    •  that is because you are over my head... (0+ / 0-)

      I once spent a few weeks in a writers colony in the 70s.  half of the people were gay.  I spoke with a guy who was said to be a genius just before I left.  I had been avoiding him thinking that I was not worthy or qualified to even waste his time.

      He finally cornered me off and as we talked he eventually told me that his IQ did not change him from being a fellow human being.  He said that he felt that it only put the onus on him to make himself understood by all people especially those who were not as literate.  he was tolerant and patient.  he eventually added to people if they were open.  he did not crash anyone for splitting verbs or messing up pronouns.  

      I personally don't care what you think of my flaw at writing, spelling and speaking... but i know that you are smart enough to know... that is all that counts...

      when i was in the world we would have called you a jic who commits cre cre...  but i don't do that no more
