    You're right Chad. I admire you for caring about your writing at such a young age. I didn't mean to come down on you, but you have to admit that the irony was delicious! ;)

    Here's yet another pair of words that I've seen misused quite a bit lately:

    That makes me think of Joe Pesci's character in the movie With Honors when he sits in on the Harvard lecture.

    "At Harvard we don't end sentences in prepositions."

    I am of the opinion that as long as we know what one means then their language has done its job

    My belief is that when you regularly put effort in to what you write, it will become more and more effortless when it actually matters. It really simplifies things - I never have to "switch" between writing styles dependent on who I'm talking to.

    I personally do not want my posts on this (or any other forum) to make me appear lazy, uneducated, or complacent.
