Fixin' Grammar!

Okay, I had a bit too much fun here!

Let me say in advance that I don't generally advocate proper English in Internet comments.  Normally, I find correcting someone's language the height of pompous.


Pompous is good sometimes, too!

+1 to brent on the internet!

(see what I did there!?)

But seriously. Daemons. Where are they :P? Hope you're feeling better btw.

Student Teacher said...

Perhaps when he said, "Garbage," he was talking about the 1990's rock band featuring Shirley Manson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garbage_(band)).

I find it more clever that you turned a comment from the post your wrote on Bols into a post for your own blog doubling the reward for your work at the expense of your new troll friend..

**golf clap

Carry on good sir. .

Drkmorals said...

edit I suppose I don't know if that is from Bols per say.

Granesh said...

Excellent job Brent! I'm glad to see you crushed one of the main problems of BoLS right now. The article was interesting too, what codex is the Ad-Mech running under?

McNs said...

Perhaps he meant:

"You're full of it to lol (rightousness indignation at you're el-oh-el-ing?). All of your articles are hot! Garbage? That? Rarely! Make cents, thankfully!

I have my own opinion and can. Call you, Schizo? All day long and if that hurts your feelings, well, that's just so. Sad?"

Grammar is the funs.

Farmpunk said...

maybe "Hot Garbage" is a colloquialism where he's from for:

Oh My Gosh... You turn me on so much, the zipper ripped out of my pants.

(don't ask me how that could happen. It probably involves Tequila, a German Shepherd, and was not one of your major life goals.)

*shrug* I liked the article.

Herald of Nurgle said...

Just one more step on the path to becoming British.

Incidentally everywhere is overstocked with teabags and monocles these days.

Big Whit said...

I think the icing on the cake was, "aren't you just a bright ray of sunshine."
You could just tell that this last guy couldn't believe that you had just destroyed someone like that. Shock and awe!

Brent said...

Whit: Actually, Mr. Paintraina... who is a really mellow dude for a name like that... commented first - though I'd love to claim that!

HoN: I lived in England for 7 years or so. Can I be part Brit?

Farmpunk: I think it was generally well-received; my articles draw good numbers. My style turns some people off, though.

McNs: Heh - that's much more clever than what I did! Wish I'd thought of it.

Granesh: Thank you sir! Necrons.

Drmorals: No, it was Bell... and yes, I did! I feel slimey like a lawyer for doing it, though. :)

Then someone said 'Garbage' and I remembered the cute redhead in the band...

Crazy Red Praetorian said...

Ah, internet hate, you gotta love it, and there has been so much to love, lately.

b.smoove said...

Well played, sir.

Jennifer said...

Few things are as fun as trolling a troll. And that was pretty well played. Although I'm not so sure about Brent calling Shirley Manson a hot red head... She kinda just looks angry all the time.

cynthia davis said...

Milk came out my nose. I was not even drinking milk. Well played, my love.

Wyatt said...

Brent, I appreciate the fact that you could have cut off my reply, but didn't. Glad someone appreciates how damn funny I am.

Also, here's some fun: when someone puts comments like that, I will sometimes click their profile to see what it is that idiots do all day. Apparently they like to comment on Fox News articles.

*Ducks*

Meh. Who is this poser to Stalin's crown? Only I beat you down like a circus monkey.He's right, of course. But he's a pale imitation.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.

Ass.

I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
