The letters in "BCA" of BCAPL do stand for "Billiards Congress of America" even though the BCA and the BCAPL are two different organizations.

Well, everyone has their pet peeves.

Grammar is not a huge one for me. Like JB said, we can all understand the intent, no need for vowels.

One thing that is kind of annoying to me is when someone quotes an entire, huge quote just to reference one small part of it. Delete. Delete everything but the part(s) you want to talk about. Remember that, when you quote someone, your post now contains a hyperlink to that quote. If someone wants to read the whole quote, they can just click on what little part you quoted. It will bring them right to the full quoted post. Then hit the back button and you're right where you were.

Most of the time it's no big deal, but some members like writing small essays. I know it's pretty easy to scroll past the quote. Sometimes it takes a while to get past the whole novel. It's just a pet peeve of mine and one thing that bugs me a little in posts.

EDIT- wrote this before I saw your post inside english. Was not directed at you specifically......or macguy

Before you come on complaining about people's grammar or knowledge of the English language, I really suggest freshing up on how to properly use the semicolon. 'It should be;...' is wrong, I do believe.

If you are an English teacher I would be very surprised that your stuff wouldn't be 100%. Too many commas was one of the things my teachers taught me, and then you go and put five in one sentance!

Sometimes I ask for a Kleenex when it really is just a normal facial tissue. I am sorry.

I've done, met, or worked with many people who have college degrees, PhD's etc only one impressed me as "wow that person is smart".

Many of the them are good people, but at what point in life does ability count for more than what we accomplish in our teens and 20's?

Those kinds of comments are always fun. How many of them did you impress? LOL!

Whether or not one is smart has nothing to do with whether or not they are educated. Obviously. But do you suggest that there are fewer smart people that are educated than there are without education? That would be an interesting notion. I would suspect the distribution to be fairly even myself.

I know all sorts of people of all walks of life and levels of education but I work with very highly educated people every day. Most of them are quite amazing really...but they are doctors and medical students. Top 2% of the population in character, integrity, intellect, and aptitude. They amaze me every day, I am continuously humbled by them.

Some of the smartest people I have known were fairly uneducated. It was a shame for them because it left them at a serious disadvantage in general. Kind of like a Ferrari with cheap tires, a bad tune-up, and cheap gas. Still a Ferrari...but at a serious disadvantage next to those with a good set of tires etc.

Frankly I personally don't care how educated a person might be as long as we can converse and have fun.

As you can imagine I have a few degrees myself. That just took hard work....not intelligence. The hardest working people I have ever met in life were people with advanced degrees....and I have done manual labor myself in my younger days. Only one non-educated person I ever met impressed me as a hard worker. OK that's a lie....I just had to say it because it sounded about as clever as your comment. LOL!

I don't disagree.

Hell....I should probably get out of the house more often! LOL!

I'm on this here forum instead!

Well spoken?
