Re: Li'l Technical Note.
I am seeing this a lot on the reg lately. People correcting the grammar and then holding lengthy discussions over the pro/con and complex development of the english language. Are your lives really that dull?
I assume the people doing this have recently gone through some sort of classes for this or maybe its a new trend to be anal. English is a very interesting school topic because the only guarantee you have is that you are wrong. English is a language and such a well used and dynamic language that it is constantly changing in words, meaning and use.
If you cant understand the meaning of the article then that would be a valid case for people to kick up a little fuss and ask for the meaning to be explained. But the joy of using simpler language (that not used by walking dictionaries) is that even if it doesnt follow your particular set of strict rules you can still understand it.
I know I will now bring down the EDL (English Defenders of Language) but if it is valid to comment on the boards about something so stupid (instead of using the corrections link if your really sheldon cooper) then it must be as valid to voice my frustration at reading some whiny ass nonsense that it should be "its" not "it's" nor "tits".
Does anyone else get a little irritated at these comments or is it just me?
