    I wonder if the OP means "can" you stop or "will" you stop. Some of us can and won't.

    This kind of thing is actually really very important.

    It's the difference between "helping your uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "helping your uncle jack off a horse"

    Well of course it was, and even a little bit of a joke. When I was in school we didn't have cellphones, we didn't have basketball, we had very little music/tv/movies, there wasn't much to do but school and homework so I learned how to speak and what words meant what. Maybe I just had teachers that cared, maybe I cared.

    Kids nowadays have lots of things to think about, everything BUT school. But it also surprises me that people on forums that are well into adulthood still have problems picking the right words.

    It's more fun puking out of the window onto the car that's tailgating, than puking because you ran headon into something else.

    Apparently.

    I do not have a Uncle Jack. I like Apple Jacks. They are cinnamon crunchy.

    I was an English teacher for a while. I can't stand stuff like this. It's ok when non-native speakers make mistakes like this. It's definitely not ok when native English spakers do it. UGGGHHHHHHHH

    No doubt this thread was a simple test to find those who would ridicule with relative impunity.
    Perhaps it may even have been created to find a like minded person in hopes that a relationship would ensue.
    So far it seems to have identified the more contumacious members and sparked creative bonhomie within the ranks.

    Bravo !

    Now what's all this about Jack and his horse ??

    Why do you discriminate? or better said, why is that behavior discriminatory?

    The deal is that a lot of non-native English speaker do a heck of a lot better in my native English than I would ever do in theirs and I respect that.

    I think she does too.

    However, I have come to accept the typing faults of some of my fellow forum members in my time on these boards. I could name names, some who are departed and some who remain. I have learned to accept their meaning and read it as so.

    They can be the most interesting, as far as new ideas or entertainment goes.

    Except those that eschew the Shift key.

    Only e.e.cumming can own that. Sorry, boys.

    I went to school in the 60s and 70s. I had teachers that barely spoke English. I had teachers that were coaches and didn't care about anything but sports. I had teachers who preferred certain kids over others. We had prayer in school. We had bullying by both teachers and students. By high school I had discovered blotter acid and nothing much mattered.

    It was the worst time of my life.

    But I went to college, graduate school, and then law school. I worked hard, made a bunch of money and retired young.

    FWIW, it's "you're welcome," not "no problem."
