    I know we have had a few posts in the past where someone has tried to get people to use the right words when they are posting and to spell words correctly. Usually they go in one ear and out the other. However I will give this a try in the hopes that some of you will give it a try.

    I have noticed that many people are using the word "loose" instead of "lose".

    First lets tackle "lose".
    If you lose something it's gone or dead. eg. If you guys don't quite using "loose" instead of "lose" I'm gonna lose my mind!

    Second lets take on the word "loose".
    When you loose something, you release it. When you guys loose a plant I'm left wondering who you dropped it on.
    If something is loose it is not attached. eg. The loose end of the rope was dangling in the water.

    Kapish??

    There's another meaning for loose, Steve, and you have to lose something just one time to start the path toward being loose. Now, once you've lost that, you would think, "I have nothing left to lose". But you have plenty to lose when you are loose, right? Since this is a family oriented site, I'll say no more. Loose lips sink ships. I hope I didn't lose you on this, Steve.

    I thought I was going to loose my mind reading all of this. Man you're really lose with your uses of the words lose and loose. It was really confusing.
    But thanks to your post I have it all straight now. I'll be able to use the correct word now and you won't have to loose your mind over any of my posts anymore.

    Hange lose Dude.

    I have a friend who always refers to himself as a looser when he's typing about feeling down. I usually get a little chuckle out of it - makes dealing with his self-pity a little more bearable. Does that make me a bad friend?

    Only if you let him know that he can't even get that right...
