    he was implying that the phrase "could care less" is stupid and it bothers him, not that he could or could not care less about the content of this thread.

    Thank you for the concise and precise translation. The inferred implication; may, or may not be known to the casual reader, especially those of us who reside in the former imperial capital of the former empire!

    Yes, I understand that. Again, my point is that it is nonsensical used that way.

    What do you mean by "complete fiction"? What do you mean by "authentic person"?
    You are (not your) too (not to or two) young to (not too or two) remember as much of Dylan's career as we (not us) senior citizens. Dylan first gained popularity as a folk-singer in the NYC coffee-house scene, popularized (UK: popularised) by the Beatniks. Both of these American sub-cultures had rather strict (largely unspoken, but rigidly enforced) rules of grammar and syntax.
    When Dylan showed up at the Newport Folk Festival with his Stratocaster, the Folkies all went ballistic, booing his performance and saying that he had "sold out" to the power structure and could not longer be considered a radical social critic. Although he may have lost his earlier following, he almost single-handedly invented an entirely new musical, late 60's style, "folk-rock."
    Although I was never really taken with his new style, I had to give him credit for going his own way, instead of complying with the cookie-cutter style that (not witch) others tried to impose on him.

    I honestly can't believe that this post got over 260 replies. Some of you folks must be really bored with your guitars...:D:D Pure B.S. post, do we need a damned grammar post in a guitar forum?

    Run your first sentence past your high school English teacher. If I can understand the post, I don't care. However, start picking a fight with me and attack a typo, and I'll let go with a cannon shot. By your own standards, your first sentence makes you a sloppy thinker. Lack of punctuation andrun on sentences are what bother me. I got in an argument with some droid, and I complained about the run on sentences, and the bot though that more commas could fix the problem, instead of breaking it up into sentences.

    I always keep my resume short and relevant. It is designed so that any bureacratic mindset like yours immediately tosses it. Saves me the trouble of traumatizing worthless dingbats. My resume is proofed and checked, and totally worthless to anyone who doesn't have an out of control fire going on. I don't waste time with anybody in personnel.

    The spelling police usually don't have a leg to stand on, so they pissand moan online, since they can't really even dish it out, lt alone take it. Reminds me of the nonsense, 'no such thing as a stupid question,' Any question anybody asks without thinking about it first, is stupid.

    Joni Mitchell expressed an opinion that Dylan was questionable.

    Oh dear! You must be constantly concerned.
    Apparently so since you seem to have failed to notice this an "off topic" forum.

    Maybe all this auto correcting on computers has made people not care about grammar and formatting in general?

    Fake voice, fake name, fake stories. Fake.
    Joni Mitchell found little of real substance to Dylan.

    Is your concern based on use of English or American use of English? Let me know if you REALLY need guidance ...
