Forums - General Discussion - Who else is sick of the word "err"?

I'm sick and tired of seeing people use this disgusting word almost every single day. What is this? Is this some sort of UK or Canadian lingo? I wouldn't be surprised if it was. They don't say this in America.

It sounds like a constipated pirate or something. Seriously, usage of this word needs to be a bannable offence. 

The verbal pause "uhh" or umm" or the hybrid "uhm" should be embranced. It's much more neutral as the sound isn't as distinct, as verbal pauses should be, and thus much more effective (and less affective).

Also, some cultues, like the French, can't make the "r" sound due to biological inconsistencies. So when a person just out of the blue says "err" it's like they're just trying to insult French people for no reason. They're not even making a point! They're just making the "r" sound specifically to target French. Ethnocentrism needs to stop!

Furthermore, why the fuck are you using verbal on the internet to begin with? Verbal pauses are avoided in real life, yet they are embraced on the internet. The fuck? Please, stop with the verbal pauses altogether; just type the words you want to say.*

*No offence to people who have a mental condition that forces them to type everything they say, including verbal pauses. 

Please Stop it.

I'm sick of people who joined in the year 1969 and that has no avatar and any username.

This sounds like something Spurgeonryan would write when he's bored on the toilet.

Making a thread without showing who you are?

That is like revealing a console without showing Kaz

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

I'm not going to "embrance" anything I don't want to. Also, perhaps it's to make the dialogue seem more natural so we don't all sound like arrogant grammar-nazis? Er.. yeah.. that sounds right.
