I came to this forum thinking I might find a little information on Canon equipment, somehow got caught up in a time/space warp, and landed in what appears to be some sort of English high school class Hell.

Is there some way out of this maze or are we doomed to 150 messages worth of our worst elementary school, English grammar, and spelling class nightmares revisited.

Before you kill me, I really am just kidding [but ducking anyway].

It is all a bit off topic for this forum, isn't it?

But it is interesting just the same. Incorrect spelling is related to another related issue that drives me crazy: people using words that are similar to but don’t have the same meaning as another word, as if they were interchangeable. You know exactly what I’m talking about if you’ve ever had a conversation with someone who said at some point “well, you know what I mean.” No, I don’t! I only know what you said!!!

Misuse of words and incorrect spellings are both a barrier to good communication.

But who am I to criticize; I’m still trying to figure out how to use the comma.
