need to.

    At the same time, it seems as if the youth today is just so apathetic towards everything. And I don't know what to point the finger to, but no one cares. About anything. Period.

    Edit: Haha, I misspelled whether in my first sentence. Interesting, I did it right before I explained how I proof-read my posts. Well, there's your evidence.

    Edit #2: How about 500 points, pyoro? Hehe

    It'll be a bit unfair to all you veterans, but I will not give points to you guys. I apologize for this, but I hope you'll see where I am coming from with giving out points. Most of you whom I already know will make good posts, and on top of that most of you guys have lives outside here, so points don't even mean anything.

    I was going to ask Trunks to admin donate me some points, but in the end it was always better to just have it come out of my own pocket instead.

    Anywho, there is no reason to debate this. Them kids having some trouble posting is the truth, and making it known to them will only make them angry or say I am there to hurt their feelings.

    Points are used to purchase Username/Title effects, those nifty little icons under your Username, or icons to gift to other users.

    Points are earned by starting threads, posting, and by other people posting in threads that you've started. Point management is done through the vbPlaza Menu...
