    Do you have different accents for different people?

    I was just thinking that sometimes I imply voice tones such as anger or light-hearted laughter onto what posters say as I read it in my head...

    Surely I am not the only one that does this...

    I used to when I first came onto the forums, because I used to read the poster's name and location first. But now I don't bother really...

    I tend to read them all in a slightly crazed South African Dutch/Afrikaans accent.

    Think Joss ACkland in Lethal Weapon 2....

    I read MSN conversations in the accent of the person I am talking to if I have spoken to them but when I read forum posts its usually not in an accent at all.

    I read everything as if Pirates were saying it

    For the simple reason Pirates have cooler accents than anyone else

    I use a Greek redneck accent, it makes posts less boring.

    Depends if I know the posters location or not...

    Birmingham area = Ozzy Osbourne
    Yorkshire = Alan Smith
    North East England = Ross Noble
    Central Belt = 'Big Man' from Chewin' the Fat
    Stoke on Trent = Lemmy from Motorhead
    Wales = Tom Jones
    Ireland = Seamus McFly

    Doesn't apply to ladies obviously.

    I believe everything should be read in Benders 'King' accent on here. Just for kicks, old spice.
