    No, I don't think so. But was connecting an independent clause to a dependent clause. The first part of the sentence wouldn't create a full thought on its own.

    This would be incorrect
    Huge is old, but smart.

    Dunno, maybe this will keep the language crap from clogging up all the other threads.

  5. Much merriment and laughter here. I did miss the part where Kath and Kim misspelled embarrassment. No problem.
  6. Sufuckingperb!!! Hard to believe you trawled through my posts to find a threefa!!! Ha ha ha
  7. The reason you can't usually start a sentence with “because” is because the sentence needs two parts for because to join together. Usually, “because” goes in between the two clauses, so if we start a sentence with “because” there is often only one clause in the sentence.

  9. Oh, no doubt. I can see it having an expiry date though.
  10. That's fine. I might point out that either spelling is correct as I am in neither country so it's purely choice, is it not? I totally agree I like the English version of things but as the spellings are interchangeable and simultaneously correct I use a hybrid of both. I just don't think 'Z' gets enough air time so this is my support of 'Z'.
  11. Yes, take credit instead of crediting me with starting it. I blame Adam, he started it when he had someone to talk to.

    Love it. One of the greatest strengths of this forum was the original demand by Coxy that the new age internet jargon was kept to a minimum. I think I remember him being pissed off with acronyms.
