@AlexDeLarge I've noticed, but there's a difference between being angry and just being a giant cock.
Specifically related to your comment, yelling about having downvoted a rant is just unnecessary. Downvoted and go in peace, otherwise you're influencing others to downvote as well.
More generally, there are a lot of people here that struggle with English. You're very good at it, bravo. That doesn't mean, in any sense, that everyone in the fucking world has an obligation to be good at English too. It's arrogant to think otherwise.
You can be angry, that's fine. Be angry about more valid things though. Does the fact that programming is so diversely cultured really bother you so much that you have to bully someone about it? I would hope not.
@AlexDeLarge Okay, let me break it down for you, as you obviously are missing the bigger picture.
MrHippo is here for the same reason as you and me: to be in a community where he can relate to other people and talk about tech without the response of a blank stare. English probably isn't his native language, and that isn't a crime, that's just how it works in a world with more than just one culture. Either he made this meme or found it, and decided to share it with the devRant community to entertain people and to get upvotes, and most of all, to feel welcomed here as a new user.
But his grammar wasn't absolutely fucking perfect. Here comes super user AlexDeLarge with 62242 dicks up his ass, going out of his way to voice the fact that he downvoted this meme because of the grammar. And what do you know? The comment got more likes than the post. Just because you felt the need, for whatever reason, to not only dislike the content (for a rather ridiculous reason), but also to SAY how much you disliked it.
I'm very sure MrHippo would have loved to post the meme in his native tongue, but he went out of his way to use a meme written in English just so you could write an angry comment about how a couple of words were wrong.
My point is you're shitting where you eat. If you think it's okay to tell people their posts are shit, then eventually other people will too, and our welcoming, loving community of like-minded people will turn sour and people will leave. I'd recommend from now on you are less verbal with your dislike of memes. Who are you to police what other post? Just ignore, or downvote if it gets your dick hard, and move on. No need to bully someone.
