[View Quote] > Er, no, those are spelling differences, not intensity differences. "Worst" is more extreme than "worse"; and there is no "worser" or "worsest"

This double comparative has a long literary history beginning in the late 15c.: e.g. Chang'd to a worser shape thou canst not be-Shakespeare,
1591; I find she is A diuell, worser then the worst in hell-J. Ford, 1633; For I, e'en I, the bondsman of a worser man was made-W. Morris, 1887;
Some gals is better, some wusser than some-E. Pound, 1959; The people oh Lord Are sinful and sad Prenatally biassed Grow worser born bad-Stevie
Smith, 1975.

The Oxford English Dictionary's verdict (1928) on the status of the word is still about right: 'The word was common in the 16th and 17th c. as a
variant of 'worse', in all its applications. In modern use, it is partly a literary survival (especially in phrases like the worser part, sort,
half), partly dial. and vulgar.' Its vulgar use is illustrated by the following examples: Your poor dear wife as you uses worser nor a dog-Dickens,
1835; That's my new word. Yeah, it's gonna be worser. You know, worse to worser-Interview (US), 1990.

Can we be any more pedant?

Dear Eep,

I guess you jerked your knee before you actually digested the post. I was simply stating the obvious which is backed up by Oxford and Fowler (current by the way) which supports your original premise ya ning nong. That is
that the word "worser" is indeed a vulgar and merely a literary survival. Learn to read for context Eep.
If your going to be a pedant, at least be good at it.

[View Quote] > Current usage dictates "worser" to be incorrect--PERIOD. Get out of the 16th and 17th centuries, and don't expect some 12-year-old interview to support your argument. Take a basic English grammar class and get a clue.

Eep the pot is calling the kettle black :o)
I've had years of watching your psuedo-pedantic behavior and grammatical anarchy decline with each thread to your final resort of name-calling. After watching you struggle to support your arguments with something more than
mud-slinging, I thought perhaps you could use a bit of well-sourced material to uphold your claims. (i.e.: worser). I made the mistake of concluding that with your obvious superior intellect well armed, that you could make an
actual argument rather than just flapping your e-lips.
Alas, as your most recent posts reveal, it is not a lack of material or your misdirected education that is your demise. Rather, your name-calling discloses a thorough lack of imagination on your part.
Kit (the ultimate pedant)
P.S. It's great fun correcting people isn't it Eep. It's almost as satisfying as the experience of making fun of someone or mud-slinging, but its slightly more socially acceptable. So, if you'd like a bit more of your own
medicine, please reply.

Dearest Eep,
Hmm, somehow I expected a wittier repartee Eep. Your average joust is at least good for 15 to

20 ill-conceived posts. Alas, the sport of troll baiting isn't what it used to be. (maybe
that's a good thing :o)) I'd have at least composed a poem fit for the occasion. This is
dedicated to troll-baiters (me) and to trolls (fill in the blank) everywhere. My apologies to

"Baphomet!" said I, "thing of evil! -- trollster still, if fool or devil!
Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this pleasant land enchanted
On this home by Horror haunted -- tell me truly, I implore
Is there... is there anything in your head? -- tell me -- tell me, I implore!"
But the trollster said no more.

"Moron!" said I, "trolling moron... prophet of the land of Sodom!
By that Heaven that bends above us... by that God who ought to love us
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
Comes a day when thou unbidden render up some talent hidden and join us in this idea midden
Post a rare and funny concept other 'readers might adore."
The trollster simply yelled and swore.

"Be that word our sign of parting, fool or fiend!" I grow tired of your endless farting
"Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no annotation as a token of that lie thou fool hath spoken!
Leave my peacefulness unbroken!...please sir, quit the 'news groups floor,
Take thy head from out thy arse, and darken not the 'news group door!"
We're sick of you, we want no more.

And the trollster, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
With his poorly written pile of fishboned crap scattered 'neath him,
And his ideas have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
Soullessly in endless scheming, and occasionally screaming when his ideas are called poor
I took my mind from out that shadow that obscures his uncaring face,
(insert name of your choice)Troll, please quit this place !

(cited upon request)
And with that I take my leave from troll-baiting and my puissant muse for poetry. I don't
often post to AW newsgroups and I'm sure the reason why is clear to many of you by now. No
need to ban me. (waves to the moderator) I'm done for

[View Quote] [View Quote] Hello :o)
Perhaps I was unclear. Trolls and Troll-Baiters my dear Agent1, are simply variations of
the same ilk. I have no issue with trolls or being a troll/troll baiter. I do appreciate a
well thought out troll-post. I'm sure you meant no offense nor was any offense taken :o)
I do however have issues with humourless and ill-equipped pedants and unimaginative
name-callers. These people illustrate clearly their inability to support a position. There
are a few here who could be great assets to the AW Community, to Activeworlds
Administration, who are a wealth of information about RWX, Renderware, object creation, UV
and texture mapping and yes, even grammar ad-nauseum ,who destroy their own credibility by
belittling tactics such as name-calling, who avoid the real questions by participating in
inane pedantry, who for lack of critical thinking skills are unable to convey any semblance
of reliability. (please see short examples from this thread at the bottom of this post)
(examples from other threads available on request)
I wanted to thank all of you who privately wrote e-mail and sent telegrams of support and
good cheer about this matter. I've been extremely busy but will get back to every one of
you. Again, thanks so much.
Eep, we know given your circumstances that you might not have known any better behaviour
but the important thing is to learn from your mistakes :o) I do hope you'll stick around as
Im sure the other readers will forget this whole sorry business in a couple of years.

Er, no, those are spelling differences, not intensity differences. "Worst" is more extreme
"worse"; and there is no "worser" or "worsest".
Um, Bowen, stop being lame. Get over it and learn how to use words correctly--which is what
this thread is about.
Oh you're being REALLY lame--properly lame, even. You're talking about
not English. Informal English isn't so lame, but you had better know the difference between

"worse" and "worst". How funny you expect other people to accept your mistakes
when you in your hypocracy don't accept others. Drive through, hypocrite-boy!When have I
been wrong? Good god you're a geek. Get over it already.
Hardly; you better go look up the word "efficient", sport. You're getting desperate for
arguments. Back to Grammar 101 with you. Credit is EARNED, not given mindlessly away.
Take a basic English grammar and get a clue (anyone spot the issues
with this phrase?)
Nope, my grammar is fine; you simply don't understand it. (this one just takes the

Your right Kellee. I should have thanked "he who shall not be named" for calling
me a moron, twit , snotty snob, a broken record and for suggesting I take a
class in grammar (although Ive considered this). Thank you very much :o) I'm
also pretty sure that in reference to myself, it was I who may have been the
first to use the terms "pedant" and "troll-baiter" so really there was no real
annoyance on my part. I am guilty though, of stating that there are a few who
are unimaginative, ill-equipped, inane....oh yes, I did call Eep a ning nong for
which I will forever be in a state of chagrin. :o)

Eep has stated himself that he has filtered me so Im fairly sure my last post
filled with his belittling remarks have not bothered him in the slightest. I'm
sure too that I haven't the personal power to cause anyone to do anything
against their will. If anyone were to react in a way to my posts that would have
them thrown off then surely I am not to blame. I just don't have that kind of
power. Likewise, if I'm ousted as a result of my posts Im sure you would
understand that Eep would certainly not be to blame either. I have confined
myself to this one and only thread amongst the thousands of threads within the
AW newsgroups and the thousands that have passed by over the years here. If it
is you Kellee that is annoyed...heck I don't blame ya! Mute someone.

Recommendation for mail client?

Mar 4, 2003, 6:20pm
Hiya :o)

Another ally here too Goober. Ive been using Netscape and its products since
about 1995. Netscape Communicator is offered for 17 platforms, including Windows
95, Windows 3.1, Windows NT, Mac OS, OS/2, and a variety of Unix platforms. The
product is available in Standard and Professional Editions and more than ten
languages. In addition, Netscape software supports Internet standards
(including Java, JavaScript, HTML, HTTP, IIOP, IMAP4, LDAP, NNTP, POP3, and
SMTP) and security standards such as SSL (no virus's here :o)). It seems to have
a few problems with ASP at the moment but I can easily deal with that.
I wouldn't have my mail or news reader in any other format.

rather, as you put it "script kiddies" since the early 70's. We know our history
because we were there.

Much to my amazement, Kit has made it to the "Worlds to Watch" as a
teleport from the Gateway GZ. In celebration, I'm giving away (free) a
fully texture mapped set of about 15 tropical fish to do with as you
please. Kit is also now open for business with a multitude of new
objects for sale. Bear with me in these early days as "object sales" is
new to me. I have begun a wee web site to which now has examples of a
few things offered in Kit for sale but by no means encompasses the
whole. So check out the web site ( )
and have a wander through Kit. Most teleports are located in or near GZ
there. Contact me in Kit by telegram or by e-mail at kit at
