Only time will tell. (No pun intended)
Think about it though assuming someone was a time traveler from a world similar to John Titors it would only make sense that they would have bad grammar actually no it would be suspicious if they did have good grammar. In that kind of world you are either fighting or working to get money / food / supplies there is no time for school or studies they may know the basics of writing and obviously can speak but, they wouldnt have attended school unless their town was unique in that wayI agree that many time travelers (hoaxer or not) have pretty bad grammar.
I wonder if we should expect one of the real John Titors to show up here on Paranormalis. What do you think? Paranormalis is the 6th site showing up on Google when you search "Time travel forum".
What like compile a list of works which are misspelled then attempt to 'read between the lines' That's a interesting theory but, do we have a full accurate copy of the original post?Have you considered that various TT'ers "poor" grammar and spelling might be purposeful?
No, that is not what I mean. In my continuing research into time travelers visiting our time, I have discovered several that are indeed telling the truth about their profession and are not merely 14 year old hoaxers. I have also found it unusual that for the most part and with only a few exceptions, their use of language is strained. I have also discovered use of code words and cover terms in use by these time travelers. I am merely putting forward the theory that sometimes, it serves a purpose to intentionally make mistakes in one's writing. This strategy is well known in some circles.What like compile a list of works which are misspelled then attempt to 'read between the lines' That's a interesting theory but, do we have a full accurate copy of the original post?
