Sad though it is, I don't think reading the FAQs will help this fellow. Nor will JP's marvelously informative posts, I'm afraid. :(

(That said, one can only hope that "dank man" will go the way of all the DARTH CAPITALs and CherubBoys.)

I have to point him to the FAQ at least once before I can ban him in good conscience
it's all part of the process.

By the way, JP, it's "sentence", not "sentance". The latter makes it seem you are writing with an accent. Your corrections, however, are otherwise quite nice.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

And, according to at least some, it is acceptable to start a sentence with the word "but."

I prefer to think that I'm correcting grammar ideas generally, and not that I just sided with a noob.

In your previous statement, you appear to have put a (comma) and an (and) next to each other, a big no no!

Please tell me that English is not your first language. The word "and" is what is known as a conjunction, and although there are cases where conjunctions are used without commas, they are also very commonly used in addition to commas. If you had read the FAQ, you should know, or at least suspect, that you are on a forum full of editors and writers. You are not going to win a grammar war. What you can do is just use decent grammar. That won't win you the war, but it counts as an honorable surrender, and I think you will find that people will be much more receptive to what you are trying to say. Next chapter, we'll work on expressing coherent thoughts. Assuming you have coherent thoughts. But that is a matter for another day.

Faster Master St. Pastor your anatomy of names is obviously rubbish and im not a noob i have been a member since before christmas and i made 4 pages. So shut your gob. Or ill do a noobie smackdown on you.


Your have failed to properly insult my name; Prepare to Die.

In case you haven't noticed, I happen to have been around for longer than you, and to have started numerous threads with numerous replies, thus outstripping your 'accomplishments'. I find it funny how you threaten to smack me down. For you to do this I would have needed to have done something to warrant a smackdown, such as behaving how you yourself have been. Also, judging by how badly you failed insulted my name I am, quite frankly, unimpressed or threatend in any way, so do your worst, please; I'll enjoy laughing at it.

I think it is generally accepted that commas and the word 'and' can, in fact, be next to each other.

Coherent thoughts? I don't think he has thoughts at all!
On a completely separate topic,  it really is a season for bans, isn't it?
On another topic, has anyone else noticed similarities in Cheruboy and Dankezman posts? The awful insults, the "trying to dig out of a hole yet falling in deeper" phase?
And, last topic of all, didn't Cheruboy get banned?

Frankly, I'm shocked. But, even more frankly, I'm always shocked.

you know, it's *you* guys recommending a ban that are causing most of the contention on this thread.
