  • Mar 11 2013: I'm having a hard time giving any sort of credence to your question when I can make some corrections. I take particular interest in you're assertion that the next generation (i.e. My generation and younger), can't use proper English. Please compare corrections and stylistic suggestions.

    When you can't even use proper English, you have no right to criticize others, much less extrapolate and generalize concepts like what you're talking about. I take personal offence to your question.
