That's better.

I only made this post because Chronomaster did the same thing.

It isn't an attack on anyone.

I am of the opinion that "grammar-nazi" is the accepted term for the "you used an apostrophe instead of a semi-colon! lol" types. Speaking as a Jewish raised, non-practicing, person, I am in no way offended by **** being used to describe something like that. Grammar Nazi-ing is a gateway to full on Nazi-ing.

In the future we will have a full stable of Mods who will deal with such things, and most likely will actually beat on the **** as bad as the grammar offenders if not worse. I personally like to try and keep things relatively on topic, even in the off topic forum. But we will just have to see how things progress and cross that bridge when we come to it....

I'd say "grammar otaku" is also an appropriate term that could apply here. I'm not one for grammar, but I certainly am for spelling. But I'll only be correcting the spelling of the Alteil team ;)

Sadly, my joke on the tastelessness of a joke is drowned out in the noise.

Don't worry, I'm sure someone appreciated it...

Maybe...

Will you feel better if I take you off the hook?

I'd feel better if someone got the reference.

It has something to do with roleplaying & drinking from a magic fountain (which reduces hunger slightly).

Ermm, this is grammar? Isn't this just spelling? Why not do more important bits, that will make english less broken?

Well, anyway, i'm just some kind of sucker for wanting to correct someone's writing, so i can get a clearer view of what the person is trying to say. I also hate people who don't use punctuation and end up making an incomprehensible(sp?) wall of text. That's just what i hate when people don't use punctuation on a forum, thinking they can type hoqwever they want...

Well, it's just annoying me, though. I'll still try to read through it.
