Why do you keep calling yourself a bot?! The only bot around here is Rusty [] and quite frankly you addressing yourself as a bot only serves as further confusion to me. So, please stop caling yourself a bot, thanks.

and take a chill pill - seriously, some of your stuff in this thread is WAY OVERBOARD for a thread that was likely started with light-hearted intent.

If you don't have any chill pills to hand, I would gladly give you a good dose of tranquilizers.

Default Re: Deb, Nat, and Brian's Thread of Grammar Shame.

All right, for anyone who missed the intent of my last post, the hyperbole was intended as a graceful and (hopefully--but guess not) humorous way of ending my participation in this thread. I had actually figured out that this thread as half-serious, half-funny was not going to catch on, and since a half-serious, half-funny language thread in another player's forum was recently created, I will transplant myself over there.

As to the references to myself as a bot, that is my teasing nickname in a number of player forums. So when someone in this thread independently asked if I were a bot and Brian and I started (re-)writing humorous songs around it, I thought it could be an inside joke nickname here as well. I'm sorry for any confusion I inadvertently created.

This shall be my final post here.

Default Re: Deb, Nat, and Brian's Thread of Grammar Shame.

I got another question

With "have" and "do"...

Which form is correct?
I don't have or I haven't

I saw both but as far as I remember ( ) my teachers told me to not use "do" with the verb "have" :scrach:

And what's the purpose to say :
I do remember instead of I remember... Are they both correct?

Hope I'm clear

Hey, there's no need to leave. I'm a bitch, so don't mind my last post. I wasn't being serious; I enjoy your contributions to this thread. They make me laugh.

edit: Oh and to Deb, Brian and Nat , sorry for playing a part in stuffing up your cool thread. I will cease posting here from now on! Hope it gets back on track (:

I think it depends but either can be correct. For example, if you say "I don't have time..." or "I haven't got the time...." I think they're both right. but I mean if you want to say "I don't know," saying "I haven't know" is obviously wrong, but saying "I have no clue" would be right.

Does that help at all?

And, aside from Nicolas's interesting questions, this thread is 100% non-serious, not half-serious. Just for future reference

you're not a bot! you're a crazy bot!
