Kind person: (gets fed up) You know, Meany McMeanerperson, the title of the thread mentions (frivolous topic/weight loss scam). If you don't have anything useful to say about (frivolous topic/weight loss scam), then don't read the thread.

Impatrial observor: I don't care one way or another about the (frivolous activity) but it seems to me that people are overreacting. Why are you so mean? Why would anyone be so mean in such a nice place?

Meany McMeanerperson: Are you impatrial or impartial? BTW, do you know the difference between lose and loose? And by the way, I am not mean ... it is just that I hate all the coddling that goes on on this site!

Drama-Addicted Matronly Disciplinarian - This thread isn't about bunnies, flowers, previous breast implant posts or book reviews. I find it completely ridiculous that we can't even discuss a simple question without having a blown up argument. Are we all 3 years old? *scoffs and looks down nose* You all disgust me. I'm closing this thread now and NEVER COMING BACK!!!

My humble opinioner: PT, I ask that this thread be removed because, as much as it offends and annoys me, I can't be adult enough to turn away or not comment even if I know from the thread title it will likely offend me and would rather the whole site change its ethical standpoint to suit mine. I think a lot of PTers feel this way. I suggest you check out this model:

I gained 5 pounds! It's all because peertrainer users didn't support me in exactly the way I wanted. It's also because my group isn't as active as it was supposed to be. It's also because peertrainer did something to me. It's all peertrainers fault.

Anyone know of a software that does a gazillion calculations and can tell the exact breakdown of everything I eat, including the 100 tootsie rolls I shoved into my mouth today? If I can figure out the vitamins, sugars, protein, carbohydrates through my software, maybe then the tootsie rolls won't count!

to the above poster: correct punctuation calls for two spaces after a colon, not one; it is okay to put one after a semicolon. we need to raise the quality of this website by banning anyone who makes an error and doesn't know it's wrong. i never make mistakes.

Well, it's all Peertrainer's fault anyway. I mean, look at how they write the name: PEERtrainer. What is that about? Did someone realize halfway through that they left the caps lock button on? Honestly! They just PROMOTE bad grammar and mechanical errors. Oh, wait, maybe that should be PROmote. Sheesh!

Actually, in true British English, generalisation would be correct. Old school, "izes" were "ises"- realise, generalise, hypothesise, etc. Just like true Canadian (and British) English, have the extra U in words- honour, glamour, valour, favour, etc. (Fergie's song "glamorous" drives me nuts for that reason...)

OT - Should I worry if I have green fungus under my toenails

It is really gross, and I think I have given it to my husband .... and I am afraid he is having an affair with his secretary because she has just developed green fungus under her toenails too.
Should I see a doctor .... marriage counselor ..... therapist or just kick his butt to the curb?
