Ian and Mark don't generally respond to posts that have an element of negativity - Mark did a while back, but I guess he just got tired of it.
I don't think Darryl puke-talks intentionally, I think he's got a deviated septum and something wrong with this vocal cords - I have no way of knowing. Ian mentioned that Darryl was brain damaged once, and he wasn't being funny, so it's possible that Darryl was in a pretty bad accident and that may account for his voice and speaking mannerisms. "Brain Damage" is the only thing I can think of that could explain his incessant use of the phrase "too where" - it really makes me sad that Ian has picked up this bad habit along with the trailing "tsss" sound that he hangs on the end of words for no discernible reason.
Ian and Mark obviously understand this - they once talked about not allowing a specific caller on the air because they said it sounded like he was talking with marbles in his mouth - and it's true, I believe I know which caller they were referring to and he does good job of speaking pretty clearly and he doesn't breath into the microphone anymore. So I can't understand why they would want Darryl; someone who talks over people with half-baked ideas delivered with an air of superiority to be on air much less call radio stations - If that voice called my radio station (I don't have one) and said "I'm a talk show hostsssss to where...you should take my show" - I'd respond; "Good luck with that".
As far as Stephanie's saliva sounds go - it wasn't an issue until Ian bumped the audio quality of the netcast up - I don't hear it when listening on the radio. Ian doesn't seem to understand that a higher bit-rate doesn't make his voice sound any better; it just makes every pop and click of saliva that much more gut-churningly noticeable...there's a difference between a great radio voice and a crackly mid-register voice; Leo Laporte of TWIT.TV has a magnificent radio voice - he doesn't need to crank up the low end or do the intense-whisper thing to maximize the crackle. Mark has a fine radio voice just as it is - all the other hosts do too except Darryl and Ian. Stephanie has a fine voice - but her personality irks me so badly that I refuse to listen to her voice.
If I had any artistic talent at all, I would take the hilariously mispronounced things Darryl says and make posters or shirts; One shirt might say: "Darryl Perry says; 'Never take a plea dill'" and it would have a picture of a jar of pickles with one pickle left in the bottom, pleading to be left alone. At least once a week he mispronounces something so badly that it sounds like a joke.
I'm a grumpy person - when I don't like stuff, I like to vent. I am the nicest person anyone might ever meet in person, but I'll nit-pick the heck out of something in a message board. No matter how mean I may be - I have nothing but love for all of the hosts of FTL...except Stephanie...I just want to see her naked, but only if she didn't open her mouth.
