A very strange phobia which I have...I am afraid bad grammar is contagious...

I'm an immigrant to the U.S. and while I was growing up, my parents often advised me not to play with the other immigrant kids and to hang out with people who were born here and spoke fluent English. And that's what I did. But I keep having this irrational fear of being around people who have accents. I am afraid that I may unconsciously imitate them and lose my ability to speak English free of accent. And recently (oddly enough) I am afraid of reading certain datalounge posts because there are some posters on datalounge who have very poor grammar. I'm afraid that their inability to adhere to grammatical rules will rub off on me. So ya. I just wanted to vent my fears on here.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
