    Word Association Thread annoyance

    Every once in a while I like to contribute to the word association thread.

    Is it just me or does anyone else find it annoying that some people either can't or won't understand the basic premise of the thread and use multiple words in their posts?

    These semantic games are meant to use only one word at a time, yet so often someone has posted using two or more words. It's WORD association not WORDS! Using multiple words or a phrase completely takes away the purpose of the game.

    Are people being lazy, greedy uncreative or are they just being downright stupid?

    Who cares? It's just a silly game.

    Are people(crowd) being(existing) lazy(slothful) greedy(miser) uncreative(boring) or are they(them) just(fair) being(human) downright(upright) stupid(dense) ?(!)



    Some folks just don't get it I guess. Maybe this will help.

    Guilty as charged. Glad it rated a thread. Maybe I should just grab up my things and leave. I'll be over here in the WORDS association thread. :)

    Ahhhh...One of the aforementioned Multiple Word Offenders with enough guts to come forward and make an admission of guilt.

    Because you have realized the error of your ways....you may unpack your things and stay.

    Yeah, I didn't search each page to find multiple posts.

    Let me guess glockrocker, when you did multiple word postings you probably posted
