Last night, I clicked on the little question mark next to the 'spelling and grammar' part on the voting form, and a little box came up that advised how to vote regarding spelling and grammar.

Yet what did I find? A spelling error!

Instead of 'insure' it should be 'ensure'. Insure is only used to refer to a plan/scheme meant to protect against financial loss.

Did you panic much before posting this, in-case you made your own spelling error.?

The spelling was intentional to let people know how little they should factor S&G into a vote.

This reminds me of the time when Lannan took the S&G point off of one of my debates, but he misspelled the explanation in the vote. LOL

Hahaha. Isn't this technically improper usage rather than bad grammar?
"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."
