    Gah, what a moron… I love English (heck, I majored in it), but is it just me, or do always the illiterate get the most incensed about other languages existing alongside their beloved mother tongue?

    It’s not just you, Volpeculus, it’s true.

    (The Themes Is Very-very Beautiful & Also Able To Place Adsense)

    Kang4roo… Fail.
    “The Themes Is very-very Beautiful & Also Able To Place Adsense”

    First of all, don’t advertise here for other blog sites. If this site was going to advertise for any blogsite, it would probably be Just a hunch, seeing as this blog is hosted by WordPress.
    Second, please don’t type in all capital letters. It merely reflects your minimal grasp of the English language, and only furthers the notion that you lack a proper third-grade education.
    Third, you lack a grasp of pluralization. “Themes Is” is improper use. When you use a verb, you add an “s” to the end only if the subject is singular. “Themes” is plural, as there is more than one theme, according to what I read in your sentence. For example, the last sentence used the subject “there,” which is single. There is only one “there.” Now, the verb “to be” would conjugate to “is,” as it is the third-person singular. You used “is” with “Themes,” where “are” would be the only conjugation of “to be” acceptable.
    Next in your failed attempt at seeming witty, you use the word “Very-very.” What is “Very-very?” Is it a new flavor of Froot Loops? “Come, try our ‘Very-very’ Froot Loop cereal! It’s ‘Very-very’ delicious!” Are you trying to put emphasis on “Beautiful?” If so, you might wish to try some synonyms, like “quite,” “exceptionally,” or “impressively.” Otherwise, you’re just making a bigger fool of yourself than you already are.
    Capitalizing every word in the sentence also shines light on your ineptitude. Other errors involve the words “WEBSITE,” and “DONT.” “WEBSITE” has no article, (“a,” “an,” or “the.”) which only further befuddles the poorly-worded sentence. Are you trying to get us to see the website, are you trying to get us to see any “” that we can find, or are you trying to get us to see “” Without the article, you’re failing to specify which website we should visit, and thus failing to reach your objective.
    You also failed to apply an apostrophe to the word “DONT.” “Don’t” is a contraction between the words “Do” and “not,” essentially shortening the phrase “do not.” Using the apostrophe signifies that letters are omitted between the “N” and the “T,” namely, the “O.” I have no idea what a “Dont” is, but “Don’t” is a clear, precise, informal way of saying “do not,” as in “do not forget to check out my site that isn’t WordPress.”

    Seriously, please think about what you’re going to type before you type it.

    Alright, was that a bit harsh? If it was too harsh, I won’t be as harsh in the future, but it is a blog dedicated exclusively to grammar, and Kang4roo’s post was a prime example of content found within the blog. For the record, “Froot Loops” is the actual spelling of the breakfast cereal, not “Fruit Loops.” I wanted to clear that up so that when people scrutinize this post, I wouldn’t have to explain that later. That is all. Have a nice day.

    Kang4roo = spambot most likely.

  6. 6 Extramrdo May 5, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    Yes, I agree. Kang4roo’s a spambot. That does not excuse them from using proper grammar. Advertising using words like “Very-very” is not going to attract literate people.

    I “was” too harsh, wasn’t I? (This was a reference to Quotation Fail.)

    My head hurts. Lighten up Extramrdo tardo. It’s just a game!

  8. 8 Tom May 7, 2008 at 9:51 am

    Americans are going to ruin our language.

    i’m sorry but, there it is.

  9. 9 Jane May 18, 2008 at 7:54 am

    Surely English fail, irony win on this one?

  10. 10 Alena May 21, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    I concur with Jane. Definitely irony FTW.

  11. 11 Cat June 3, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Well… there is a definite irony fail, as the wrong part of the word is underlined: “ffi” is underlined, when the real error is the missing “i” after the “c”. Nice try.

    to extramrdo: you owned him rofl!

  13. 13 David June 11, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    To Extramrdo: I lost interest after the first paragraph.
    To the guy holding the sign: I have nothing to say.

  14. 14 daddy00 June 13, 2008 at 11:14 am

    Well, at least they got the apostrophe in “America’s” right.

  15. 15 Sçium June 15, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    … I don’t know what to be more of… Scared of Extramrdo shooting down a SpamBot (I read the entire message, and let me just say… wow) or the fact that that idiot isn’t helping us at all!!!
