    Since motherfuckers seem to have lost their basic grammar skills when posting, I am going to give a few pointers out. Also if I catch a terrible post I am going to point it out and make fun of you.

    Their/There/They're:

    Their; Possessive. Belonging to.
    Their dog was black with spots.
    Their house was two stories high.
    Their mother just got back from the assylum.

    There; adjective. At.
    I want that one over There.
    There is my remote, who knew the stripper had it in her thong.
    There; Pronoun. To introduce a sentence.
    There are many grammatical errors on 12oz.
    There were three Middle Eastern men speaking loudly at that table.

    They're; Contraction. They Are.
    They're fuck-ups I tell you.
    I don't like hanging out with them, they're irritating.
    12oz posters? They're not English students I can tell you that much.

    Your/ You're

    Your; possessive. Belonging to.
    Your dog shat on my porch.
    Tease's posts are better than yours.
    Your crack isn't as good as Bobbys.
    Your girlfriend is a slut.

    You're; contraction. You Are.
    You're such an asshole.
    I can't type while you're yelling at me.
    You're still posting on 12oz I thought Seeking banned YOUR ass a month ago.

    More to come... Don't let me catch you slippin'...

    ^ apparently, lots of people do around these parts...a person starts a new thread, what do most of you usually do? you point out his or her's spelling/grammar mistakes, then the 1st half is spent on other people agreeing with the original person who pointed out those mistakes...blah blah blah blah.

    Good, STARSABOVE is now officially my gramma assistant.

    This week on Yo, Gramma!

    Its/It's

    Its; possessive, belonging to it.
    That dog is chasing its tail.
    The compound H2SO4 is nothing like its close cousn H2O.
    It's; Contraction, It Is.
    It's hotter than hell out here.
    It's a bitch when you don't get what you want.

    Than/Then

    Than; comparative.
    Alice is better in bed than Suzie.
    This yayo is better than that.
    My momma makes better fried chicken than yo' mamma.

    Then; time related
    To relate 2 events;
    I walked to school, then I slept in class.
    I ran after the bus then I fell in a puddle

    To put something in a time context;
    The then director of sales embezzled $150,000,000,000 from the company.
    If you want to ride the bus we'll have to wait until then.

    If then statements.
    If you want to get laid, then you need to smell good.
    If you like hash, then you should go to Morroco.

    In the next segment we'll visit the wonderful world of the sentence...

    I agree, I use this forum to past the time away. I hardly use it to flex my intelluctual skills, or lack of. It is to create fun, not to judge other's writing skills. Sure, all of us do not possess the writing skills as a scholar, but why pick people's responses apart.

    Thanks gorgeous, I know you did that on purpose. I am a post editor also.

    I (Capitalization tells us where the sentence begins) edit a shit load of things every day (Everyday refers to something ordinary or common. Every day refers to something that occurs daily). It's (Contraction, it is) a habit to edit quotes when I (caps) am here on 12oz. I'm such a loser. (I'm pretty sure looser is not something you want to be...)

    The idea here is not to pick apart someones response because they don't possess the knowledge of the English language to write correctly. Instead, it is the people who have this knowledge and continue to write nonsensical posts that are most irritating. I am trying to better the board as a whole...
