Re: Prescriptivists

I only used it for the direct quote. I listed a book, which I own, for the actual reference... You forget that I said "more logical. " I was referring to correctness, not logicality... . Besides, that was also aimed at Tails' s comment about erroneous grammar: When Things2do gets caught m...

Re: New Jersey 2019

NJ should get two bids for both divisions. That would really give teams that aren't WWP or Community some motivation. To be fair, Monty is already pretty close to us.
