It’s Two Words

Okay.  Something that really drives me up the wall is people who don’t know how to spell “no one” and spell it “noone.”  I really don’t understand the mix-up here.  We have two words, “no” and “one” so why do people put the two words into one word?  I love languages and I can usually tell when someone is spelling a word based on how they’ve heard the word.  In addition, I have made mistakes writing in other languages by trying to spell a word based on how it sounds to me.  I could be wrong but isn’t this called “sounding it out?”  How does one pronounce “noone?”   I did a quick search and this is how one site tells us how to pronounce  “noone” http://www.pronouncenames.com/pronounce/noone .  Wow!  Right?  I mean, come on.  Have you ever heard anyone ever say, “Noone (use the pronunciation guide on the link) likes peas?”  No, of course you haven’t.  However, the number of people misspelling “no one” daily is growing so fast that I believe we have a secret pandemic on our hands and do you know what?  Noone cares.

I endeavor to avoid websites, forums and anything else online that has to do with God and public opinion.  I have nothing against people sharing their opinion on God or their belief that God doesn’t exist.  I would rather read an atheist’s opinion on God than the typical online Christian’s attempt at “converting” the non-believers, because most Christians appear online as if they are illiterate fanatics who love Jesus while atheists, on average, appear to be reasonably educated and can actually illustrate their thinking in writing.

Let me get something straight.  I am not the best writer around nor am I a “grammar Nazi” looking for errors in what people post.  I’m not even paying much attention to what I am writing myself (this absolves me of any mistakes), but I will put what I am writing right now up against 90% of what any other Christians online are trying to say in their attempts at evangelism in forum posts and comment sections on articles, etc.   I also must point out that the people who publish articles and the like are not my targeted group for this rant.  I am talking to you forum hounds and comment fiends who feel the need to tell people who make rude comments that, “Jesus luvs u.”  It makes me literally cringe misspelling words like that.

As I previously mentioned I try and avoid anything online that has to do with Jesus where people can post public opinions.  However, I cannot avoid my own friends on Facebook.  I think Facebook preachers are the worst at evangelizing but Facebook preachers deserve their own post.
