    Default Refudiate Redux

    By now, most folks on here are aware that earlier in the week, Dixie jumped all over a member for using the word "repudiate". Dixie put on his self righteous word nazi hat (I actually think it is sewn to his scalp) and told that posted that "the word is REFUDIATE, not REPUDIATE" Refudiate, of course, is not a word in the english language.

    I think by now, most folks are also aware that Dixie then claimed that he, of course KNEW that REFUDIATE was not a word, but that his Google spellchecker had indicated that it was so he went with it only because of that. See...it was not Dixie's fault that he castigated someone for using a correct word and went so far as to suggest a non-word as a more approprate replacement...it was Google Spellchecker's fault.

    Dixie even went so far as to say :

    Who thinks 'refudiate' is a word?

    ...I mean, besides Google spellcheck?"


    Well... that didn't seem right to me. Why would a sharp successful company like google have a fucked up online spellchecker that did not know what were words and what were not words?

    As it turns out, I have google spellcheck on my desktop. I would imagine that many of you do as well... so I tried it out.

    do a little test for me: cut and paste the following list of words and drop them into the quick reply text box at the bottom of the page and then run google spellcheck.

    refudiate
    repudiate
    stupid
    stoopid
    trailer trash
    redneck
    racist
    slanderous
    lying
    unethical
    cowardly
    chickenhawk
    motherfucker

    what words are shown in RED as misspelled?

    of course Dixie had to enter REFUDIATE into his personal dictionary on google for that to happen... this is not magic or sorcery... google spellchecker works a certain way, and it works that way for everyone. DIxie fucked up, and tried to blame it on an online computer program.

    nice try, you fucking slanderous, redneck, racist loser.

    Oh I am not the one holding on to it and posting threads about it. I admitted my error in the thread I made it, as soon as I realized I made it. I explained how the error came about, and Maineperv called me a liar. I have no reason to lie, I have admitted that the error was my fault, I didn't blame it on Google, I should have known better, and it is my ignorance that caused the error to be made. Now, since then, Maine has persisted to claim that I argued it was a word, and I didn't, Google spellcheck thought it was a word, but other than that, the fact that it's not a word has not been questioned.

    I posted the screen shot, because it clearly shows what I saw, and how I came to post what I posted. I have no idea why it shows up like that, I didn't add the word to the dictionary to my knowledge... again, no reason to lie to you about this... I suppose it's possible that I did at some point, and didn't realize it, but why would I intentionally add a word to the dictionary, that isn't a real word?

    I accept full responsibility for the error I made, I should never rely on a spellcheck program that way, at it's completely my fault the error was made. But the scenario I described is exactly what happened, and I have no reason to lie about that, nor did I lie about it. Maineperv just used his superior judgemental skills to make that conclusion, and proceeded to slander me some more here, so I responded. I'll be damned if I let some smart-ass perverted old fart in Maine lie about me and get away with it. I'm sorry you are too fucked in the head to understand that, but keep licking Maines balls, he likes that... especially if you are under 25!

    Well...certainly one would receive a sexual education on this board (were they in need of one) if nothing else.

    "Keep licking his balls, he likes that."

    Do men really like that sort of thing? I had no idea.

    the point is.... google spellcheck does not think that refudiate is a word....Dixie had to have entered it in to his personal dictionary after the fact and created the screenshot to try and deflect, once again, the source of the error.... For Dixie to say "I never should have relied on a spellcheck program that way" still tries to make it, in part, the "fault" of google... when the fault and the chicanery lies entirely with Dixie....spineless, yellow Dixie.

    oh...and I called my sister and brother in law on an unrelated issue and we got to talking about Obama.... I asked them if they had seen his announcement speech from Springfield and they both said they had. Since they are both oft-published college english professors with PhD's in english literature, I thought they would be perfect people to ask about the "presumptuousness" debate. They both agreed with me, oddly enough, and not the moronic hick redneck from the Birmingham trailer park, that Osama's use of presumptuousness was appropriate and that it was a well chosen word for the thought he was trying to convey.

    Do we need to create a "Trash Talk" area so that those who don't want to read about the latest Dixie/Maineman battle can simply avoid the area?
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    is some invisible force causing you to continually visit this thread after you already know what it is about? Would there be some compelling reason for you to read this thread beyond the first sentence of the first posting in it if you really didn't want to?
