    And yes it's definitely rooves. I'm amazed that you saw a sign that was actually correct, to be honest!

    Lambjam - I also struggle with the emoticon punctuation conundrum every day.
    Stupid bloody iPhone. Made it into 2 words.

    Within the punctuation, like so ?
    Or outside?

    I struggle with this every day (not everyday as I see all too often, there is a difference people!).
    I don't know! I keep finding myself using it INSTEAD of punctuation, which has to be the wrongest thing since I used the word wrongest

    There! See! No punctuation! I am officially not impressed with myself.

    There is a kids' show on Channel 9 called 'Kitchen Whiz' and only yesterday they displayed a fact onscreen about pumpkins...but they spelt 'pumpkins' incorrectly! They had it as 'pumkins'!! I almost died!

    I'm sure someone has already mentioned this, but my biggest gripe is with the incorrect usage of 'to' and 'too'. I really can't understand how people reach adulthood with the inability to spell. My nieces are my friends on Facebook and on a daily basis I am horrified by their illiteracy!

    Oh..and I don't know who George is but he has absolutely nothing to do with the word 'gorgeous'! I so often see it spelt 'georgeous' or something similar.

    I wonder how many people will be so worried about their grammar and spelling and won't bother posting in BH?

    They don't seem too worried from what I've noticed

    There are plenty of other opinions flying around BH. I know for a fact that some members regard FF as negligence and blame caesareans for the demise of society. The fact that I've done both of these things doesn't stop me posting away to my heart's content; BH has so many members, some will identify with certain threads and some will identify with others.

    Why would they be reading this thread then? Seriously, everyone has a vent every now and again. For some people, spelling and grammar is important. It can be really irritating to see repeated common mistakes and I'm glad we can have a vent here.
