The state should capitalize on these things. You know, kinda like Nevada did decades ago with the quickie divorce. Turned the state into a mecca, in which an empire could be built, didn't even have to create a god.

<quoted text>That's bullshit Crazy. No Surprise and Sporty's spelling is hardly a full grade level above mine. Either you're not expecting perfect grammar, perhaps just a little better than mine, or you don't even bother to read their posts. Ya know.
Are we talking about how I talk to people in general, in that, apparently you feel I show favoritism, OR the use of correct grammar?

Surely favoritism or being bias is found anywhere. But, I've never seen you correct the grammar of someone who you agree with. So am I wrong, or do you even read their posts? We all have pet peeves, I can't tolerate someone who can't make change, when they do it for a living, and it happens on a very regular basis. Just so you know, for future reference.

And the local gonorrhea rate is up 94%..condoms are for heathens?

Yes I saw something about that, but didn't pay close attention. My sex working days are long gone. I did see where Bill and Melinda Gates are offering a huge cash prize for whoever can come up with a new generation of condoms. You know one that people will actually wear. Guess they have a real problem in Africa fighting the Christians preaching condoms are sinful and that HIV must be endured.

When we first moved here, Utah county had the highest rate of anal gonorrhea among teenage girls in the country! These poor kids think "soaking" isn't sex..

Okay, here's the short answer. I usually bypass No Surprise's posts because they're too long to hold my interest, let alone correct. If he writes something concise, then I'll read it. As for mouse, she's usually writes well and requires very little correcting. As for myself, I'm not saying I'm without error. That being said, I do try to use correct grammar and spelling. I also proofread my posts before I post them. That's not to say that mistakes don't get by, because they do. I just try to limit the mistakes I do make.

Well Crazy, I'm just a novice, I just recently discovered spell check. But, I probably would have capitalized Mouse, I mean, I gotta show her some respect. I do agree though, grammar is important. I have really never communicated much through the written word. I can tell something is wrong when I read it, I usually just don't know how to fix it. I mean really, most people end sentences with prepositions all the time. The rules regarding English are always relative to something else. Would it surprise you if I told you my child is an English wiz?

No, it wouldn't surprise me. By the way, thanks for catching that capitalization error with Mouse's name. In my defense, I had Mouse capitalized in my earlier comment that didn't post, and I wrote that one while driving.

Pearl... you learned Hopi-Navajo as a youngster it's sometimes hard to adapt to another language. You should give yourself a break. BTW... I think you are the original Pearl now.:)

It may not be new but an openly admitted atheist /agnostic that regularly attends any church on Sunday has their wires crossed concerning where they shouldn't be or their really not what they claim. Just saying.

Umm, there's no difference between a non-Mormon and a non-active Mormon. They are essentially one and the same for habits/addictions etc except one has their name on the LDS records. So your correlation is lacking because it's quite obvious active Mormons are the true minority in Utah with non-Mormon and non-active Mormon being the majority. So all of the above would logically pertain to non-Mormons and non-active Mormons. Very few true blue active Mormons since they're the small, tiny minority in Utah would be found in those statistics. Understand?
