    Default Resign verse Re-sign

    When I looked at the board recently it looked like all of our players had left.

    Please note:

    "Athletes who renew their contracts re-sign with their teams (note the hyphen). If they were to resign they would do the opposite—leave."

    Consider that some education for the day.

    Verse versus versUS. Please note the word in your thread title. It should be resign versus re-sign. Verse is the lyric part if a song. Some education for you

    2 things I'd avoid at all costs are, however:

    Starting a thread about it.

    Making a grammatical error in the thread title regarding poor/incorrect use of grammar.

    I just couldn't handle the shame.

    I was pretty surprised when I saw threads claiming that Smith and Novak had resigned. Upon reading them both I understood that these grammatical errors need to be addressed. We need to teach people gooder english otherwise the language will just re-sign; and rightfully so.

    The bold is just awful. I'm a major grammar Nazi.

    If you want to ever correct someone's grammar, you have to make sure yours is the same.

    And if someone ever gets out of hand, make sure to put them in their place, like so:

    You're wrong actually. you have to look at the context of his post...
    He's listing things, just like listing ”buy eggs today” in a shopping list.how is it fair to call that grammatically incorrect.

    Lists do not require complete grammatical accuracy. He is not trying to write an academic list yet you treat it like it is..on a knicks forum

    LOL LOL

    Ok I goofed on the title.

    I honestly don't care most of the time when people make grammar/spelling errors. It's the internet. And it's a Knicks forum. We have some of the lowest educated fans out there

    BUT - when the meaning actually changes based on the word, and it isn't clear what the author means - then THAT is a problem!

    If Smith and Novak RESIGNED - that would be VERY BAD.
    But they re-SIGNED! That makes me happy!

    What if I hadn't read the actual forum message but only the title? And my reaction to that was jumping out the window of my building?

    I would look pretty foolish in the newspaper the next day - wouldn't I?
