I love it when someone tries to tell me I have misspelled something, because I don't misspell. Then I have to have this sort of childish spelling bee until I end up spelling something they can only imagine the meaning of correctly, but they have to look it up to make sure I spelled it correctly...too much time on my hands? Nope, I'm just a lepidopteristic prestidigitator! (a.k.a. know-it-all)
@ jiggly mcsickfingers. I think I would get a doctor to look at that.
@ all comments afore this one:
that is all.
@jiggly: The "too" in "too much time on my hands" starts a sentence and should be capitalized.
@jiggly: the "a.k.a." inside the parentheses is redundant. The parentheses already separate the phrase from the sentence, but attach it to the thought.
@butidoseewhatyoudidthere: There's no need to capitalise when the ellipses is used to pause in the middle of a sentence.@JonnySwo: a.k.a. stands for "also known as", so though it it not necessary, it is not redundant. :)
Though it is you mean? I guess you spelled the word correctly but you used the wrong word. Though it it indeed
How to Beat an Unfunny Comment to Death
@ mog: It is generally unwise to enter into a discussion on spelling and grammar without triple checking that what you have posted is correct in these attributes.
'ellipses is used' ---> 'ellipses are used'
'though it it not' ---> 'though it is not'
@FreeFall you pedant, what mog meant was "ellipsis", therefore not plural... but jiggly should have left a space after useing it.
