  • Pretty funny. I'm a terrible grammar nazi. I have to constantly refrain from correcting people 'cause as I've discovered, people HATE being corrected even though I consider it a service to mankind in general, and truly mean it as such... I consider it a favor that I'm helping them from looking like a dumbass in the future. So with every "Defence" and "loose" that drives me crazy, there's the "Their, they're and there", along with the "to, too and two" thing, along with "had went", and "needs washed"... And on and on and on. So i've just thrown up my arms, knowing I'm never gonna change anything, and just try to ignore it. I'm pretty sure I missed my calling as a newspaper or magazine editor. Not my fault that the only thing I got good grades on in school was english. I'm not completely innocent either. Sometimes my sentence structure sucks, but even after I proofread my posts and think it could be better, I tend to just blow it off 'cause I realize I'm in a football forum and nobody gives a shit... Plus I'm pretty lazy overall. :roll: :lol:

  • Doesn't stop me, Blue; though I'm guessing there are a fair number of people who wish it would, lol. I approve, also.

  • Well Bill I'm pretty sure you've been in a comma/apostrophe most of your life.

    :D

    I started proof reading my posts recently, catch so many errors. In my case I've always been to wordy. Amazing how rereading your own musings send you screaming to the delete button.

    Jasen I'll bet you do that too.

    Bill,,,isn't it needs warshed?

  • A quick search through my grammar knowledge reveals that three consecutive commas doesn't mean anything. Next time you proofread your post, fix your ellipses.

    It's actually three periods. It's like a little pause before running a sentence a little longer... like this. Kinda like a comma but I hate too many commas in a sentence. Just my little writing style.

  • The "interobang" has to be my favorite punctuation mark. I wish like hell it would gain popularity.
