When I looked at the board recently it looked like all of our players had left.
"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.
^haha, good one dzwons son.
what's next, their versus there versus they're?
I am a practicing grammar Nazi. I f'ing hate bad grammar because I'm an enormous douche. We all have our vices, I suppose.
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 hereby declare this the EDUCATION THREAD for the EDUCKATIONALLY challenged.
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.
This thread seemed to indicate that a 16 bar freestyle was about to drop
Disappointed and neg repped
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
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?
