The little reporter that cried wolf

I’m sure all of us know the story about the boy that cried wolf. You know the one.

“Oh look! The wolf is coming to eat us all.”

And the wolf never came.

Then one day the wolf did come and he had one hell of a feast because no one believed the kid for crying wolf so many times.

I wonder if those who constantly report stories on FF are actually taken seriously by the moderators? So many of the stories they report are still up there. A gander through some of the concritter forums shows pages and pages and pages of stories that are (allegedly) being reported every day by multiple people – members or not – and yet, they’re there.

Did the concritter cry against the rules too many times, or are the stories they think that are against the rules simply not against the rules?

What do my readers think?

You concritters who visit my blog are welcome to comment as well. Keep it civil though.

My grammer is gooder then you’re grammer

Yes, I know that is misspelled. I’m making a point.

If there’s one thing that really riles me up, it’s those who claim to be concritters or critics, yet their profiles and reviews are riddled with grammar mistakes.

Case in point:

FF member Artemis zodiac has been hanging around the CU board according to one of my readers.

You're grammer is horryball.

Your grammar is horrible.

If you want us to take you seriously, check your own work for errors.

According to the submitters, these names were in the non member threads on Eliminator, CU, LU and Defenders.

I wish these guys would sign in so we could see who they really are. Too bad they’re too much of a chicken to sign in and let the world see who they are:

Apparently studying grammar and spelling is no longer part of literature.

Careless – being free of care. Not caring – She is careless when she drives and she will get hurt.
Care less – I couldn’t care less what you think.

You’re welcome.

You people and your bad grammer grammar make my head hurt.

Another Helpful Hint

If you want us to take your group seriously, learn how to spell.

Then learn the difference between then and than.

Whoops...

Whoops…

Just to clarify:

Than is a conjunction linking two thoughts together. Unlike then, than is not related to time. Than is used in comparative statements. “I’d rather be hung upside down by my toes than have to read one more word of your FanFiction story.” or “My story is better than yours.”

Then shows order. “I am going to rip out your eyeballs with a Spork then feed them to you forcibly because of how horrible your story is.” or “I will be in Tampa then I will be in Miami.”

Helpful Hint

If you’re going to be a critic and hand out critiques, please learn to spell and construct proper sentences first.

Nothing screams “I’m a dumbass!” louder than not being able to spell your way out of a wet paper sack.

Hmmm....

Hmmm….

Being British, I can overlook the favorite/favourite or color/colour spellings. I get corrected all the time for spelling stuff “wrong” according to my American friends.
