"I realize your actually a blogger and not a real writer, but you've been at this for the better part of 2 decades, and your posts are STILL train-wrecks and grammatical garbage."

"The Dark Knight Rises."
"The Dark Knight Rises."

As part of its ongoing effort to catalog the rapid debasement of the English language, Criticwire created The Funniest Internet Commenter of the Week Award, bestowed upon one remarkable web denizen for their outstanding achievement in the field of crazy. As always, the Funniest Internet Commenter of the Week has not been edited in any way. Someone actually wrote this. No, seriously.

The Funniest Internet Commenter of the Week for Friday, July 27:

"captain_spaulding"
Commenting at Ain't It Cool News on Harry Knowles' review of "The Dark Knight Rises"

Harry.. one suggestion. PLEASE refrain from swearing (fuck) in your posts...

... while a common inference of 'passion' or 'sincerity', using the words as you do gives the perception of a 10 year old boy who's just learned how to swear with his friends. It largely cancels any legitimacy or relevancy of your posting, and lacks imagination as well as dignity or pride.

My Great Uncle Hagstrom once told me, "If you have anything worth saying, then it's worth saying with intelligence and creativity. Swearing is for fools and braggarts, and is an indication of a weak mind."

Food for thought?

It's NOT that I don't appreciate what you're trying to say in your posts, and IF what your saying, IN CONTEXT of the film is true, then I would largely agree with you. However, you lose credibility when your post degrades into an infantile tantrum or tirade.

Christ on a crutch, I realize your actually a blogger and not a real writer, but you've been at this for the better part of 2 decades, and your posts are STILL train-wrecks and grammatical garbage.

Congratulations, captain_spaulding! For swearing while asking someone to refrain from swearing, and for condemning Harry Knowles for being a blogger rather than a "real writer" even though Ain't It Cool is not a blog and Harry Knowles is not a blogger, and for referring to someone's writing as "grammatical garbage" in a comment that contains at least half a dozen grammatical errors, you are the Funniest Internet Commenter of the Week! Food for thought?
