Declan posts a semi-alarmist PLC article at y2kculture? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

If you can stand to give him the traffic, anyway

Looks like Declan had to get slapped in the face. Sorta I used to go to this site all the time but got tired of all the poking fun at y2k. Looks like they got a reality check.

Maybe Declan should be taking a writing class at the community college.

"They may not have any immediate affect on our daily lives."

I don't check my spelling and don't take others to task on this forum, but since Declan went to the trouble to help me with a misspelling on one occasion, I'm more than happy to return the favor.

Furthermore, "may not have any" would be better written "may have no." We could go on like this for a while, but why bother.

Uh, Puddin'. The article was written by someone named Joab Jackson, and was originally published in a Baltimore newspaper. Declan's just re-printing it on his site.

How that typo got past the newspaper's proofers is a bit of a mystery. "Effect" vs. "Affect" is a very common mistake, and should have been picked up easily...

To the extent that Declan had nothing to do with the posting, I withdraw my criticism. The other guy is probably not a jackalec.
