Extremely Irish Grammar Nazi who tries to be as benign as possible. Because of a combination of his accent and a tendency to slur his words, is a living, breathing unintelligible. This may be connected.
Fan of reading, SF in particular.
Myers-Briggs personality: INTJ.
Devotes the bulk of his wiki time to correcting spelling mistakes. Worries that relying on spellcheckers (programmed by fallible humans, remember) to check your spelling and grammar (especially grammar) will irreversibly degrade English. Phonetic spelling is bad enough. Recite the creed of the Grammar Nazi:
- In brightest day, in blackest night,
No error shall escape our sight!
Those who trust a spellchecker shite,
Heed our power — the Grammar Nazi is right!
Also worries that overexposure to this site is changing his writing style for the worse warping his enjoyment of series to the point of insanity. But it's also turned him on to:
- Dr Mc Ninja
- Irresponsible Captain Tylor
- El Goonish Shive
- and Sailor Nothing,so he's even.
Spends far too much time on this site, and is currently mastering Bizarre and Improbable Giraffe-Herding Techniques. Likes Shōnen anime, children's animation and manga more than is entirely healthy for a 32-year old man. See below.
