Re: Language!

Nope... its either on or off... But it kinda proved the point (and no disrepect to Lora) - but there was no way FixIt should have been below her!!! (if rep was purely given for the right reasons)

Re: Language!

Fixit wouldn't mind being below her

Rep was being abused. Ok, off for now! That just leaves spamming then , plus the secret Gallery area

Re: Language!

I just think I left it for a few silly reasons - something I hadn't done before, although I did leave a good one about insurance phone number listings.

I agree, and no disrespect to Lora, the people who deserved it (if intended for help only) were lower than they should have been.

It's difficult to moderate against awful language, some people don't know otherwise!

Re: Language!

On text language, personally I hate it! Maybe we could have a vote...

Re: Language!

I don't even use text language on my texts, lol. No need if you use predictive text, surely, and who cares if a message goes across 2 or 3 text pages on todays phones.

Re: Language!

I don't think my teachers appreciate it much when I revert to slang and "txt spk" in essays either....maybe everone should just make a conscious effort to fully articulate themselves, that way everyone understands what you're getting at and it'll put you into good habits too!!!

You are right, I apologise now for giving you 8 points in one go! Anyway, being on top is always bad

Re: Language!

Except when it means you get hardest work! :P

I just lost out on 1k because I didn't do 4 a levels Why oh why did I do further maths then quit?! I could have made a grand

Sorry, OT. I try to write properly simply because it means when I am in a position of needing to write properly it's just common habit.

Re: Language!

i opoligise for me langwidge init

no i am sorry i do try in serious threads some times i go back and edit a few times when i notice my mistakes.

i was part of a test thing when i started school was taught in ITA it was supposed to be an easier way to teach kids to read, you wrote words as they sounded, it was bit at the time you could even get library books written in ITA, it was scrapped after a few years, but it has confused my brain for ever. thats my excuse any way
