That's true, and you're our leader/goddess when it comes to grammar

I don't like you what so ever.
Just a heads up not to talk to me.

-I sound like a 12 year old boy
-If I'm playing CoD4 or Halo3 and people find out I'm a girl. They T-Bag me.
-I get downsized for having a vagina if I speak one word into my head set.

Reasons I love xBox live:
- I can act like a lesbian, and for some reason that angers people ;D
- It's really funny when guys downsize you, then you blow them away with either, a noob tube to piss them off, or you just beat them with an AK-74 ;o

This is a writing forum.....we expect you to use good grammar. It's stupid not to use it wherever you go. All you do is gain a bad habit from not using it. I've seen stories where the grammar was wrong because they didn't use it already.

C'mon. It's important to everyone else.

You know, it'd be nice if I could create my own thread and call it:

Carraka's Greeting Thread!

And then instead of having to come on and say hullo to all these new people, they'd come on my thread and beg for chocolate.

Haha ... yes. I like this idea.

I've managed to give you yet another original greeting. Not that you'll remember it. No one ever remembers these original greetings that I come up with. And I spend hours on them! And this is what I get?

Hi, I'm Car. We don't listen to the same type of music, but then again ... I only know one person that listens to the same type of music as me: my mom.

Ain't that sad? Anyway, since this is a writing forum, and since I've come up with an original greeting, please capitalize.

Carrakan logic.

Hey Rory, I'm going to take your side here. I got pressured into capitalizing by these grammar nazis (*glares around angrily* -kidding) but go ahead and try it. See how long you can last with these guys.

Anyway, welcome to YWO!

This forum's pretty strict about proper grammar, yeah, but then again it's a writing forum... some people here actually have a painful time reading internetspeak. I'm pretty jaded to it myself. Er, but I have to object to your use of smileys as punctuation. I remember reading a comedic short story about the period becoming an endangered species, and people having sentences go on and on for pages - they'd find refuge in the semicolon and the more creative ones used smileys. Examples were given:
"Horatio, I am dead"

Tsuki, and the word "privilege" objects to your calling it a ledge.
