Okay guys....

I figured it was time for me to try and prove you guys wrong. I am going to make everything I post as gramatically (sp) correct as I can without looking into a dictionary. So if you see an error in my grammer, that is not a minnor error and is something I should have caught, then I will be giving out a prize. The prize will be a surprize, so dont ask until you win.





This post is the start of this thing, so posts before this time do not count.



And a rule i am making up is; i do not have to capitalize I.

Spelling aside, "minnor", "surprize", "dont" etc., I'm going with the bolded sentence above as a run-on.

You'd better be careful, I was a professional copy editor for six years...I can find stuff wrong that you wouldn't even KNOW was wrong!

If you keep changing the rules as we go, no one will ever "win" your prize.

What's the point of asking us to correct you if you're just going to make up your own rules?

By the way, there is no shame in using a dictionary to ensure you have used the correct spelling for the intended use of a word.

Come on Bull...Grammar IS how you use the words. That is punctuation and sentence structure.

From Dictionary.com: Second definition - "The system of inflections, syntax, and word formation of a language."

You can blow off people pointing out all of your spelling errors when you ask folks to call out your grammatical errors, but you have got to take your lumps on sentence structure.

You know we got nothin' but love for a fellow rider but you're just ASKING for abuse with this thread.

Good to make the effort to correct the grammatic homicide you commit every post. Good luck in this, hope the game doesnt get too expensive!

A. Type into WORD first and let it get you as close as it can with spell check and grammar check.
B. www.dictionary.com
C. Dictate to someone and let them type.
D. Sleeping with a dictionary under your pillow worked for the Beaver! (Leave it to Beaver T.V. show, not either of the furry or shaved kind.)
