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.
Greetings, I am eager to engage you in linguistic debate. It appears that you favor prescriptive grammar over descriptive grammar, an opinion I consider most ill-informed.
To start, I shall attempt to make it clear what I mean by prescriptive grammar as opposed to other types. A prescriptive grammar is a set of rules detailing how someone (whoever made those rules) thinks a language should be used, whereas a descriptive grammar is simply a codification of how a language is actually used by its speakers. In the context of this debate, descriptive grammar is an acceptable and less harmful alternative to prescriptive grammar; however, I should not be construed to be arguing expressly for it.
My argument is comprised of two stages: First, that prescriptive grammar is largely unnecessary in modern times, and second, that it is harmful to children, and especially to minorities. These conditions (assuming I fulfill my burden in demonstrating them) should be sufficient to make the case that prescriptive grammar does more harm than good.
This is how all newbs should respond to us ragging on their lack of punctuation and failure to find their shift keys.
Looks like there are placeholder pages set up for Justice and Mac DeMarco. Substituting other random artists gives a "page not found" response. Not sure if that really means anything, but seems worth pointing out.
Their names also appear under the Lineup heading on the "This Page Does Not Exist" page. I'm not sure how the rest of that list compares to the announced lineup so far, but someone might take a look.
Looks like there's also placeholder pages for Brandi Carlile, Bryan Adams, Dada Life, Mother Mother and Wild Feathers. Seems like we might be in for a decent amount of adds soon.
Oh, and Banks too!
