and I can't stand no more!!!

Can posters please sort out the difference between lose and loose (loser and looser). The amount of times these two words are mis-used is staggering.

Lose - to misplace. Loser - someone not in the lead. Loose - not tight. Looser - not as tight.

Rant over Ducking behind parapet.

Nearly as annoying as the countless times we see ducking with a capital letter mid sentence.

So frustrating :0)

I used to cringe when ever I heard the word ABSOLUTELY, mostly on BBC radio4 'chat shows' ... in response to a question. I haven't heard it (that word) for a while.It must be out of fashion, now.

I posted twice with examples of misuses that irritate me, and almost instantly regretted doing so. Not everyone writes perfect English, or never misspells a word.

I decided to delete my own posts, which must be a first. Perhaps I'll email myself to demand an explanation.

csqward there is no reason to loose control, if you just loosened up a bit I'm sure you would see that complaining that way is just a sign of a loser, or looser or, any way you have lost it.

No, not lost it, just a reasonable grasp of my mother tongue.

I just got a red-fonted sentence from PCA describing my "Snap!" post as 'We think this is spam'

My last post was a test to see if SPAM! was alright and SNAP! wasn't.
