    Bravo! Blackbird, I fear if you were not here, well...things would be a lot less grammatically correct.

    :D

    Although this is supposed to be somewhat "tongue-in-cheek", it would be nice if some actually took it to heart.:p

    Well, at least you spelled "grammar" right.:p

    I didn't aim the post at anyone in particular, but if someone thinks it applies to them, it probably does.;)

    WR, it would be nice if more people expressed their appreciation for proper grammar and did it often. That way, I wouldn't come across as a "spelling nazi".

    By the way, it's kinda sad when people, even in jest, think someone's being an extremist when they're asking for the minimum.:(

    Which sight? ;)

    Cacography is the word of the day, every day, on TB.

    Which brings me to the following points which may apply. Who are you talking about, what are you implying and for whom would this are article be relevant? Whose cacography are we discussing here?
    What the heck?

    What me worry ...

    1) Whoever out there still needs help figuring out their pronouns.

    2) I'm implying that they need to learn, eh?

    3) See #1, plus all of us who could use a refresher.

    4) See #1 and #3.

    5) Wouldn't it be "what is the heck?:D

    6)Potrzebie!

    Ok then:

    1) Its - short for "it is", so it should be "it's".
    2) to - should be too.
    3) their - short for "they are", so it should be "they're".
    4) your - short for "you are", so it should be "you're".
    5) sight - should be "site".


    So, when do I get my... hey, wait, you tricked me!! :D

    Arthritic brain and fingers arise, it's time to typo again!

    Or just more cawfee, as we say here in Rhody.

    Seriously, I am very much on your side with this,
    regardless of my ADD and typo rate. :D

    Don't forget: Its.. I did well, not i did good. that bothers me!
     
  15. Well I know that a preposition is a really bad thing to end a sentence with...

    :D

    No, really it's the misuse of "your", "you're", "their", "there" and "they're" that drives me mad. It's not like it's even difficult!!!

    And another thing that annoys me: people who start sentences with conjunctions and overuse exclamation marks!!!!!
     
  16. Mongo not understand.

  18. "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?"

    "Hookin' up words and phrases and clauses"

    *repeats until stuck in head*
