I’ll Take A Regular, Please

As dangerous as it is to blame something on someone else, or declare innocence for a bad act, lest your words be taken out of context, making it look like it is the accuser commanding a bad act, or admitting to one – it is even more dangerous to do so with irregular verbs that don’t conjugate past/present with an “-ed”, or vowel shift, because there’s more room for confusion of time, and also dangerous to do so with words that don’t conjugate singular/plural “-s/-es” in subject-verb agreement – in addition to the normal confusion of subject/object reversal and instruction/prohibition reversal that can often be part of the trick used by obfuscationists. In effect, enforced silences, censorship, or outright skinjobbing can make your innocent and just statements into a paraiah for even REPEATING a something related to an enforceable negative command, or curse, so don’t bother copying your elder’s speech until you’re sure they don’t get in to too much trouble for talking, and if so, find out if you can teach your elders to be better, in a crowd like you keep your peers in, for peer support. Foul language isn’t funny, so I would appreciate it if you took the following examples as a RESPONSIBLE PERSON would, to make the situation of SPEECH, and the related enforced REALITY to be good for all involved. The ban hammer is mighty, beware.

1. Statement
2. Obfuscation 1
3. Obfuscation 2
I don’t eat poo.
”    ”    Eat poo!
I    ”    eat poo.
I saw Andy eat poo.
”   ”        ”   Eat poo!
I   ”        ”   eat poo.
Andy ate poo.
No trick, because eat/ate past/present subject/object vowel change disagreement.
I didn’t shit.
I    ”     shit.
”    ”     Shit!
I saw Andy shit.
I   ”       ”     shit.
”   ”       ”    Shit!
Andy shit.
    ”    Shit!
(This is past tense, and there is *THAT MUCH* more room for trickery as a result of the increase in scope of the verb, since there is no form of the past tense, like “Shitted” or “Shat”)
