She has powers beyond the ken of mortal man.Anyway you can't complain. You haven't got any commas or fullstops in your sentence either.I'm not going to make my usual grammar joke as it always dies on its arse

I'm not sure who this rogue "pele" is, but its a good idea for all of us to make our posts easier to read...

Posted:Oh, now you know I can't resist!!!If written correctly the sentence, as I learned my American grammar, should be...."Please, please, please break up your stories so they are a little easier on the eye, Pele and others."There are proper breaks, a full stop at the end of the complete sentence, proper captialization, as well as correlating syntax instead of having singluar phrasing relating to plural sunjects.

Posted:or perhaps:2 November, 2001Dear Pele and Others, Re: Spelling & Grammar Request - Home of PoiAfter having read many of your posts to the individual forums of the Home of Poi website, it has come to my attention that, whilst your entries are both titillating and informative, paragraphs are not being utilised as they should.I personally find it difficult to absorb information when it has been set out in such a way. No doubt, I have been missing much of the stimulation you provide as a result. I am therefore requesting that you divide your posts into paragraphs so I can take full advantage of the wonderful information you have to offer.In anticipation,tip

Posted:Erm no Bendy. I'm afraid you are incorrect. An Ass is a type of donkey. Closely related to the zebra or horse but having slightly longer ears. Found in parts of Asia and Africa. It's is also an American corruption of the British slang word - Arse. Meaning buttocks.And Flash and I were just chatting about it previous to her post which is why I, jokingly, corrected her.*shakes head*I can't believe that i'm sitting here at 6.45am arguing the semantics of arses and ass'. If my mum was alive she'd be so proud right now.....------------------C@ntus

Posted:Do you hear that? *pauses for a moment of silence* ... it is the sound of a crack pipe, on its last bowl....bubble bubble fizz pop...do you know what crack is? I know, I know, I make jokes about crack heads alot, But (personal) experience has taught me...Once a crack head-always a crack head. Disclaimer: Smoking crack may not neccisarily make a person a crack head, and a person may be a crack head even though they have never smoked crack, however, if you say "crack", randomly during a conversationor as a joke, and the person goes "AaaaRRR!!! CRACK!!!" You may have an actual crack head in front of you... Please proccede to the nearest emergency exit, and please, do NOT panic...My grammer might be totaly wrong but, I thought that:Ass Rapping (I think it is also called "beat boxing" in 80's USA inner city slang, where-as Ass Raping (as in Rape, AKA sexual assault) is a form of beastiality performed on innocent relatives of the horse family...Pass the crack pipe please..I think I'll have another hit...

Posted:Why on earth is everyone so fixated with crack?Kat. I don't make jokes about crack. It's a touchy subject with me as it recently nearly consumed one of my friends. I don't find all this humour surrounding very funny I'm afraid.NYC makes jokes about it. Fair play to him. If that's what he thinks is funny. But i really don't understand why everyone is suddenly banging on about it.And I certainly dont get why Satanatwo suddenly appeared in the middle of nowhere and started whittering about crack pipes. It wasn't relevent in the slightest.*is supremely baffled*------------------C@ntus

I find it a little annoying that it is the topic of paying someone out if they say something odd. And I appologise if I offended you. I know drugs can be touchy subject at times. Espeically when they hit close to home.Humble appologies
