You are STILL putting an H where there isn't one. It is

GLOUCESTER.

It's a bit like all those university applicants who get rejected by medical schools because they can't spell medicine.

Yes - your sentance should start with "It's", which is short for "It is", and not "Its".

Are you purposely trying to annoy me? Would you like me to find all your spelling and grammatical mistakes?

If i wanted advice on my spelling and punctuation i would have joined a spelling and punctuation forum.

perhaps we should get back to the topic at hand? Please stop commenting on my errors because i have found many in your posts.

Actually, you are only supposed to use "It's" in conversation. Really, it is, it is. So who can answer his question?

Personally I think that on an informal forum such as this, contractions should be considered perfectly valid, provided they are appropriately written with apostrophes and that no apostrophes get lost and end up somewhere else.
And that people learn to tell the difference between "its" and "it's".

I also think that starting sentences with 'And' is OK on a medium which is conversational... like this one. Maybe ;)

And people should read before they post dammit! :tongue:

And then reread after they post.

And then add smilies where appropriate.
:grin: ;) :grin: :tongue:

Yea I am taking A level English so I know how to spell. I choose to be rather informal in my typing on these forums as I enjoy being relaxed about my grammar. However I did misspell Gloucestershire so don't tell!! :tongue:

Yes if i do make a mistake on a spelling do tell me i like to be corrected!:)


Unless you want me to be formal?

I assume the university doesn't have its own club? Have you tried googling it? Lists on the Leon Paul or British Fencing sites? etc etc
