Would you be so kind as to reference your source(s) and also reference ways languages are deciphered/translated?

To be fair, I can't be bothered to pull out the google on your behalf.

Not to say it can't be done and wouldn't be worth it mind you, but its effort for a result I'm not all that interested in obtaining.

I can understand being too lazy to want to continue, but to claim that backing up your claims would be for my behalf is erroneous at best.

Let's get to the point shall we? Translate this and let me know if it was worth your time:

This is an example of what some lazy people are vehemently trying to accomplish. The right to completely ignore any/all rules of a language, if allowed to propogate, makes (at a minimum) written communication nearly impossible, as not only are there no rules to base assumptions on to begin deciphering what one person has written, the process must be done over seven billion more times, as everyone else also has their very own special unique snowflake way of writting their own personal language.

The purpose of language is to communicate. If the author has effectively communicated his ideas to his intended audience, then of what use is better grammar?

I know sometimes it's difficult to realize just how much you spend on incidental things each month or year, but seriously, EVE is very cheap entertainment compared to most things... If you are a smoker, smoke one less pack a week and pay for EVE, with money left over to pick up a cheap bundle of flowers for the EVE widow upstairs.

So I've been told that if I want to try solo-ing in 0.0 (just so I can try and see what pvp is like) then I could take a Taranis and go for a joy ride through 0.0 with it. But are there any guides for something like that that I can read through to be more prepared?

Any advice would be appreciated.


For a good start at the lessons of PvP Taurean Eltanin has a good blog about his lessons learned on his pvp start at http://flight-of-dragons.blogspot.com/ . My advice would be to start from the first post and read them in chronological order.

I'm assuming that Garmon's intended audience were gamers that want PVP advice rather than grammar police that pooh pooh good information because it's missing some commas.

That depends. Are "dumb" and "****" put together often enough now to warrant a compound word or should there have been a hyphen?
