Thread Name: When your luthier disses your baby
Subject: RE: When your luthier disses your baby
It's not the word disrespect that pisses us off, that's a real word. What pisses us English majors off is lazy gangsters who shorten the word to dis or diss. Like the idiots who shortened "raising children" by turning the noun "parent" into a verb. Yuck. What's next? Will "driving" become "carring?" Are all you folks "musicking?"
