I want to buy glamping but I don't know who I'm going with yet and don't really want to drop the 2 x $160. It looks super nice though dammit!
Oh I didn't know you were coming! I totally woulda shared camping with you but I just went in on it with another friend. The camping is the one thing hat always sells out and is in hot demand on Craigslist later, so you'd have no problem finding someone to sell the other pass to if you don't find someone to split with. (but I get how you might not be able to front the other pass right now though, cuz damn they're expensive!)
Capitalization matters. Spelling matters. Punctuation matters....we don't want this place to start looking like 4chan or your little sister's text message inbox...Asking noobs to type correctly is, to a certain extent, a litmus test...Meatheads and assholes are unwelcome here, and traditionally a meathead or an asshole will quickly show their colors when they are asked to do something that they are not capable of doing...I am an unabashed grammar nazi, and I am an Admin, and I told you to.
As a fearful newbie, I appreciate your sentiments, Gramma. I must say, I have a love-hate relationship with the Grammar Nazi thing. I was utterly terrified for years to post on this board because I was sure I would mess something up and receive mocking of epic proportions in return. However, I am also a Grammar Nazi in real life, so I am thankful for the grammatical standards that have allowed me to glean a great deal from these boards despite my cowardly lack of participation. Thus, I promise I'm not a Meathead, I hate texting lingo, and I hope I pass the litmus test so I can perhaps contribute something useful rather than just lurking.
All that said, is it totally nerdy to post the introduction profile dealie that initiated this thread years ago? I was going to do it, but it appears it is not 'done' with much regularity these days, and I don't want to go about making things more difficult for myself than they already are as a newbie.
I like stuff like that, I made sure it was my first post. My next few were apologizing for my username, which was fun but terrifying, because I was pretty sure I had pissed off HG immediately by joining the board.

There have proven to be many ways to if not circumvent my pointless, idiot wrath, then to at least minimize it. New girl here is using one of the more effective ones: pandering to my grammar/punctuation hangups.
5kater invented a totally new one -- he invented a fake account with which to troll himself so that we'd all come to his defense. Pretty clever.
