    Bro, where were you when I was having an absolute melt down over the entire Forum seemingly not knowing the difference between he's and his
    Then it became a trolling thing and I couldn't deal with it

    You might be getting a bit carried away with yourself. I’m pretty sure the use of embarrassment was an intentional copy of a comedy character. I don’t think it was a mistaken attempt at speaking good. :eaea:

    It'd be grouse if you spent half as much time proofing your own posts as you do nitpicking others' in some vain attempt to demonstrate your superiority.

    This comma is completely unnecessary. It should be a new sentence. Your grammar sucks for someone who harps on about spelling so much.

  8. There are what? There are so many there is so many, I like yores sew mutch betta.
    Use is if you want to emphasize the group; use are if you want to emphasize the individual members.
     
  9. Why should it be a new sentence? I mean it could be but why does it have to be a new sentence? My grammar might be mediocre but what has that to do with other efforts when spelling? Oh, perfection is required to identify mistakes, I see now. ****, that should have been another sentence ha ha.
     
  10. Not as annoying as "ha ha ha"..

    I mean seriously, who writes it like that?
     
  11. I only do two ha ha. I mean seriously, who writes his for he's, your for you're? Keep em coming, I can take it. Seriously.

    Because they are two separate sentences that aren't dependent on each other. They are called independent clauses. Spelling and grammar are obviously linked very closely. "He that is without sin among you, let him cast a stone at her" might seem ridiculous at the best of times but if you're going to call people out on their mistakes then maybe you should work harder on your own.

  16. Shouldn't there be a comma between "times" and "but" in your last sentence?

    Given you’re such a stickler for spelling; one gripe I’ve had reading your posts is that you use the American spelling for words that, in traditional British English, contain an ‘s’ and not a ‘z’.

    Even more so when you say the following:

    Some examples include:

    50AE2CE9-2D2F-4CDB-B81D-1CDAE130D32B.jpeg

    Criticise.

    Emphasise.

    Rationalisation.
