    actually, I agree with "grammar police"
    unless someone's native language is not english, or they have a legitimate reason for having writing issues (like dyslexia) then we *should* give people a hard time for being lazy in their spelling and grammar..
    American teenagers are the worst.

    its not mean..its actually doing them a favor to point it out.
    we are far too worried about "not offending" these days..
    when we *should* point out when people need to improve things..
    its a *good* thing!

    yes, perhaps we can cut Vixen some slack now that we know about the Dyslexia, but in general, its good to admonish people for horrible spelling and grammar, if they have no real excuse for it.

    keep it up Grammar Police...im on your side.

    and Vixen,
    grow a backbone..dont be such a wuss..
    this is the internet! you have to *expect* to be offended eventually!
    you cant go through life with an attitude of "oh boo hoo, im so offended, someone was mean to me, im going to pout and leave the forum"..that will get you nowhere.
    gotta be tough! this is the real world.
    our society is far too worried about "offending"..and people get offended far too easily.

    Grammer Police was totally justified in pointing out your bad English, at first..now that we know you have a legitimate issue, we can all let it go and give you a pass...but we didnt know that before hand.

    just blow it off and enjoy the forum! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    its not the end of the world..
    if you leave, you will only hurt yourself..no one else.
    its not worth it to get upset and offended.

    If someone wants to yell at me now for being mean, I wont be offended!

    After browsing this thread, I'm on Vixen's side. Since Scottchaos is such a fan of Grammer Police (sic) maybe he/she would take the time to dissect his/her posting.
    "I hereby salute you a warm welcome to the forums" Salute you a warm welcome?
    "! whew!" Capital W, please.
    "The forumers here" After an exhaustive search of Chambers failed to come up with the word forumer I asume you to be unable to have enough education to construct a sentence.
    Given your use of split infinitives, I also assume you to not be adult enough to remember when such grammatical style was considered poor. It still is.

    none of those "mistakes" are mine..
    I didn't write those.
    if you are going to criticize me, at least use my own words and not someone elses! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    and that is so lame and predictable..
    "lets find some mistakes the grammar police made"!
    so unoriginal and boring..
    please..2nd graders might think that is clever..no one else does.

    and "Hotspur"..
    (and "Grammar Police" as well)
    Be a man and use your real name.
    since this was your "first post", its obvious you just made up a new forum name so no one would know who you are..
    hiding beind an alias..
    what a wuss..

    Vixen, nice plants! Thank you for sharing with us. My only concern is that a store bought VFT's that flower soon thereafter, are potentially set up to drain the plant of its energy - and thus die shortly thereafter. You may want to strongly consider cutting the flower stalk and have the plant, as well as the Sarras be outside. Plants that go through a dormancy period need lots of direct sunshine and a good few months of rest, in order to do well and flower the following year. I bought a VFT and put it in a terrarium. It flowered and promptly died. Food for thought.

    The trouble with you know-it-all Americans is that assume too much. Why do you think I'm quoting you? Can't you read? Do you really want your grammar and spelling criticised? I think not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Let's bury the flamewars and ethnic slurs! Let's go back to discussing plants and keep private matters..... private.
