    But you knew what I meant

    This is addressed to everyone on the site. But particularly the newer members who are more guilty of this.

    I don't mind grammar errors or typos as I make a ton of them myself, however please don't make a post saying the opposite of what you mean.

    I have read about ten posts in the past 6 months where someone has said something like:

    "It is not the case that I' think Bradman is not as good as Tendulkar". When from the rest of their post they are stating that Bradman is not as good at Tendulkar and they only typed this last line as they used a double negative incorrectly.

    There have even been cleaner examples than double negatives used incorrectly. For example "I do not think Player X is the man for the job". When they meant to say that "Player X is the man for the job".

    So yeah this is just a rant really. Make whatever mistakes you want in your post but get your main message on the money even if it means, heaven forbid, proof reading your post.

    This has been a public service announcement brought to you by the Letter E and number 7.

    No flames please.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    He's a repeat offender.

    This reminds me of the NHL where Claude Lemieux would instigate by taking cheap shots at the better players until they would take a wild swipe at him and get penalised.
