    ==> "Contents"

    I don't know about you but I'm seeing this word more and more in BSTs and WSOs and I just can't stand it, It just irritates the crapola out of me. I don't want to be seen as the grammar police but I think they should make a new law and ban everyone on this forum that uses this word. Plural noun: "Contents" for those of you that don't know is defined as "the things that are held or included in something" not the content of a website.

    i.e; the contents of a website would in fact be => content.

    and this should be punishable by death => "High Quality Spun Contents"

    WTF? how can spun gibberish be high quality and the contents of what? OH you mean content. When I see a thread and someone posting this type of content I automatically think "slap & dash".

    PLEASE: Stop using this word you're driving me nuts...

    Not your first account I take it. That is what really irritates the crapola out of me.

    Well as you started a thread about things that annoy you, here are a couple of things that annoy me:

    1. People whose first post is pointless, negative or a complaint.

    2. People who don't practise what they preach.

    Your long, rambling post about grammar is littered with spelling, punctuation and capitalization errors.

    1, It's not pointless
    2, I don't use the word "contents" meaning content

    Well if I must. Your first comment is a complaint, seems a little strange.

    Yes mate, your contents (this thread) is absolutely pointless and creating such contents should be >>>> "punishable by death"

    Well it could be worse. I've seen much worse grammar and spelling. Plus not everyone's first language is English.

    Maybe you don't, but here are a few of the basic errors you made whilst complaining about a single error:

    You don't capitalize after a comma - basic punctuation
    Everyone who uses this word
    Sentences always start with a capital
    The phrase is 'slapdash'. Unless you are using each word separately? In which case you should have punctuated each word separately - I automatically think "slap" & "dash"
    As I said, practise what you preach.

    Wouldn't that be "practice what you preach"?

    No he's right

    So I make a few errors, I know I should start a sentence with the word and or
    but it makes perfect sense at least.

    Personally, I don't mind the word at all. The meaning actually makes things easier,
    especially in some e-books, you can just take a look & see what it is about. :)

    Well because this thread has turned into a grammer Nazi thread, it is your and not you're. Did the grammar Nazis like the way I used grammer instead of grammar, I knew it would give you a little thrill .
