    Remove your caps lock button. Get rid of it, maybe burn it. Sacrifice it on the alter to the gods of abnoxious forum behaviour. If you were someone who routinely used all caps, stab yourself with it.

    Thank you..icon_smile.gif

    it would be nice to note the differences between:

    a) your (possessive) & you're (you are)

    b) there, their, & they're (they are)

    c) there's: there is (singular) & there're: there are (plural)

    d) further (development of a point or thought) & farther (an increase in a unit of distance)

    e) to (transition) & too (quantity)

    f) its (possessive) & it's (it is)

    g) who (generalized other as well as unspecified individual) & whom (specified individual; ungeneralized)

    h) i.e., (roughly translates to " in other words ") & e.g., (roughly translates to " example(s) given/for example ")

    i) who's (who is) & whose (possessive)

    I hope this helps the forums a bit.

    I agree. Every person should know the difference between your and you're.

    e.g. exempli gratia

    i.e. id est

    Learn to use commas.

    Search the forums before posting an identical thread. 90% of the topics have been discussed at length before.

    I hope this helps the forums a bit.

    Exhorting others to a firmer grasp of the nuances of the English language is a fine and wonderful endeavor. Bitching about them on a thread, however, is not.

    We have an established Forum Law concerning this: Caslon's Forum Fail Law #2.
    To wit:

    Whereas thread postings are quick, extemporaneous remarks, and

    Whereas it is a common misspelling phenomenon to mistype certain words in haste, such as: there/they're/their and your/you're for mental reasons yet unexplained,

    It is an automatic FAIL to cite such a misspelling as if it reflects on the spelling ability, intelligence, or education of the author of such typos.

    Yes, yes, and thank you.
    Also: "conversate" will never be a real word.

    For a good read, check out George Orwell's "Politics and the English Language c. 1946. I'm thinking his brain would be projectile vomiting Linda Blair-style these days.
