    Is anyone else getting reallllly pissed off with people putting they "brought" something instead of bought ?

    I understand spelling mistakes happen, but c'mon its getting as bad as people putting E>P>I>C !

    maybe the mods could charge the word brought to "im an idiot who needs to go back to school" im sure people would learn the meaning quick enough

    rant over :D

    Could be spell checker??? I often make mistakes with that as it will correct to whatever it wants, sometimes without any logic behind its selection




    Or they could just be retarded... i wouldnt discount that, god knows i am haha!

    I don't think so, bought is a word, so why would spell checker change it to brought ?!
    doesn't make much sense to me.
    Lol everyone is allowed retarded moments !

    What if you bring something along with you .. you would then have brought it? Such as this topic has been brought to the table. The table with which I bought.

    You cant put "brought" into the swear filter, its an actual word. My favourites are "specific" and "pacific" and nucular, excellent way of spotting a tard :thumbs:

    - - - Updated - - -

    I also love it when people try to correct others and get it wrong. What did you buy with your table Minto? :D :D :D

    I agree with you Ross, it riles me up too.

    Something should happen, DW. Putting brought into the filter would be a good idea. Epi.c is also a word however people work around it.

    There's also "break" and "brake", it's always funny when people write "big break kit". Is that like a big kit for your spring break? :wack:

    Hah I nearly posted the same thing.

    While we're at it, people need to look up the meanings of 'their', 'they're' and 'there' too.

    And stop using apostrophes in plurals.

    So, how about "defiantly"?
    It's DEFINITELY!!

    It's just so sad that so many people can't even write/speak/spell in their own language. Like replacing words wich contain a TH and replace them with an F. :no:

    Be careful, all the illiterate mongs will be on here calling you a grammar nazi etc.

    Also its fucking brakes no breaks. Unless youre breaking a car, in which case its breaking not braking.

    If you struggle, remember brought is the past tense of bring.
