This has nothing to do with the evo 3d or any phone at all...just a general rant. I've been coming on here for 2 years and posts from people get worse and worse. I'm not talking about people in different countries, for the most part their English is pretty good. Its the people that say haz, and mines, and da instead of the. And no punctuation. Its irritating and hard to read. I'm not perfect in anyway and I'm sure I'll get flamed for this but I just needed to vent.

We're comin from a pure power source.

I don't think natural selection is working anymore. Too much piss in the gene pool and not enough chlorine.

Out of curiosity, why do you have a Chinese flag under your username?

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who cringes at some of these posts. It baffles me, some of the things I see on here. From respected users, to devs, and on.

I'm not talking bad about you. Or any other person here from a different country. I can only speak english so I wouldn't even begin to do that to someone. In fact your english is probably better than most Americans.

Because I love China and I don't have any love for mine country, if I could work in China then I would move away from mine country, because I don't like the society where I live in.

Yeah we have an great social system, but that's all there is to be said about mine country.
