It's spelled "grammar" not "grammer."

If you're going to be a grammar or spelling Nazi be very careful not to make spelling mistakes in your posts. I'm a Spelling Nazi, myself.

We're a company started by Jim Grammer in 1376 C.E. Many say this is where we get the term, "grammar" but that Mr. Grammer didn't want to show involvement.

We're a not for profit company that devotes its time to helping the public learn about grammar and the effect it has on our lives.

Ya'll just need to step on the breaks here. Assuming you have peddle breaks. Leave UnsafeAlpine alone, the skin on his brain is itchy.

Memo

To: All Concerned
From: UnsafeAlpine, Assistant Regional Manager

This is just a reminder that while spelling and grammar is important to internet conversation, coherency is even more so. Please formulate your thought before you submit your post. Get a friend to look over your post, as well. This is especially important if you are starting a thread asking for advice. If members cannot understand what you're getting across, it may be difficult to get an answer that makes sense to you.

Thank you.
