to whom are you speaking? There are 2 (two) replies between your posts.The views thing may not even be an issue. They may be abusive to someone. Just as you are getting defensive about a grammer issue.And to be honest, I don't think this is a PC page. Many of us our adults and we're exchanging views, ideas, and information. If someone is giving incorrect information it's the other people that should correct him/her. To some that's flaming, to others it's correcting.As for you taking grammer issues personally that's a bummer. I hope that it doesn't affect you too harshly here. Regarding the thinking that we laugh at shortcomings it's similar to you attacking people for it."good for you." kinda fits that.------------------"Except for that Mrs. Lincoln, How did you like the play?"Pyromorph - Let the fire change you

Posted:I think itsgottab is being a bit overly sensitive.I think the only time people's grammer has been corrected or questioned is when they've either shown themselves to be an abusive or time wasting idiot, and grammer correction has been a way of saying 'Quite frankly your comments deserve no thought time'.Or grammer has been questioned when you youngsters use such slang so removed from the Queen's English, that others scratch thier heads and wonder what on earth was just said. There's been some classic examples lately! Note: it you spell something incorrectly it becomes harder for people to search for it!!!Being dyslexic myself I've found no offense on this board.Dom
