Yes, but I think the opposite may be true of Holist: he has delusions of grandeur.  :magick:

Nah. Through biological and social luck of the straw, I'm simply smarter than most of you.  :lulz:

Im a little confused as to what qualifies someone who admits that they dont speak english very well to assess the ability of a native english speaker to communicate properly in english? Unless holist somehow thinks that american english is inferior as a dialect?

Nothing. And even if he thinks American English is an inferior dialect, that has no bearing on the ability of American English speakers to communicate with other American English speakers. He is just intent on making himself look ever more like an ass.

Actually, you are just a little confused. Full stop.  :lulz:

I have not admitted that I don't speak English very well. And the reason for that is that I actually do speak English very well.

Yes, she should.

I would in fact pay one of the Nigels to follow me around with a sock full of sand, and everytime I act in any way like Holist, she'd whack me on the side of the head.
