Dude, I said that fencing isn't very politically provocative
. I meant that if you were ever to partake in associations or organisations dealing with politically hot stuff, like anti-war issues, veganism, unionism, etc, you might experience a different side of your government.
I never said that fencing is unsophisticated or a sign of low education. I myself go to the gym regularly, and that's light-years away from the sophistication of fencing.
And if you think it's "making fun" of somebody to point out a typo, you need to brush up your mocking skills. Spelling has little to do with education. People with dyslexia can still be remarkably well educated.
But hey, if you want to quibble, we could still have a spelling bee just you and me, and then we could laugh at the loser.
Edit: Here's the passage, in all its i-mockerish glory, that I was referring to:
And yeah, thanks for the fencing put-down. Next time you might want to spell "provocative" correctly when you're trying to make me feel uneducated. Mortal Kombat isn't a good reference for learning English.
