Congratulations for getting your Slackware system up and running, although I don't know why it took you three tries to get it running, even my first time with Slackware I got it running at the first install, and I even started out with Slackware, no other distro, and I am still learning more about Linux ....

I resent that... Although I am not a native Texan, I have lived in Texas since the age of 4. I don't speak in ebonics, and I am rather annoyed with those who do. Ebonics is not a language, but a form of stupidity. Yes, sure there are those who use slang, and I have used slang too, but in moderation, and there is nothing wrong with using slang here and there, but when someone writes sentences riddled with grammatical errors, that person needs to take an english course. I find it sad really, that there are some foreigners that speak better english than most Americans. Anyways, even if you were to speak with a true native Texan, I would still guarantee you that you would have a better chance of understanding a native Texan, than a person who speak in ebonics. Native Texan = Mostly heavy accent, maybe some changes in grammer, but still understandable. Person who speaks in ebonic = worse than a foreignerr speaking english, its as simple as that, and thats the same with the whole "L33T, SP33K" deal.

Edit: One other thing I would like to add, just hearing some people and the way they speak here in certain parts of the country, maybe the British should come back across the pond, and teach some of these people how to speak their own language. I've heard foreigners speak with better clarity than some people here. Anyways, thats my rant.

Well any native english speaker won't like the French language, I guess it stems back from the hatred between the British and the French.

Speaking is one thing. Typing phoenetically is completely different. You can speak with a Texas accent and be understood. Hell, I live in Tennessee where the accent is thick as well and I can understand most of them. But when one speaks unintelligably or as intelligent as they really are (meaning not very intelligent at all) then I get irritated. And when one types unintelligably and unintelligently then that's something totally different. If you have a Texas accent why does that make you want to type out words using a phoenetic Texas accent? THAT, my friend, is stupid. And to have sentence structure that resembles Ebonics...That is also very very stupid.

Resent it all you want. You just about said the same thing I did in your post about how irritating it is when native English speakers can't speak English properly. My post was just a little shorter than yours in saying it. Talk like an idiot then you get treated like you're an idiot. That's my policy.
