Great point, Lara. I'm sorry to say that never occured to me before.

And I just want to add that it isn't so much the misuse of grammar that bothers me. It's the text message style of typing that drives me up the wall. For those of us who don't use it, it can be like trying to solve a word puzzle. If I wanted to do that, I'd go out and buy a puzzle book. Really is it that hard to type love, instead of luv? It's a computer. It's not that time consuming. I know there are more extreme examples, but as I said, I don't do that kind of thing and I can't think of anything better at the moment.

Really, if you're going to suggest the mods make this a sticky (and then act all high and mighty in following posts), it's best to make sure you're using the right words to explain yourself. Spelling errors are one thing, but using a word whose definition in no way fits its usage? Twice??

Silly namkcuR...

This looks wrong to me.

It should be "look there" or "look over this table" or "dont look there".

"look over there" is nonsensical

Thanks, namckuR, for pointing out some of this stuff. It pleases my editorial heart. Nevertheless, as a mod I can only see this flame war continuing.

Thus, upon receipt of wise grammar tips...

and you hunger for the time
time to heal, desire, time
