    i dont understand what this is all about i mean some people don't like to take the time to check spelling and such and who cares if a sentence is too long or not just read the crap and be happy that someone besides you is alive in this world cause we could be zombies trying to eat your brains so we could be smart like you cause they say you are what you eat so maybe then we could all spell and all but we'd be zombies so it wouldn't really matter anyway cause we wouldn't want to write anything except bring more brains you know and soon our hands and all would fall off from the zombie rot and we'd just be like parts crawling around and all without not fingers or toes or feet or nothing just a torso and then just a head like that knight in Monty Python's the holy grail who got all cut into pieces but still wanted to fight but we wouldn't want to fight we would only want to eat brains cause we would be zombies not knights and zombies don't fight with swords and all they just bite and eat brains and guts and say ahhhhh ohhhhh brains more brains but knights say stuff like hello my lady and there is no room for balls in these metal underwear but zombies dont say stuff like that.

    Another pet peeve..

    If anyone is still paying attention, here's another pet peeve:

    English Lesson 4: Correct Use of To, Too, and Two

    English Lesson 4: Correct Use of To, Too, and Two
    April 5th, 2008

    english-usage-to-too-two.jpgConfusion among the words to, too, and two ranks almost as highly as errors involving it’s and its in terms of overall prevalence. Among the three, the word to is usually the most commonly used and has many different meanings that can be found when we look up the word in a dictionary. In most cases, the word is used as a preposition but there are a few less common instances where it can be used as an adverb. Here are some of the most important meanings of the word to, followed by examples of correct usage:

    * toward, in the direction of, or becoming closer in distance
    1. We went to the store.
    2. The advisor turned to me and explained the idea.
    * against, in contact with
    1. His neck was pressed to the ground by the boots of fascist pigs.
    * concerning, regarding
    1. We are waiting for a reply to my email.
    * constituting, composing
    1. There are four quarts to a gallon.
    * indication of an infinitive verb form
    1. We wanted to go.
    2. The investors were looking to buy.
    * awaking into consciousness
    1. After being in a coma for several days, the patient finally came to.
    * move into a closed position
    1. Please push the door to so I can get some sleep.
    * a specific nautical usage meaning “into the wind”
    1. The captain shouted, “Heave to and lower the anchor!”

    Meanwhile, the word too is relatively easy to understand because there are only two basic meanings:

    * also, in addition to
    1. After reading about how much money could be made on the Internet, she wanted to set up a website too.
    * excessively, more than is necessary
    1. Putting too many graphics or advertisements on a web page may slow down loading times and discourage visitors from reading your content.
    2. As a libertarian Internet marketer, you can never have too much money, too many referrals, or too much freedom.

    Finally, two is the easiest of the three words to understand because it simply refers to the number that is the sum of 1 + 1:

    1. Two income streams are better than one, although having more than two is better still because we can diversify our assets and minimize risk.

    Now for some examples of incorrect usage, followed by the corrected forms:

    Incorrect: he seems to scarred to ask you and he wants you too hurry up and ask him out and he is jus tryin to make you do that a lot quicker by actin lik he is losing interest — user “wolfeman8″ on Yahoo! Answers

    Correct: He seems too scared to ask you and probably wants you to hurry up and ask him out first. By acting like he is losing interest, he is hoping to persuade you to ask him out much sooner.

    Incorrect: Do you think I waste to much money? — Question asked by user “Animal lover” on Yahoo! Answers

    Correct: Do you think I waste too much money?

    Incorrect: The solution is too make sure that any data being return is encoded as UTF-8. — Joshua Eichorn of blog.joshuaeichorn.com

    Correct: The solution is to make sure that any data being returned is encoded as UTF-8.

    Incorrect: The cost was 8 cents and her father told her that was two much money.

    Correct: The cost was 8 cents and her father told her that was too much money.

    The topic for next week is still open for discussion, but at this point I am leaning toward either covering then vs. than or addressing the issue of apostrophe abuse, which includes the widespread but incorrect use of apostrophes in plural nouns.

    Another good one to cover would be "there, their, they're".

    Yup. it would.
    I don't mean to sound crabby either by the way. I just think that a communication forum based on the written word works better if we all TRY to strive for clarity.
    No reflection on anyone's personality, education, or what have you.
    Obviously, I'M far from perfect!

    Half the time I don't know what anyone is trying to say. With all the improper punctuation, poor spelling, and abbreviations it's hard to understand at times.

    I think you make a valid point Arko.

    Another one that can drive you crazy is "loose Lose".
