Title: My apologies to the forum!
Post by: Wiredforlife on July 06, 2014, 10:27:44 PM
No doubt some of you may have seen my posts in a certain thread, for the life of me I cannot find it now. Devine intervention or a moderator!

Anyway, I would hereby like to send fourth my apologies to all involved in the discussion. I realize that I posted comments that was directed at certain people, who may now be having sporadic epileptic fits of anger. I also apologise for my inhability to appreciate the finer things in life, like turntables and lp's. I ask that you guys forgive me and guide me, possibly send me a text book or 2 so I may improve my grammer. Maybe a turntable, a analogue/vlave amplifier and speakers to match. Would prefer you guys just to buy my stuff in the classifieds though. But hey, beggers can't be choosers.

If I could, I would have personaly apologised to each and every forum member invloved. Unfortunetly, driving a Land Rover v8 makes this almost impossible.

One more request, is that the modz, do not delete my account, as I aint done with these boobs yet.

Kindly comment if you accept my apology :-)

Regards
Andre

But he thought nothing of having a quick fist fight on the church grounds to straiten out a wayward neighbor before taking his place in church.... a man pride was his pride...

Since when does spelling & grammar rules apply in Africa ?   

To win you have to step into the ring ....if not the rules of a 'gentleman's honour' no longer apply.   

The Laguna is not a match for the Landy V8 so in all fairness you will most likely have to have to boost your plate offering by adding the Garrard 301's and the Quads...

The alternative is to apologize and beg for forgiveness for being so trigger happy at an inexperienced young gun...?

@ Skollie,  grammar. The keys to my Laguna "are" not in the plate.    "keys" plural  means that "they" are not in the plate. "key" singular would be "the key to my Laguna is not in the plate.

Sorry  Skollie I couldnt resist this since you called the grammar and spelling on this forum is atrocious.   I agree .

Post by: adie on July 07, 2014, 01:33:05 PM
And you don't begin a sentence with 'and'.

A frequently asked question about conjunctions is whether and or but can be used at the beginning of a sentence. This is what R.W. Burchfield has to say about this use of and:

There is a persistent belief that it is improper to begin a sentence with And, but this prohibition has been cheerfully ignored by standard authors from Anglo-Saxon times onwards. An initial And is a useful aid to writers as the narrative continues.
from The New Fowler's Modern English Usage
edited by R.W. Burchfield. Clarendon Press: Oxford, England. 1996.
Used with the permission of Oxford University Press.
The same is true with the conjunction but. A sentence beginning with and or but will tend to draw attention to itself and its transitional function. Writers should examine such sentences with two questions in mind: (1) would the sentence and paragraph function just as well without the initial conjunction? (2) should the sentence in question be connected to the previous sentence? If the initial conjunction still seems appropriate, use it.

You ous are all  :nutter: - not that that is necessarily a bad thing.

Post by: Jozua on July 07, 2014, 02:04:48 PM
Where are the days when men stood for principles, had a strong sense of honor and were prepared to fight for what they believed to be the right thing to do !!

In the good old days- you could let out the raw emotion, taste a bit of blood and then experience the emotional relief when it all over. Even if you were the loser it sometimes still felt good !!

Why not just lighten up and allow more conflicting views? If a statement upset's a person, that person needs to stand up and defend his view.  Much better than being grumpy in the background.

So let's have some robust ball playing -even if it means we need to swim upstream.  The only rule is not to play the person.

Not sure what the fight is about but that will not deter me from participating, so I will wing it!
I am defending the right of everyone to be, and to believe what they want.  :baseball: :angrywife: :envy: :dop:

However, they forfeit the right to have me respect their choices if I think they're wrong... and sometimes when they're right, and too smug about it!

coffin-size - coffin sized        /    context of coffin-size (and resolution)

In that sentence for the plural object: "speakers", coffin sized is the correct word to individualize it on a per object basis, otherwise it can be read that the speakers as a pair are the size of 1 coffin.

Quote
built-into - built into    /     used tongue-in-cheek as a reference to onto/into hence the bold font

The bold font is fine, the hyphen is wrong. You can hyphenate "built-in" but not built into.

Misquoted, 'nei man - that one was not for you'.


Atjan

That Landy might be stuck in some sacred initiation site- with WiredforLife held to ransom with a big knife held against his noodle and no Boers to rescue him. It could be just the job for scribe Waterhond? If he succeeds we will know how strong is his mettle- if not, a second Noodle might be at risk !!
