Sometimes I work for the grammar police.
The tag line under the ISSUES + RANTS says "A place getting all those pressing issues of your chests." instead of OFF your chests?
I actually think it should read "A place to get all those pressing issues off your chests."
But...I could be wrong.
Hrm, and the tag line under CRAFTY + ARTY
"Discuss crafty, arty and creative things."
I think it should be "Discuss crafty, arty, and creative things."
(I am just really bored and new to the site so I was just exploring and noticed things. Don't mind me)
You're right about the first, wrong about the second.
a comma replaces an 'and', you don't put two together.
I work for them too- and I hate it when people put two exclamation marks or question marks together- I sometimes do it when I'm VERY excited but mostly I avoid it as though it were the plague.
agree with the first disagree with the second.
I'm the grammar police, my spelling is awful but my grammar is ace.
They're - They are
There - a place
Their - someones possession
your - your book your pencil
you're - you are, *you're silly
where - a place
we're - we are
were - for everything else
but if I get it wrong its because I'm not paying attention.
Fixed the stupid of / off one - I can't believe we didn't notice that one sooner.
I stand corrected.
so you do
@ school i work for the grammar and spelling police -- it annoys the CRAP outta my friends XD
my friend said it didn't matter, I think she meant just on the internet and msn BUT SHE'S AN ENGLISH STUDENT! at one of the best Uni's in the uk! also wear - wearing clothes! someone put 'were' instead of 'wear' and this guy was in my english class and he did better at everything then me grade wise when I'm obviously more cleverererer LOLZ
bq. I stand corrected.
Actually, you were right - skipping the comma is a new thing. The accepted style used to be that the comma was always inserted (Strunk and White's respected, if kinda old, style guide Elements of Style only mentions this style), but these days it's more common to see the last comma dropped.
I personally think that the last comma makes things read a little slower so I often leave it in when that's the effect I want.
I think it would be better to write 'chest' not 'chests' as i don't have three chests.
I know it's referring to all Cut Out and keepers but when you read it yourself, it's aimed at you.
ISSUES + RANTS
It says just what it means to me.
But, I tend to be more visual and styles get in the way sometimes when text is changed.
Keep in mind the visual persons.
If it is in all CAPS it shouts to you visually, so you may find some persons skipping the small typed messages or afterthoughts and details.
