Do we need an age restricted Off Topic forum?(80 posts)
So maybe one day we won't see the sun anymore. We better enjoy it whilst it still shines.
PS. I read, that they are getting some German technology to filter the Coal Power plants.
Dear whs, I believe you to be an honorable person. In keeping, would you do granny a great big favor and remove that disgusting link from this site? I would hate for any child to innocently stumble across it. That link is exactly the kind of thing that defiles the human spirit. I trust you all had a productive Earth Day!
Make everyday Earth Day!
Jd, done. Btw. May I ask you why you always spell the word "sense" as "since"? I have noticed that many times in your postings. Is that a special patois in your neck of the woods? I hope you don't mind me asking.
3a: chiefly British : to sell (as stolen goods) illegally <flogged their employers' petrol to ordinary motorists...
I heard this happened to Lord Snowdon, but then again I read the Sun.
It's because I'm not the best at grammar and spelling and I don't know the correct use of the word. I looked it up now and see the difference.
I guess sense no one corrected me before I just figured that was the correct one.
I also use the spell checker a lot and of course it didn't know I meant a different word entirely.
Also, no I don't mind. I'm happy you pointed that out as now I know the correct word to use.
Edit: Thinking about it, I think before I thought it might have been wrong, I just didn't get around to checking for the correct word.
Edit 2: Re 'Beating a dead horse': How is it so? Has the topic of bad links come up before or do you think this topic has gone on to long?
Dear whs, I fully understand what you were trying to do, but reposting the link only adds insult to injury. Granny doesn't need graphics. Simply stating that there was a questionable link would have sufficed. But thank you for removing it.:) I love language games! Scott, "beating a dead horse"-correct. Scott, again correct about flog, not bad for a Sun reader!:)
jd, Your grammar is fine. I've yet to notice any glaring weaknesses.
Re: Edit 2: This topic has gone from age restrictions to moo shu pork to word play. Which "dead horse" is being beaten? You all have a good day!
Dear whs, I thought you and the "Geeks behind the curtain" were serious about keeping the site "G" rated. I guess I was wrong.
Scott, You're a hoot!:)
If I may again enlist the expertise of the How-to-Geeks, I'm having a devil of a time with HP email support. Bless their hearts, they're trying hard but nothing is working. I keep getting this persistent error code: 80070005 pertaining to my monitor. The monitor wants to update the driver but it fails every time. I've even edited the registry per the HP email instructions. Nothing is working. I think all of you might be smarter. If granny hasn't gotten on your nerves too badly, can you help me out?
Granny, surely you see our indiscretions are few and far between.
Copying your post so it has a better chance of a reply, (if your OS isn't Vista, please let me know).
And just in case you haven't heard it today,
Dear Scott, I do see. That's why I'm here and not on some seedy web site. I just come from a different place in time and don't always understand you kids. I will repost because now HP is having difficulty coming up with a solution.
Thank you so much for the beautiful card! You've made an old lady's day:)!
Hey guys, i am a teenager my self , 14, and trust me, the only > Youngsters </ > Teenagers < that go on these forums are probably nerds/Geeks, and so far i havent seen any offensive material on this website, i dont see why anyone should worry.
I strongly disagree with applying age restrictions, as it will ruin the website.
I usually dont say my age, but i felt so comfortable in this community that i proudly said my age!
Please dont make age restrictions!
