    Re: To LOOSE or not to LOOSE, that is the question.

    and another thing!!! Nobody appreciates using onomatopoeia in their writing. What really pisses me off is that 9/10 people cannot recite the helping verbs in less than 10 seconds. Man, proper slang usage is also dropping at a rate of 7%/day in the suburbs. This world is going downhill I'm tellin' ya.

    Because little yellow smiley faces just reak of mature older person that is advanced in the world of spelling and grammar. :grin: :grin:

    I read my posts after I post it and there are always errors. Sometimes I even edit the big ones. Sometimes I say screw it I have work to do. I would much rather have someone raising a post count by mispelling words and making a point then some one who just gives a one word response or an emoticon.

    In the age of spell checkers there is no reason for poor spelling. :razz:
    I usually proof read my post after I submit it. If I see an error I use the edit button to correct it. Maybe some of those post whores in their zeal to get their 40 posts per day are just too busy posting to try and look literate. After all its about numbers isn't it. :razz: :lol:
    When I see a poorly spelled post I usually think :roll: "another 15 yr old giving testament to the failure of public education".
    :razz: :wink: :smile:
    "Proof read" is one word. Get with the program RK!

    (I just couldn't resist) :lol:

    I hate it when new people come here and dog somebody about their spelling; it is kind of low.

    But, I realize that not everybody is as good of a speller as others may be. My best friend is one of the smartest guys I know. But, he cannot spell worth a pooh.

    It bugs me when I read all the gibberish that belongs in a "teenie" chat room; that just gets annoying and it takes away some of the class from the site.

    The "one or two word lacking content" posts are becoming very popular around here lately. :???:

    NOT TOO LOOSE...because if it's TOO LOOSE, then there's no friction...which defeats the purpose...not that I run into that problem myself!
    So, what you're saying is that it may not be that long...but it sure fills the sidewalls?
    I didn't say anything about length...no problems there either if you must know! :lol:

    Does anyone else find it extremely annoying when people use the word LOOSE when they mean LOSE? It happens all the time. Please stop with this blatant disregard for the English language before I loose my mind! :beathorse:
    Yeah, it's just bothersome! It's like homonyms....too, to, and two....there, their and they're...people just don't know how to use them! We need better English teachers!
    You like ho-mo what??? :lol:[i]

    I am with you on this 100 percent. I try not to be too picky on here (I am a copy editor at a rather large paper), but there are a few things that drive me nuts:
    We lose the game ... not loose
    We have and OFFENSE AND DEFENSE ... not offence and defence, it is not surrounding a d*mn yard
    The word is spelled definitely, not definately
    I know I know, this is overly picky, blah blah blah, but those are DEFINITELY my peeves (spelled right?) :lol:
