Wow talk about being a dick! I didn't feel I needed to use punctuation on an internet forum. It's hilarious to me, that you want to get on someones case, and say this is an early warning sign of "failing at life". Thanks... that was a good laugh.
Internet forums are archived through Google. So, theoretically a prospective employer could Google search you (though I doubt they will know your screenname) and see how you type.
That is true, though not what I was getting at.
It is the difference between someone who shaves every day and dresses decently and the person who only shaves for job interviews and wears sweats unless he is trying to impress someone.
Daily habits make a man. The military teaches this. Prep schools teach this. Life teaches this. Some people learn the lesson and become very successful; most don't and remain mediocre.
Similarly, the way one presents oneself online represents a habit ... either good or bad.
Take gamerfreak as an example. I wouldn't have considered him good for much 10 years ago, but we could all see that he had potential. Now, given the way that he presents himself, the way that he argues and presents his reasoning, I would happily offer him the chance to land an internship or entry-level position in our field. He has learned the importance of appearances ... and that is the point I was making.
You think you can judge someone by how they type on the 'net? LOL
Yes, you can. People always judge you.
Quite successfully, in most cases. Again ... Trav vs. Gamer. Which will be a success and which will fail at life? The answer is obvious.
What's your secret? Most people have to study to do well in their classes. Granted my only experiences are from a 4-year university. In my case, even studying sometimes isn't good enough.
My guess: he is in a junior or technical college. He is taking entry level courses that review material he already knows or with which he has a degree of familiarity. He isn't learning all this material; the majority is stuff he has already encountered.
