    He just makes this place look bad if you ask me - and thats coming from me of all people!
    That's the issue right there, he's not. You can tell that from the body of work he deems fit to submit, plus who is moderating his work Clark? No surprises there then.

    I think the entire quality of the news posted has gone down greatly on this site. Not sure if they are just trying something new, but I think Ryan's contributions have been bad lately also.

    He has some ego from what i gather all of his responses to criticism are that "i write what i want and its my opinion so shut up" not phrased like that obviously but in a round about way.

    Time to go fella or at the very least maybe we should all chip in get him some ECDL lessons to quicken up his apparently 5 hours of creating these "columns" as they're called & the latest version of MS Office so the sum bitch can spellcheck!!!

    Pretty much, this is from me criticizing his lack of basic spelling or grammar skills.

    DK where you heard that. It does not take 5 hours. That's quite a long time. And according to Word, editors, etc. it looks good. Btw, when you look at my work, I use my own wording with a lot of things as I don't like to come off like a person simply writing something. I like to come off as the guy who enjoys doing what I do. I enjoy being passionate about wrestling. So my take it always on how I feel in regards to something and how I'd say it in real life. If I wrote it like someone you see on Huffington Post, it would feel like a job and not much fun.
    So, from what I can gather, he doesn't want to bother being professional, because that "wouldn't be much fun"

    I got blocked, now my comments are pending moderation... all for saying

    What you come off as, is a person who failed to complete High School English. There is an entire world of difference between having a different writing style and blatantly ignoring the rules of grammar that have existed for over a hundred years.


    However I do thank you, you answered my question even better than you realize, and now I know the secret to that lovely smell of fail that marks a Burgett piece, you spending almost no time or thought (as was hypothesized, however it is always good to get confirmation) and the fact that your knowledge of your own language is defined solely by what a buggy piece of software can tell you about it.


    I realize that this isn't exactly a scientific treatise or something world changing, but it is exactly your "Fuck it, that's good enough for this bullshit site" attitude that your strongest critics are reading in each and every one of your articles, and that we find so absolutely repugnant.

    Why does he treat it like some sort of fan forum? Geez mate, give it a rest. Make a YouTube channel or something. But then I guess, noone will sit still for him trying to make a point for 5 hours

    This is the nub of the matter and what Rob has been vocalising. The guy is just incapable of taking critique. Any writer (and I'm using that term very loosely for him) worth their salt strives to improve constantly and would relish any comments that would help them to improve their craft. Writing is a constant learning curve and if he had any real love for English he would know this anyway.

    He just seems satisfied to bash out the minimal effort he deems worthy to push out every few days and the powers that be on that side of the site seem to be happy with him foisting his mediocrity on their website for all and sundry to see.

    Extremely poor on all sides.
