I got this sentence off an email:
"For all, K.I.S.S. it next time (anyway you want to interpret KISS and it is fine, enjoy)"
You guys have any idea what K.I.S.S. means?
Julian   Saturday, May 08, 2004, 15:49 GMT
K.I.S.S stands for "keep it simple, stupid," or more politely, "keep it short & simple."

Taking the fist meaning into account, is it kinda calling someone a stupid, or calling the idea or whatever stupid. I need to know that because I think I'm about to kick some ass.
Julian   Saturday, May 08, 2004, 19:37 GMT
It's not "kinda calling someone a stupid" it IS calling someone stupid. But the expression has become such a common catch-phrase (especially in management seminars and self-improvement books) that nobody takes offense to it. In fact, it's become a slogan for simplifying your life, your interpersonal relationships, and the way you conduct business. So I advise you to relax and not kick some ass. :)

fake Smith,
it's " I'm you and you are me" not " you are I". I say youre fake Smith, because the true Smith wouldn't make such a mistake. Right true Smith?

I've written what Genaral_Ricardo said. Some grammarians say "It's I, not It's me". What's happening with "you're me, not you're I?

Personally I accept both forms. "It is (me as a noun, not a pronoun) or (I as a noun, not pronoun).

My correct way is: "It, am I? or It I am."

I might take offence if someone thought that they needed to resort to such a jingoistic cliché to get their message across especially one that condescendingly calls me stupid.
Willy   Thursday, May 13, 2004, 02:24 GMT
Jim, you are the only man that makes cliché. I'm facing the real wolrd. Polish your Polish accent in English.
General_Ricardo   Thursday, May 13, 2004, 03:24 GMT
BTW, what's cliche mean?
