I can cope with misplaced apostrophes... It's the use of 'less' when one means 'fewer' that kills me.....

Seconded.

Criticism of spelling/grammar/punctuation on here seems to be a bit of a faux-pas though, which seems a mite incongruous if you ask me.

Don't let them get away with it!

I fucking hate it when it's down to two people of The Weakest Link, and Anne Robinson fails to use the correct expression "The Weaker Link".

I turned on the TV just before six this evening, and the first thing I heard, from Robinson was: "The correct answer is: Fascism". Priceless.

But to return to the correctitude thingy, it's all well and good going on about how it doesn't matter, how it's overly pedantic, how you should be worrying about fucking poverty or something instead, but the thing is, GETTING IT WRONG MAKES YOU LOOK STUPID.
It really does.

In clarification of what I said in the other thread, you shouldn't start a new thread for any old shit that you haven't thought about and are unwilling to write a decent post about. Posting a lazy response in an already existing thread is fine as long as you don't go over the top, but I would imagine that if you start any new amazingly lazy and uninspired threads like this you will be labelled a troll, which is someone who is deliberately wasting everyone's time, and people will never take you seriously when you want to talk about something you are interested in. Your poor use of English in the very title of the thread just goes to show doesn't it.  Don't start any more threads until you have some sort of justification. If you do start another crap one now or tomorrow, basically everyone will think you're an absolute knobcheese and you ARE a troll.

 I'm sure everyone's first few posts are a bit crap until it's been made clear that a new thread has to be justified, so please just make sure you know what you're doing. Go on,post in other people's threads, you'll find it fun and you'll get the jist of things.

To be fair to the lad the first few threads I ever posted were absolute garbage and got no replies..... or less.

But yes, posting in other people's threads is definitely a very good idea before braving one of your own. I hasten to add that I'd be perfectly willing to accept dekionplexis' existance if he ever ever ever bothered to reply in anybody else's posts.

That sounded neither patronising, nor spasticated to me, it sounded like a good telling off.

The topic may have been crap, but it was nice to have the opportunity to spleen about people's illiteracy. I'd like to have started a thread about that myself but I didn't want people to hate me.

"sore bottom mum" is a troll, also posting as "The white van gogh."  Please ignore it.
