Official HIT forum guide to spelling
« on: November 13, 2005, 12:39:40 AM »

This is needed badly, so pay attention if you need to. Ok, here are some common errors that people make. Even though you speak English as a native language. Annoying. (PS: If you don't speak English as your first language, then you're excused)

========================================================
Their : This is used when you're talking about an object that somebody owns.

EXAMPLE: "The army took their guns with them"
========================================================
There: This is used when specifying a place, mostly

EXAMPLE: "The toilets are over there"
========================================================
They're: Shortened version of "They are"

EXAMPLE: "They're going to a party"
========================================================
Your: Used for talking about an object that belongs to you

Example: "Are you bringing your calculator to school?"
========================================================
You're: Shortened version of "You are"

Example: "You're a fucking idiot, and can't use 'their' and 'your' correctly"
========================================================
To: Used for a LOT of things, but mainly used for locations and such

Example: "Are you going to the party?"
========================================================
Too: Kind of hard to explain. See the examples

Example "£100 is too much for a TV", "I'm too tired to go to work"
========================================================
Two: A fucking number. If you get this mixed up with "To" and "Too", then I wish death upon you.

Example: "Look, I can count to 5! One, Two, Three, Four, Five!"
========================================================

This may seem petty, but it really annoys me how most of you can't even use words like "You're" properly. I'm fed up with seeing crap like "Your really annoying!" or "I am going to there party"


For the love of God, please take note of this tutorial. I hope it may help you in the future.

Tutorial? This should be moved to the friggin rule page. You forgot 'i'm' btw, which is commonly mispelled as 'am' (what the fuck?) by the Morgwin we all know and hate.
