Pet Peeve - English grammar.
OK, I see it in forum threads all over, including this one.
1. Then - than. These two words are NOT interchangeable.
For example: This TV is bigger than that one. If this TV is cheaper, then I would buy this one.
2. Two - too - to. These words are also tossed all over like a drunk on a sinking Italian cruise ship. (too soon?)
For example: I would go to the store, but I am too tired. Also, I only have two dollars.
Please be careful with the primary language of this forum. It prevents confusion when reading the posts. Do not count on spell checkers, they only correct the spelling of the single word, not how it is being used to make a sentence.
If, once you've posted, you see that you've made a mistake, you can go back and edit the post. I know that we live in a world of instant messaging, where acronyms are used in place of full words. But in forums, you can take the time to write in your posts.
Please feel free to use punctuation or else sentences would tend to run on forever causing even more confusion and losing the opportunity to convey an important message and making the reader lose a key point that you are trying to make. (Yes, this last paragraph is missing punctuations, on purpose.)
