We aren't pointing out grammar to feel accomplished; we are accomplished. We are pointing out the clear and proven fact that you have no business writing a blog about doilies, let alone watches. Your writing is akin to wandering into a school to find a telephone only to find it's actually a prison - you get the hell out of there before anyone sees you.

Reading your writing is like going to a porn theater. It's not that it's exciting - it's that you want to wear a bag over your head before you'd let anyone see you do it.

I'll give you 10 minutes to look up "akin."


You are definitely a pretentious cunt, you have proven that clearly.

TermityB I will help your tightass out here. I will give you some porn that is right up your alley. Go rub one or two off, then come back here. No pun intended there.

I am sure this forum has a ton of great things to offer. But the closed mindedness is fucking appalling.

But you are not managing to take the licks.

Putting up yet another over-sized poorly-executed watch presented in garbled prose and non-descript pics will ilicit predicably jaded responses.

What you experience as close-mindedness is people with a lot of hours in this hobby who have seen it all many times before. If you show them something interesting they will be interested, and quite supportive.

Sorry I don’t do watch box pics. I actually go out and test the watches that I review. There’s a difference there.

It's "TemerityB."

Fish in a barrel.

Well, welcome to the forum; I eagerly look forward to your unintelligible prose, as well as 17 successive photos of the same Chinese-made watch on the same rock.

Or, to put it in a way you'll surely comprehend: Guud nyte, Stee Fen!

Putting up another Rolex submariner is so unique and refreshing right? Putting up another fat hairy wristshot is such original thinking and talent right? Bashing something that you don’t like is so intellectually stimulating right?

That's the defensiveness that's causing you to hit the wall here. It seems you don't see the contribution you are making to the communication problem.

You have to be on the youngish side of 35. If you "WRITE" but don't care about being grammatically correct then you are just trying to make excuses for being kind of stupid.
Like saying "I design watches,but I don't care what they look like."

You know ... you can differ with people's taste in watches, but to come here and complain about "fat hairy" wrist shots and the abject, juvenile name calling? And moles on people's arms? These are my friends you're jibing about their personal appearances. Not allowed on ANY blog or site. Which only goes to prove you're way over your head; your blog proves it.

You're gone, you amateur, you just don't know it yet.

Fellas, warm up the Caddy.

So far what I have seen here reminds me a lot of the Nazi’s way of thinking, if it’s not how we feel, if it’s not what we like, we try to exterminate it.

You've written a lot of incredibly stupid things in this thread, but that's so dumb it is in its own league.

In the choice between improving your writing and aggressively defending being sub-par you are choosing the latter?

And then wondering out loud why its not being well accepted.

Step up and be better than your critics. Generating respect is the best way forward and that is how you do it.

I can live without the respect of people who think they are better than everyone else because they are on an inclusive forum that scoffs at microbrand watches.
