Re: nautical language rant

I am with JS on this one. But mainly just the English language massacres.

Some that drive me nuts:

- Should of, would of, etc. No more phonetic spelling. Learn the language
- Irregardless. No such word. Period.
- To, too and two. 3 different words.
- There, their and they're. 3 different words
- Were and Where. 2 words.

I am certainly no English language expert but these are really elementary(as in, I learned this in elementary school) components of our language.

And enough with "kewl". It isn't cute anymore.

Rant over.
