    The grammar thread(AKA Angie vs. isucyfan nerd contest)

    I'm not a grammar expert but there's some things I see on these boards that really bug me. Here's one, anyone have others they'd like to share?

    'to' is a preposition meaning "towards", 'too' is an adverb meaning "in addition".

    Re: The grammar thread

    its also really annoying when people don't use any punctuation commas periods semicolons or other identifying marks to create pauses and indicate breaths in a sentence and they like to try to cram as much thought into a sentence as possible and then the sentence without a period and leave you wondering what the hell theyre jacked up on

    Re: The grammar thread

    The only thing that really annoys me are people saying "loose" instead of "lose".

    Like, we're going to loose this game. Let it be unleashed!
