I may be accidentally doing so. ( that sounds odd out of context) But, did we all ever as a collective board group decide on what we're doing for the great inflate? Are we doing a single band or dinosaurs or balls?
I'm having a fucking brain fart and didn't find anything recent in my search bar.
My inflatables are for Boys Noize, and trust me, I'll have a lot. So far we'll have giant rideable whales, alligators, and hippos making appearances. I haven't even started shopping for regular beach balls, but there will be close to 50, along with one gigantic beach ball.
There is a chance that reghawaii might one day become a board regular, liked and respected by all.
Right now, he is just a guy who has made two posts about diapers.
Well, given his seemingly non-existent grammar skills (or at least an aversion to question marks), I kinda doubt it.
I was going to give him to benefit if the doubt and suggest that his Shift key might be broken, but he was able to capitalize the letter M in his first post. So, no, I don't think he's long for this board at his current pace.

I definitely doubt it. I have to say, though, that it truly is a relief that my commitment to the highest possible standards for grammar and punctuation are shared by the majority of the people on this board. Nothing rankles me more than being obliged to take the time to read something written by someone who couldn't be even be bothered to put a capital letter at the beginning of their sentence. Lack of punctuation, LOL-speak, run-on sentences cobbled together with improperly used ellipses... All of these things fill me with rage. But nothing gets to me as much as an indifference to proper capitalization.

Especially considering that typing is being taught in literally every single classroom in the western hemisphere at this point -- something that I didn't have. I learned the other day that typing is in fact being taught in place of grammar and sentence structure in many schools. So okay, the occasional superfluous comma, whatever. It happens. But to willfully disregard the shift key, like, that requires a determination to completely override the muscle memory which is inherently gained in the very early stages of learning how to type.
To me, that says that you WANT to be regarded as an imbecile. I find it incredibly easy to accommodate that.
