I've finally gotten around to trying this new 'blogging' thing that all you young 'uns have been raving about: Anything But Plain (http://lifeisfantasy.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/anything-but-plain/). It's about written English; go figure!

Because I hate never getting comments, I've read and commented upon your post and am now doing so here.

Interesting ideas, although I don't necessarily agree.

Thanks for your time Rutskarn! What don't you agree with?

[For those of you afraid of linkies, my first blog post basically says "written English is way more arbitrary and confusing than it needs to be."]

I read it and I can't say that I agree with anything you're saying. Good luck though!

Well, shaking your head and walking away isn't much of a statement. So long as you're civil, I'd love to hear why you don't agree.

I agree, English is possible the most confusing lanugage to non-native speakers ever.

To clarify, BTW: I left a comment detailing my counterargument.

Glad to know others agree with me, Azure Butterfly!

Yeah, I read your post here before I got the approval email from wordpress about your post there. I'm working a reply to your argument into the next blog installment, as we speak. ;)

Three new posts added, only two of which are further complaints about written English! [If anyone is interested. If not, this thread can RIP.]
