Haha! I must have just zeroed in on "irregardless." Sorry! Like I said, the Internet is hard to read, which is why we created this thread. It also helps if people like me can read correctly.

Wait a second...this is all Gypsy's fault! He started it!

The word "often" pronounced as "off-Ten" instead of "offen" drives me right up the wall. And it seems to be happening more and more frequently. I catch at least a couple occurrences a night on the tube.

"Often" can be pronounced either way. However, the OP was about postings. And yeah, Gypsy, how did this get stickied? LOL

I could understand forum rules being a sticky. However, a random complaint seems really strange. Or is spelling and grammar one of the forum rules?

Since the subject is peeve, I guess two of mine are when people post random links to cars on the internet and it becomes a bash session on that persons car. It's one thing if they post the link of their own car here and ask for opinions/feedback. I would love to see the people hammering these cars, post pics of their own work. Especially if they have a limited budget.

The other is some of the sizes of signatures. Apparently, some can't figure out how to edit pictures in such a way to put them horizontally and/or reduce the total number of lines of information. At one point in the past, I had turned the signatures off, but when I asked in a thread what the vehicle in question was, I basically received a comment back saying look at the signature stupid. At least the sizes of pictures on this forum are controllable.

Oh well. I guess it's really just a few stupid things to complain about.

Please Dude; enlighten me as to what is wrong with the following sentence.

What drives me crazy are people who use irregardless, makes me want to smack them.

I believe it should read "What drives me crazy is people who......". English teachers please comment.

Pisses me off when I take the time to hold the door open for a complete stranger and they just walk right thru without saying thank you... Normally, if this happens I will utter "you're welcome"

+1, that really pisses me off to, & I say the same thing. I thought I was the only rude one to say that?.

I hope not because I'd be one of the first ones to get banned.

Well boys, all of those "corrections" could be used, however the sentence as originally stated is perfectly acceptable.

These idiosyncrasies are what make the English language so interesting.

BTW, I earned my BA of Journalism with English minor.

The incorrect use of the words THEN and THAN irritates me, and it happens a LOT!
THEN is a sequence, THAN is an option,opinion, or preference.

I washed my cah, THEN I waxed it.
I'd rather drive a Mustang THAN a Kia.
