    This pump dispenses gasoline, a fossil fuel. People who believe fossils are not real should put something else in their tanks.

    Who cares a Fig leaf what they do with a Hobby horse. I'd rather spend my Pin money on some Ice cream and develop my Pot belly. So I don't end up like that test tube killer23...

    Is there a rule of thumb for this word splitting and word uniting?
    There'd better be
    I don't like grammatical changes that are to be memorised and have no logical explanation

    Just do what you want but be really aggressive about it. Works for manker and he's a grammar nazi.

    Like I just spelt nazi without a capital "N", fuck them they don't deserve it.

    I've done it twice now.

    ooer missus.

    Anyway, grammar changes in the same way as words, syntax etc. We need to use enough of it so that our meaning is as unambiguous as possible. Bearing in mind that people will have differing cultural and socio-economic reference points so there will always be scope for misunderstanding. Feck that's even more reason to try to be as clear as possible.

    However there's no need to take it to the anally retentive levels which manker does. That simply discourages creativity. How many of the lurkers here would post on the forum and add much needed new ideas if only he were to lighten up a bit.
