    I have to agree with the original poster although in not such harsh words. Grammar does matter, even it is understandable. Maybe the difference between multiply and times is not that great, but if you let up on those, then the language will just keep getting murdered.

    Why stop double posting? People can still read it just fine. (just an example)

    The English language is just a murdering of every other language in the world, pretty much, so you can't make it much worse.

    I have said this before and will say it again. It's really not that big of a deal and I honestly can't see why you people are getting worked up over one word. You people need to get over it already.

    The problem is that English has always been the vernacular, the common language. It has been the lowly one like after the norman invasion, Latin, French, and then English. When they tried to make it universal, they shoved in the latin grammar system which doesn't work too well. It like trying to fit a square inside of a circle perfectly.

    2 evry1 who tinks its a waste of time 2 speek da rite way shood not b pissed about me typeing liek dis.

    True. and I'm sure that by umaking this thread, the person that did it was trying to foment that the words used in English as opposed to the ones in another language are different and irrelevant, and just made easier to understand for the Unitedstatian people; so it was just an example.

    People that get worked up about little things like this are kind of more annoying than people that say things like that. Also you should edit your post, I don't think the "f" word is tolerated here.

    What the hell? "Times it?" MULTIPLY IT. You know how much of an ignorant f.u.c.k. you sound like when you say "Times it?" Just wondering.

    I am posting this because some whore in my combinatorics class today before class started was talking about the homework and she was like, "YEAH DO THIS THEN TIMES IT BY 2." I wanted to be smack her.

    Ugh. Stupid whore.
    No offense, but that's life, it's not fair, get over it...

    And I'm not the one calling people
    Spoiler Alert!

    in my signature...

    It's not the others who have the problem, but you. You are the one complaining. They are fine the way they are, but you are the one who is bothered...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Adding to what I said
    If she is better than you at math, than don't complain. I'm probably better than you at math and I'm not complaining. I'm taking Pre-calc
