    There is no such word as noone

    Just an observation as I have seen this used many times on various sites on the web. My brain still doesn't process it properly so I always do a double take as it looks so wrong. It is "no one" or "no-one". Before you accuse me of being the grammar police, I in no way endorse any government agency telling anybody how to write and in no way think that you do not have the right to write as properly or improperly as you would like. It merely looks weird to me.

    Growing up I was constantly being admonished by some teacher telling me that ain't isn't a word. My folks told me she was probably a yankee.

    I thought noone was someone, but I guess someone could be anybody.

    And here I thought one of the junior moderators was tasked with correcting our spelling and grammar. Now where's my list of other things that bug me.

    There is no such word as noone
    That one will be the least of your aggravation if you spend any time at all on internet forums. I'm not a grammar and spelling Nazi myself but I was raised by them.

    Yes sir! I wasn't expecting this to be considered world news. Just a small rant, hopefully in the right sub-forum. There is plenty of garbage going on in our world that I could discuss, too. Just saw "noone" multiple times today and thought I'd see if I was the only one that noticed it.
