    Am I the only one that is bugged by this?
    I mean I know that I'm slightly anal retentive, but it hurts my eyes every time I see someone's status as 'To Far Gone' instead of 'Too Far Gone'.
    Or am I wrong and destined to have a headache as everyone's status grows? ::)

    Wouldn't Too Far Gone, mean Also Far Gone? Whereas To Far Gone means Going Far Gone.

    I took it out.

    Besides the dial up issues the purpose of having an over 18 year old board isn't to scare the old ladies off shrieking ;D

    If you were ever only going to post in the Manure Pile it would have been fine....we'd like to keep the rest of the board half way civilized ;)

    To: preposition, a function word used to indicate -- movement, contact, purpose, result, possession, addition, or relation to a another state of being/time/place
    can also be an indicator that the verb following it is an infinitive

    Too: adverb, meaning to an excessive degree (oftentimes to the point of dangerousness)

    I suppose it would hinge on whether you wanted for feel prepositional or adverbial there.


    ;D
    Didn't think I was going to pass this one up did y'all? :th_afrique:

    Well, while we're on the subject do you know how many horses I've seen described as "quite" instead of "quiet"??
    Drives me nuts!!!!

    A few more:

    through vs threw
    there vs their

    I'm sure there are plenty more but people are tired of me being the grammar police.

    and it doesn't make sense that the word "saw" is spelled the same way for two different meanings.
