I write Hate not tragedies

...You need the following lesson in the English language.

Mute: Refraining from producing speech or vocal sound.

Moot: Of no practical importance; irrelevant.

In conversation it is bad enough, but excusable since you can't be exactly sure and you just think to yourself, did that person actually just say the issue is mute? Then three hours later when you're brushing your teeth, you finally say to yourself, yeah I think he did say it was mute. In writing, on the other hand, there is never equivocation, you are without a doubt an idiot. People and sounds are mute, like when I mute the phone when you are speaking, put you on speaker phone and then make fun of you to everyone in the room. Issues, topics, statements are moot, like when you say something, it's completely moot (i.e. pointless) because I already hate you.
