Re: Writing and reading in dialect

Hank Knight
I'm as Southern as anybody on this forum. I have been avoiding olbuck's posts because (1) they are a PITA to read and decipher, and (2) I have a real distaste for those who makes a mockery of the Southern dialect - of which there are many. They reinforce the notion that a Southern dialect connotes ignorance and crude social manners; an attitude that is all too prevalent elsewhere.
