Oh yeah right.  Which one of the wanna-be lawyers is most trust worthy?  It's like asking which one of the fat people should make sure nobody else eats the cookies.

He means...why do you say "bye now" a lot? Mix it up.  Try "Later" or "See ya!" And for the love of God, if you are really leaving, LEAVE!!!

I must say whenever she says "Bye now" I picture one of those snooty tiny Asian girls, complete with an accent so think you'd think they just hopped off the mandarin ferry boat, that like to say that after they think they've told someone off.

"Ok? Bye now."

Sorry Yuck, I don't mean to pick on you, but you're making it too easy.

I don't recall saying it was objective. And also, convention plays a role in the certainty of comparative severity of rudeness.

Isn't it implied? Unless there is common knowledge that there is an objective distribution of rudeness, which I'm not aware of. 

As far as convention is concerned, in my neck of the woods being called a mutherfucker can actually be seen as a compliment, whereas speaking in tongues (unless it's English, Spanish or Ebonics) can be considered grounds for an ass whooping (not saying I agree with that extreme).  I'd rather be called a mutherfucker than to listen to someone speaking in some foreign language, when they are perfectly able to speak english.  I find that to be extremely rude and offensive.

As for the "or I'll report you to DHS as a suspected terrorist", I was rather shocked at how  offended people were to that.  My verbal reaction on reading the 5th response condemning me was "Chill the @#!* out people."  I, like the Chinese speakers, didn't recognize how offensive my action was and may not even have done it had I known such beforehand. 

Wait, scratch that.  Yuck has already indicated she'll speak in whatever language she wants whenever she wants.  So it's clear she doesn't care if we find her offensive.

This is littered with holes...

...although maybe that's appropriate because the whole debate is a little silly.

Dude, you're getting way too upset.

Another poor assumption.  I just have too much time on my hands right now, and enjoy trolling.

Anyhow, no holes.  It's as solid as Jello.  It may be shaky, and even a little fruity inside, but no holes.

Okay, so I went and found it.  Log on to your account and then go to "my docs."  Click on "transcripts" and then download the PDF file "academic report summary" (the first one). It will be at the bottom of the page in the summary.

Wow, that is pretty poor design.  I looked at that page umpteen times, and clicked on the adobe attachments several times.  The link to the transcripts looks more like a heading with an underline for the two attachments below it. 

Whoever designed that fails UI intuitiveness 101.

Oh yeah those boxes...No wonder there's nothing in your box.

I'll be happy to fill either of your boxes.

:-*

This was funny the first time someone did it a few days ago.  It was a tad lame when some-one did it a second time.  The third time shows genuine lack of originality and pointlessness.  I'd expect better from a 174.

Speaking in Chinese where it's clear that many people participating in the thread/conversation don't speak Chinese is itself rude, but contrarian's remarks were certainly more rude than the speaking in Chinese. That's all.



Severity of rudeness is a subjective state.

299
EXCUSE ME, BUT I WILL NOT PM SOMEONE JUST TO SPEAK CHINESE...I WILL PUBLICLY AND FREELY SPEAK MY NATIVE LANGUAGE WHENEVER I PLEASE.

Fine.  So don't be surprised, shocked, or insulted when I tell you to speak English or I might report you to the DHS as a suspected terrorist.

Why are you speaking in Chinese? What do you have to hide? What is it that you don't want us English speakers to know? 

Don't be surprised if people are rude to you if you're rude to begin with.   Yes, speaking in a foreign language, especially because you know someone can't understand you, is rude. 

I was joking about the DHS part, but there are people who would do such a thing just because they hate Chinese, hate foreigners, or just don't like you.  Once you get arrested, searched, interrogated, and your life turned up side down you may end up thinking twice about how the real world works as opposed to how it should work. 

So...

Speak English mother fucker.

I'd say there is a general intolerance for illegals and I'm all in favor of rounding up every one of them and kicking their asses across the nearest border... Canada, Mexico, or one of the two oceans. 

By way of responses, you'd think we were in 1939 and the DHS was rounding people up with or without papers.   Unless someone can show many instances of legal residents being rounded up and put into camps, then I'd say we're still far off from that point.  The nation is far far more tolerant of immigrants today than just 30 years ago.   

However, as for the foreign tongues earlier in the thread.  Once or twice was cute, then it turned into a full on conversation which was, IMHO, much ruder to the rest of us non-speakers than was my blunt response.
