    Angry Grammar Nazi needs your help!

    Please people, learn the difference between your and you're!


    Your

    1 : of or relating to you or yourself or yourselves especially as possessor or possessors <your bodies>, agent or agents <your contributions>, or object or objects of an action <your discharge>
    2 : of or relating to one or oneself <when you face the north, east is at your right>



    You're
    Contraction for: you are
    The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.

    That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.Ē Ė Jeff Cooper'

    Your right, Snuffy, it drives me crazy when people mess that one up, and I see people use it wrong here all the time. Their just not raised on proper grammar like I were, I guess.

    Personally, and IMO, I think people either know how to use proper grammar or don't. OR, just lazy and don't care It does tend to come across as being illiterate though.

    Meh - it's not really a grammer issue - it's a common typo.

    I just want to ask the person, "What's the matter, aren't you smart enough to figure out what is being said?"
    Why worry if someone else has proper grammer or not...take care of yourself and stop worry about the Jones. I'm sure you can figure it out...Use your brain.

    OK then you want everyone to use proper grammer. Can you tell me when LOL or roflmao is proper in any conversation. I cant ooops no '... Well if your reading forums and actually get bothered by how people put their sentences together then you should find the english teacher forums and not Law Enforcement forums.
