If you're looking for attention, try #offtopic:matrix.org . THIS ROOM is for people who want to improve their English Language Skills, or help others do so. HOWEVER it's not a place for idle conversation. Kindly limit yourself thusly or leave.

Now do you have a TOPICAL question, or may I get back to my other matters?

12:11:04@MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgMMJD-MxO Buh bye, now. "Don't forget to write.", not that we'll be reading any of their narcissistic all-about-me-ism prelude to their all-about-me-isms. "Yes I want all of the full attention of all you little people because I'm about to demand all of your unimportant time in helping my self-important unemployed rotund derriere with this word-stuff, since a photo alone on my résumé will not suffice to garner me a meal-ticket. Do take the time to grovel at my smelly feet and pay for my pedicure session. " Ugggh!

😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣
I can't see madgirl wrote that set you off on that little tangent, but I appreciate the invite. Now I'm in a whole two rooms where someone Other than me gets to be the Grammar Nazi.

(Speaking of, since this is a space dedicated to English words and grammar and all, someone really should come up with a better term for that particular characteristic. Just saying.)

Also, per your rant, should I interpret that as, "We have no interest in helping you polish your resume."? 😂😂

19:59:46@MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgMMJD-MxO No, that particular individual (idiocracy reference) first started a forbidden, loathsome "hi-hello" "ping-pong" volley; and did not actually ask any direct question, but did the complete polar opposite of "Don't ask to ask. Just ask.". Re-read what still appears visible. I summed it up with:
Yeah, so get to the point and someone might answer.
... and that particular individual just wanted to be argumentative rather than actually directly ask for help with their English Language difficulty. It's noa general chat room, but a tech' room for linguistics.

Keep that in mind as I not eyou being the chatty type. In #Books:hackerspaces.be it can be more glib, so long as the chat stay focused on literature. Herein, not so much

"chatty type" lol That's a fair assessment; I am sometimes. But then again, we are, after all, currently utilizing a communication app. So, as long as I stay on topic, is that necessarily a terrible thing?

To wit, I'd like to point out that my chattiness (chattyness? Chattiness. I've no idea how to spell that. I'm not even positive it's a word.) tends to be more a matter of verbosity and is entirely related to my biochemistry. For which I apologize.

Did I use that phrase right? "To wit"? I've always been under the impression that it means something akin to, "speaking of," but it's possible I misunderstood.

"A tech room for linguistics" would be the perfect topic description so long as you clarified that Tech in this context is not short for "technology" so much as "technical."
Is there a dictionary bot? (Or, because it's off-topic, can you point me in the direction of where I might find that information?) I don't know the word, "glib" and I only just realized that. Lol. 🤦🏻

20:57:52@MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgMMJD-MxO Towards the end you became topical and the extraneous bit, presumibly for mitigation was within a topical message, so...

Anyway we have an encyclopedia 'bot, which will have to suffice for now. Andf, assuming you let Client-Side JavaScript run free for duckduckgo, if you lead with /ddg , your search term will pop-up a little blurb.
