    lambjam, I luffs you. I luffs you with all my heart and I want to be your new best friend and talk until the end of time about the kind of murderous rage one feels upon hearing 'irregardless' (not to mention 'ironical') and the misuse of the apostrophe and how many different ways there are to pronounce 'ough' and, oh, so many things!

    What a lovely thread to wake up to!

    Gladly! I'm a big fan of the semicolon, although I admit I only started using them regularly in the past couple of years. This is a lovely site, I think the most important rule is to use them after a complete sentence. So "I went to the show; my favourite ride was the dodgems." would be fine. You write a complete sentence, then everything after the colon enhances what you wrote before it. Does that make sense?

    I think it's safe to say that the worst mistakes I've seen have consistently come from real estate signs and advertisements. When we sold our house a few years ago I was so pedantic about checking everything before it was published!

    Oh, my dream date. I'll be there with BFF t-shirts, marker pens (for adding missing apostrophes to shop signs) and white out (for removing superfluous ones).

    P.S. Ironical... Can we also talk about the constant misuse of "ironic"? To get us started we could listen to Alanis Morissette for examples of what not to say.

    hehe i bet i am one of the posters who drives you all insane

    I actually HATE bad spelling and pronunciation but when it comes to typing, because I think so fast and I generally don't have a great deal of time to spare when I'm online or I'm just too tired, I generally don't bother correcting my errors or using correct grammer.

    So, when you read my posts and want to tear your hair out (or shuld i say tair your hairs out lol) I'm sorry

    But, I HATE HATE HATE the whole he's/his fiasco...OH MY GOD
    And I HATE YOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! "do yous have anything on tonight" NO NO NO!

    Funny story, a friend of a friend of mine got a tattoo across her back, nice and big, something "deep & poetic" about losing faith or something..anywho she spelt "lose" as "LOOSE" too funny!!! I cannot believe the tattooist didnt warn her haha!

    Another that gets to me is FIL says "MRMA" ITS N RMA!!!

    And DF always says "caculating"... grrr

    ETA: Oh and yes, I too hate the congraDulations/congraDs....DUR
