    I am not picking on any individuals, but this one is a pet peeve of mine...
    [rant]A sub produces BASS, NOT BASE!! I've seen this basically 5 or more times in just a few days.[/rant]

    Watch out for the elusive low bass. You can hardly tell by his markings but he's got a fully clabriated belly.

    While you're at it, there is no such word as "seperates" in the dictionary. The correct spelling is "separates." The same goes for lose, as in "I will lose my house if I don't make the payments, not loose as in "I have screw loose." [​IMG]

    Yes, there was another discussion regarding grammatical and typographical errors on the After Hours lounge, specifically focusing on definately vs definitely, and a few other commonly misspelled words [​IMG]

    your and you're that's a good one.
    how about there, their, they, and they're.
    Grammar errors on boreds (I mean boards) don't bother me. It is just a message board not a term paper!!! Loosen up a little.
    Now what bugs me is when you can not understand the post.:b [​IMG]

    Another one I hate is the absurdly clueless confusion of "threw" with "through", as in "I'm threw eating dessert".

    Yeah, the "base" thing drives me nuts too. Another often misspelled HT term is "receiver" (not "reciever").

    Also, let's not forget proper use of "its" vs. "it's" and "affect" vs. "effect".

    It's simple really. The spelling of ba"se" is similar to Bose. Since Bose cannot produce ba"ss", it shouldn't be hard to remember the correct spelling.

    For me, a sub produces gas. Especially a meatball sub.

    "All your base are belongs to us." (Or how did that one go?)
