I found your topic quite interesting and that's why I'm replying to your post for the first time and ofcourse, I have nothing else to do.
So let me start by asking how old are you? 20+ ? 30+? This is not meant to offend you in any way, but just to show you that age does matter in the way we perceive anything around us.
You have mentioned people here using phrases like "OMG! I'm dead." or Hottie. And I confess, I do that. Simply because I'm 19 and it's an age where all teenagers go crazy and tend to over exaggerate stuff.
Ofcourse, we aren't literally dead. Blame our hormones. They tend to make our minds crazy and these words are an instant reaction to it. Do we really care about what vocabulary we use to express our feelings? No. we don't. It's just a medium to pent out our frustration.
So, tell me, have you never gone through that phase, where you completely lose your senses and go ga ga about someone? Maybe it's not Barun Sobti. There definitely must have been someone who had that effect on you. And if your answer is still no, then you haven't seen that person yet.
What I'm trying to say is, the posts written in such language are just an outcome of teenagers going wild. They don't bother about grammar or vocabulary. Now, let me give you an insight of my perspective about you. I've never bothered reading your posts, because I found it too hard to decipher at times. And there have been times, when I've wondered why do people like you write any content as if it's going to be published in a newspaper or being submitted for a PhD.
See, it's all about perspectives. Maybe once I'm older, I'll start thinking in your way and maybe look down at the younger generation thinking what's wrong with them.
Just my perspective on this matter.
Thank you for taking the time to read and respond and your input on this 'topic'
I have to disagree with the age perspective of your response
I have 'met' and read some very young members posst and many who particiapte in this very thread on a regular basis who cannot be 'catergorised' into youth age group
They are very eloquent and I am in no doubt some of them like yourself have raging hormones especially where BS is concerned and very understandably so.
No denying the man is very good looking
Thank you for sharing your perspective on my writing and I wholeheartedly agree with you...if it holds no interest move on. Don't waste your time and read it. I am guilty of such an act
I can assure you that I am no aspiring journalist nor am I attempting a PhD...certainly not on this IF
As for accusing me of looking down on the younger generations please do point out where I do that?
I believe I made it very clear that its my outlook on the laanguage and nothing more nothing less and was not rude enough to mention any age group
Once again thank you for sharing your perspective
oh, I'm really sorry but you seem quite offended by my opinion. But that was never my intention. As I said, it was just my point of view. I totally understand and respect your views too. And I've never accused you of anything. And I have never objected to the way you write your posts. See, you are good at writing such stuff. But unfortunately people like me are neither that talented enough nor have the creativity to do so.
What I wanted to say is that the world is made of different kinds of people who all think in different tangents.
Ok, maybe I was wrong in the way I classified all the bunch of teenagers as having raging hormones. I apologise for that whole heartedly.
Maybe I contradicted my own statement. Yes, there may be teenagers out there who are normal and not like me. Afterall, no two persons are alike, which brings me to my point that this is the reason why some people appreciate language like you and some people think it is insignificant.
Once again, I never meant to offend you in any way and I sincerely apologise if you felt so.
There is never any need for apologies on these threads.
I have always advocated that philosophy and I stand by it
Feel free to air your views and I was not offended by your comments
Takes a lot more then that to offend me
I am a firm believer that you are never going to please everyone and that has never been my intention
Believe it or not I do this to provide a 'home' for our hommies and we some fun
Please feel free to join us at any given time if you so feel inclined to do so
We talk about all sorts of things and sometimes its all utter gibberish
One last thing I like to say is I have a passion for the English language
It opened so many doors and gateways of books for me
I have been its captive audience since I first began to read so you have to forgive my slight intolerance in not being tolerant
