Idiot sites not to go to

Postby Infidel » Tue 10.10.2006 9:30 pm

I still frequent the About forums, in spite of how far the site has fallen. Because the site is not moderated, except in extreme cases, a lot of idiocy can happen.

Some guy came on and advertised his site. It happens. Unfortunatly, this time the site was truly a disaster. Instead of telling the guy off, we gave him some advice, but he insists his site is great.

Bleh. So this is just a warning. Don't use his site as a learning reference. I'm not pointing to his site, but I will point to the threadso you can see what I mean.

LOLOL, He just got told ;)

I see what you mean.

I don't want to be mean, but the only thing this site is good for is vocabulary. Not even vocabulary, maybe it should give some examples with the words he has, and put the word in hiragana. He has no grammar help... He told you how to pronounce vowels and he said you're ready to start learning oO I don't think so.

Celebrated Sword - Meitou 名刀

I can see why he included that one between "black tea" and "do you have _____?" Image

I wonder if he meant 名答 or even 迷答. The latter probably suits this tosser better.

He has like 10-15 hiragana on his hiragana chart.
I especially like how he tells you how to pronounce vowel sounds. :D

I like how the vocabulary mixes formal and informal forms, and randomly gives one-word and full-sentence translations without specifying which is which. :@ That is something that should not be on the internet.

かんぱい means the bread I eat?? :o *Confusion sets in like the butter melting on my かんぱい!!* :|

What the hell does this even mean:
誕生日めま死んにま亡るな砕だ砕日本語何言葉めまめ誕生日め結婚めま結婚め具合風邪はおかまよりまた大事にありまんご無沙汰ま久ぶり久ぶり久ぶりよ年を迎だ。よ年をあけまめごま。まめ。

Anybody??

*It's funny how the guestbook is filled with dumb blond jokes. :D

underneath the hiragana chart, theres a paragraph. does it mean something or is it just a random collection of hiragana and kanji?

It just looked like random stuff thrown together. But I'm no authority. It's funny how you both commented on the same thing, at nearly the same time.

lets get somethin straight dude
mite kudasai is not "let me see" it is "show me please"


I think this is my favorite line.

hmmm..

I have become inspired to create my own "ultimate japanese site!!!" It will have such gems as
そうですね -- Your mother is a crocodile.

This isn't because I don't know better, but rather that I hate having competition. The more people thinking that そうですね is "Your mother is a crocodile," the better I look by comparison.

I like that idea. Keep the dorks looking like dorks, and let the people who actually put effort into learning the proper way shine brightly amongst the darkness of dorkness.

Makes me wonder what makes him think he can make a decent website about learning Japanese...

Hmmm... Maybe I should change the slogan for this website from 日本語を磨こう to, and I quote from his signature, "every piece of info on it is learning info so shut the hell up"

That makes me want to stop everything I am doing and study Japanese through his site.
