OK , you're not a dick . English is a tough language sometimes . Like the word dick . Capitalized it's a name , lower case and it's a body part , or a descriptive term . English is funny like that .

Thinking about it though , there is one thing that bugs me lately . The use of the word floor for anything under ones feet . Seems to be a ghetto thing . No differentation between ground and floor anymore .

So yes , I guess I can be a dick...

The written word is what separates the men from the boys.

One of my favorite old saws is this. I didn't have time to write you a short letter, so I wrote you a long one!!

The OP has a good point. English is taught from 1st grade all the way through college and to see so many mistakes is annoying. The most annoying are the mistakes I make. I'm certain most people here are not unintelligent but poor grammar can sure make it look that way.

Only thing I remember about grammar is a preposition is a bad thing to end a sentence with.

"I might brake something if the breaks on my truck don't work."

Southern boy goes to Harvard. First day there, he stops some preppie and asks "Where is the libary at?" Preppie kid replies "Don't you know better than to end a sentence with a preposition?"

Southern kid replies.."You're correct, Where is the libary at, asshole?"
