Baby, you're the best! (possibly o/t)

Three cheers for PCA!

I have looked at quite a few PC help forums in the past and none, repeat NONE, are a patch on our PCA.

I haven't gone so far as to develope a criteria for a good forum but the ones that spring to mind are:

Quality of advice

Friendliness of members

Aesthetics (sp?)

PCA scores 10/10 on all three.

Well done to FE and anyone else involved. (That includes us).

Nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest.

Nobody does it half as good as you.

Baby, you're the best.

I wasn't lookin' but somehow you found me.

I tried to hide from your love light,

But like heaven above me the spy who loved me

Is keepin' all my secrets safe tonight.

And nobody does it better

Though sometimes I wish someone could.

Nobody does it quite the way you do.

Did you have to be so good?

The way that you hold me whenever you hold me.

There's some kind of magic inside you

That keeps me from runnin' but just keep it comin'

How'd you learn to do the things you do?

And nobody does it better

Makes me feel sad for the rest.

Nobody does it half as good as you.

Baby, baby, darlin' you're the best.

Baby you're the best.

Baby you're the best.

Baby you're the best.

Darlin' you're the best.

Darlin' you're the best.

Baby you're the best.

Baby you're the best.

And you admit to knowing them?

Oh, well. Up to you :p

Should be "a criterion" or "criteria".

Other than that the quality of postings is generally up to scratch ;o)

didn't realise it was PC and Grammar advisor.

and don't you dare correct me on my spelling or contextual use of "grammar".



  tasslehoff burrfoot 00:34 03 Apr 05

Criteria is the collective noun for more than one criterion (as well as the plural). Therefore "a criteria" is fine.

What's the plural of herring? eh? eh?


  VoG II 00:42 03 Apr 05

"A criterion", more than one, "criteria".

The plural of herring is "herrings" but the plural of fish is "fish".

Similarly, data is a plural and if you are referring to a single observation the correct term is "datum".

  tasslehoff burrfoot 00:55 03 Apr 05

the plural of herring is herring!

Knew I'd getcha!


PS I'm standing by my made up collective noun excuse!

  Dan the Doctus 01:32 03 Apr 05

Herring and herrings are both correct.

  Forum Editor 02:24 03 Apr 05

Much appreciated, I'm sure.

By the way, and for the record - "a criteria" is certainly not "fine" as you put it.

VoG™ is right, 'criteria' is the plural form of the singular noun 'criterion'. You can have a criterion and you can have several criteria; you can even (but not very elegantly) have several criterions, but you can never have a criteria.

Herring and Herrings are indeed both correct, as Dan the Doctus points out. Useage makes the distinction, so......"look at that shoal of herring" is as correct as "Let's have herrings for supper".

Either way, they're incredibly bony, and I don't like them.
