  • Mars Man [May 28, 2013 - 6:38 PM]: @Balanceof Equilibrium san:I do know some grammar, as does everyone else. I may be more keen on some aspects of than many other native speakers due to my experience in education at the university level for non-native speakers. However, it is not that I am trying to change English quite nearly as much as I am trying to protect some more accurate and better standard norms which have become so slack that it has caused a great amount of confusion among many. Furthermore, that confusion leads to an '[i]anything goes/i]' among some, which is detrimental in a way. (which a shout cannot nearly go into) Let's keep our English steady and precise, and, in better standard with accuracy! (... and I am not talking about pen chant so much here at all, but term usage and syntactic matters.)
  • Mars Man [May 28, 2013 - 12:07 AM]: So it is that you would like to say that an attitude which disregards responsibility for relatively correct language usage, is not hurting themself in some way by such an attitude?
  • Mars Man [May 27, 2013 - 11:10 PM]: In what way, however, does that amount to a response towards Tiff chan, relative to what she had written?
  • Mars Man [May 27, 2013 - 9:16 PM]: Well, that may depend, actually, right? What exactly do you wish to clarify with your second-below shout?
  • Mars Man [May 27, 2013 - 8:37 PM]: I do not think you have much room to really say anything here, in any serious manner, HarryTZ san. Are you just toying around here?
