    I hate them, particularly full-stops , killer of all known sentences ; which is why we should use them sparingly. Colons are also really, really disgusting, more about these undesirables later. Commas can be fun and semi-colons too as you don't use a capital after usage. It's Colons and fullstops that are really crap. Try to avoid them at all costs. This way knowing you have done your best to save a few badly written sentences.

    You should probably pay more attention to apostrophes

    Yes, that's the first thing he should fix. There's nothing more important.

    I don't need to; I knew you would notice it Barbarossa (also it was fun while you were away) ..anyway I find it too similar in outward appearances to plutocracy , which should be avoided at all costs, right?

    Also, I am not allowed to use them yet, as I am still on Blah blah blah mode. ( see how similar these two totally different words are; apologies<->apostrophes)

    actually you are wrong.

    and anyways, you would be calling me a religious freak next, if I had used an apocalypse.

    Even that I had to return to Barbarossa, saying, for a fool one, I really knead more dough and should start all over again..

    He gave me back my L plates.

    Maybe you should consider WizWeird instead.

    No... bad idea; reason being... because it encompasses the notion of duality and in this time of The Absolute Truth, we could do with less of that!

    Anyway this thread is dedicated to a friend of mine, and he has yet to post in it, ..or he has me now on ignore too, which I very much doubt. The reason is I pay his wages, Royaly.

    Enjoy yourself while you still can as I have only paused with the thread, The Truth, to give you all time to get used to the first, and the coming greater shocks..they will be increasing in intensity and tempo very soon.
