    May I be the first to say intelligence isn`t always how well you can spell or use grammar.

    May I be the first to say that `well educated` is related to those things?

    (Also, question mark.)

    They hyphen really should be used, though.

    I`m sure she will be afraid to post in the future because of this.

    @fausts

    Sure they`re related, but intelligence doesn`t equate to being perfect at grammar, either. One could be awful at grammar but exceptional at mathematics and still be intelligent. Likewise, this person could be quite apt at speaking eloquently but poor at writing. Plus, being grammar police just makes you look like an ass. :P

    I think hyphen is ok to use. My feeling is that in that case it`s more of a stylistic choice.

    I wonder where she got that over-inflated sense of self-esteem. Where, oh, where...oh, I don`t know...let me see...could it have been...GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS?

    adverb-verb combinations used as a singular adjective should be hypenated when used before the subject; i.e.: well-hung commenter, brightly-painted house, etc.

    Seriously, do you really have to make every post about your hatred for anything supported by the government?

    @OswegoWriter: You do NOT hyphenate a unit modifier when the adverb ends in "ly."

    Let me guess, government school?

    I`m constantly amazed at the number of people who leave out the hyphen in descriptive word combos like "well-educated". If her sentence was "I`m well educated" there would be no hyphen. But she essentially said "I`m a well-educated woman" so a hyphen is necessary because the two words TOGETHER modify "woman". The hyphen joins them together.

    The hyphen is perfectly correct for a compound adjective. Don`t correct someone else unless you know what you are talking about.

    Right, unless it involves a word ending in "ly."

    "This is an example of an incorrectly-hyphenated modifier."

    randomxnp beat me to it. The hyphen is needed for well-educated, because it is an adjective.

    HiEv, I didn`t miss your point; you didn`t have one.

    I don`t make all my posts about the complete failure of government attempting to do crap it has no business doing. This just happens to be an example of it -- crappy government schools that teach kids how to feel good about themselves even if they don`t know how to wipe their asses in the dark.

    Now, I will grant you that the finest education in the world won`t fix a low IQ. You, for instance, could go through a Harvard Ph.D. program, and you`d still come out a drooling, fapping idiot.

    @OldOllie: Just because you don`t agree with my point, doesn`t mean I didn`t have a point. Obviously I *did* have a point, because you proceeded to argue against said point.

    Furthermore, this is *not* an example of "the complete failure of crappy government schools", because there is no, zero, zip, zilch evidence that this person went to a public school.

    Even if that was the case, anecdotes do not equal evidence. Good evidence requires many points of unbiased data and something more or less equivalent to compare it to.

    To make this simple for you: this post doesn`t prove jack about public or private education. Your attempts to claim that it does only demonstrate how ignorant that *you* are about the rules of evidence and how much you need to constantly bring up your pet peeves even when it`s irrelevant to the joke.

    You aren`t proving anything, you`re just being annoying.
