No. People don't like to be corrected. It hurts their feelings and it's just not that important

It really annoys me when someone doesn't use proper grammar, especially when it is a simple error. However, I don't say anything because I make mistakes too and am guilty of not knowing some aspects of grammar. Like comas. I still don't understand when to use them at some times.

I'm supposed to do it for the site because they want proper grammar and I will at times to help someone out but that's the only reason. I'm sorry if they get annoyed but it's part of my job. If they get upset, I'm sorry as I'm only trying to help is all.

Ah,  Happy Thanksgiving!

I think Canadians celebrate it 2 weeks earlier (or later,  I can't remember) and I know that in Mexico they either fry or deep-fry the Turkey I learned that one yesterday...

The whole world knows, Rooster.

After the papal election in 2013, Pope Francis walked out onto his balcony to acknowledge the crowd or adoring Catholics who had waited to welcome him. But he was not alone. A man stood beside him.

A journalist covering the event turned to his companion and said, "Who's that?"

And was told, … Read more
