My profuse apologies, Kevin, grovel, grovel... Better get on to this FDeacon person and put them straight, before they unleash 'irregardless' on their unsuspecting overseas students, eh? ;-)

ha ha... yes. I actually had an argument with a college professor once about my grade. We disagreed about the quality of my paper! :-) My ego could not handle his criticism, because even in his negative feedback for my paper he made a lot of grammar errors. I ridiculed him for using irregardless and also for a few other errors.

Note to Professors: You should only be a tough grader of papers if you are fluent in your native language!!

Anyway, I'm so happy you joined our forum, Brownie!

When I was in school, our Biology teacher would mark down (Biology) papers if they contained grammatical or spelling errors, on the basis that students' ideas would not be accepted (regardless of the topic) if they could not communicate effectively. I wish more present-day teachers had her skills and insight.

Thanks for the welcome and glad to be here.
