It's dominant, not dominate

please, please for the love of God, you illiterate self-absorbed g@#lings learn the difference between the words dominate and dominant in your craigslist postings.

Dominate is a verb, not a noun. You want a dominant man to dominate you.

We know we have lost the battle of hideous brown shoes with navy slacks (you have convinced yourself that your poverty that only allows you one set of dress shoes can be masked by claiming your tastes are "European) and have agreed to simply snicker at you behind your backs on that one.

Must you continue to embarrass yourselves?

And while you're at it, OP: people, please learn the difference between DISCREET and DISCRETE.

Ok, thanks.

by craigslist trollreply 108/19/2013

And while you're at it, R1: R1, please learn that, while "OK," "O.K." and "Okay" are acceptable conventions, "Ok" is not.

OK, thanks.

Miss R2, until you can place commas correctly in a sentence, you need to simma down, now.

Despite what your high school teacher told you and your inability to discern a run-on sentence from one with proper syntax, they do not simply belong "where you would take a breath."

by craigslist trollreply 308/19/2013

Straights do it too, OP. and agree, the discreet vs discrete bit bugs me too...

If they can't spell it, they can't be it.

by craigslist trollreply 408/19/2013

Frankly, I'm more concerned that legitimate and authoritative sources are now bending to common errors and actually legitimizing them.

Case in point: Several dictionaries have now decided that "literally" means both "literally" and "figuratively" - how can a single word have a meaning which is also it's direct antonym?

When something can mean several things - it means nothing.

And do they write "loose" for "lose"?

by craigslist trollreply 608/19/2013

First of the their, there and they're people chiming in.

I don't get what this has to do with the vocabulary question.

It sounds like you're having a nervous breakdown.

by craigslist trollreply 808/19/2013

R3, Anti-Comma Queen, the commas are correct and "Ok" isn't.

Now correct yourself.

by craigslist trollreply 908/19/2013

Don't get me started on blonde vs. blond.

by craigslist trollreply 1008/19/2013

Your uptight. Ok, theirs no problem with how peeps write so long as you get what there saying. I am discrete in my views, I know. I definitely dislike when people write dominate instead of dominant, because then I know they're saying it incorrectly, two.

Are they're things you don't like that people say wrong, to?

by craigslist trollreply 1108/19/2013

R9 if you think a comma belongs after the word "that" you need to go back to eighth grade.

by craigslist trollreply 1208/19/2013

Two, to and too. Learn the difference. Please.

by craigslist trollreply 1308/19/2013

You're and your do not have the same meaning.

by craigslist trollreply 1408/19/2013

And for the love of all that is holy, listen up you Apple FUCKS, think differentLY!

Cut it thinly.

Do it quickly.

Talk softly.

Cunt it cuntily.

by craigslist trollreply 1508/19/2013

R12, you obviously lack an education and think that reflexively spouting "eighth grade" and "high school" like you've observed the big boys doing somehow covers your ignorance. People who actually know English do not require such feeble tactics.

The comma after "that" is correctly placed. If you can maintain your attention long enough to reach the end of the sentence, you will see that another comma denotes the phrase between the commas as a parenthetic expression, properly "marked off."

But you yourself lack the English skills to insert a comma after your long prepositional phrase, so you hardly are a source of light. That you are comma-adverse is fine. It has become a common affliction among those who are so self-absorbed in their written communications that they do not care about ready understanding among others. After all, it's all about your noise. However, do not attempt to translate your laziness into some sort of rule. Fool.

Really, the low level of snarking here, combined with the types of people who blather about others' posts while posting "Ok," makes for an experience similar to walking through a yard where chihuahuas are taken to shit. Small turds from little bitches all over.

r16: Hi, MHB! How's the job as a cashier at the car wash working out for you?

by craigslist trollreply 1708/19/2013

Nice try, cookie-deleter.

by craigslist trollreply 1808/19/2013

Another couple of annoying add misspellings:

I want you to come into my hotel room, take off your cloths, and Fuck me until I can't breath!

by craigslist trollreply 1908/19/2013

R19, you need to 'loose' one d from your first sentence. Funny guy. Make sure to bath before arriving at the hotel to rip of my cloths so I don't have to breath your stank.

by craigslist trollreply 2008/19/2013

Sunny skies.

by craigslist trollreply 2108/19/2013

Im smellin helen @R16.

by craigslist trollreply 2308/20/2013

[quote]That you are comma-adverse is fine.

Oh, dear. Someone needs to work on "averse" vs. "adverse."
