I said that I was on alot today did I not, and I didn't mean I only find time at highschool, I meant I just find time period to work on Basic, I have a Palm Pilot which I can transfer my .txt files to and work on.  On another note, here is another good saying: "Only geniuses contradict themselves", laugh out loud.  I don't care if your in highschool to and enjoy tracking people's times online down just to prove a useless point. Well I'm off for the night.  Good night everyone.

Axipher, if you consider that "flaming", that means you were never truely flamed in this forum Wink

C'mon, take it easy. I can guarantee that reading "u" instead of "you" it's quite annoying. Really quite annoying, specially for us, non English speakers, 'cause we see a letter "U" which doesn't sound like "you" in most of our languages.

Spelling and grammar are important, really important, at least for me. And this time the main reason is not that there are many non English speakers around, but just that spelling and grammar have been ruled for something. It's easier to read, among other things.

You say you have very little time to spend in the forums. I'll tell you something: if you spend more time double-reading your posts to make sure they are correctly written, you'll refrain us from interpreting your post incorrectly. If you write it bad and we don't get it and reply something you don't need/you were not asking, you'll have to post again explaining yourself, and that will take way more time than just reviewing your original post for clarity.

I'm nobody to speak for grammar, as I tend to make lots of mistakes, but in my case it's understandable 'cause I began learning English when I was 10, and I haven't practiced much except from written stuff in forums and IM. But you are using your native language, so you should take care Smiley

Sad fact is that native english speakers often talk worse than non-native english speakers..



For example, my 10" Scan Sound speakers speak pretty good, whereas my 5"  Roland speakers can only produce a faint tap on bass hits..




What?

Well, the axis of the frustum inclination tends to overachieve the unrequired tube veolocity of an unladen swallow on a coconut binge.

But what if the swallow were to grip it...

It's not a matter of where he grips it, it's simple weight ratio, a 5 ounce bird cannot carry a 1 pound coconut.

What if there were 2 swallows?

King Arthur and company walk off

Anyway, I've said sorry before, and its "especially", not "specially", and if you are so worried about non-English speakers, then using "because" would be better then " 'cause ".

Well someone made a few mistakes in their post, so if people correct me, I should be allowed to correct others.

Did you read at all where he said he was a non-native English speaker?  Or maybe look at his location?

Either way, he used the word " 'cause" which would confuse someone, but the apostrophe at the beginning of a word usually tends to indicate that something normally should be there.  This is not a very  uncommon word structure for the English language.
I'm sure you've seen the show "punk'd" or heard someone say "ol' " before.


Also don't you think you should wait more than a day after you learned how to use grammar and spelling before you start jumping on the grammar nazi bandwagon?

Can we act a little more grown up here?  Does anyone want to continue this text adventure or not?

I dun wanna gwo up. No! NO!  :wink:

Axipher, how dare you go correcting someone who isn't a native English speaker. Three posts before you were saying "i don need to luk and check my gramar", now you're correcting someone else because they said 'cause instead of because? First of all, 'cause is perfectly natural English. We aren't expecting you to write an English paper on every topic you post about. We are just asking you to be more courteous in your posts, and show some respect to those that can't read english perfectly.

By the way, Nathan spelled two words "incorrectly", out of what, 150? Compared to your typical 10 words out of 20, this is perfectly acceptable. Especially since you know english better then she does.

All of you know that rereading what you type is the easiest way to pick up on your own mistakes right?  Or if you're really lazy you can copy and paste into Microsoft Word and use spell check, though this won't make you any better at spelling it right in the first place.  One other thing, if you really don't have time to type 1 post just wait till later.

unladen=not carrying anything at all....
