  • Ball-0-fire Sorry you missed the point of the blog. You may not like my style and that is okay.

    I am sensing you may have had a bad day and that your perception of my style was the straw that broke the camel's back -so to speak.

    Hope you are feeling better. I am glad I was there to help. :)

    So let me see if I have this right. After reading almost one whole paragraph of a roughly ten paragraph blog, you find it necessary to insult the author rather forcefully on perceived grammatical errors and subject matter. I'm no English teacher but I really only saw one glaring error in the amount of the blog you read and that was one error in tense.

    I repeat: Class act all the way!

    btw Betsy,

    Don't let haters and trolls like him influence you, keep writing what you feel!

    Thank you for the support. You are correct. Tense is the error.

    I will let the blog remain as is and I am certain you will understand why.

    Have a great day.

  • Judging from ball_o_fire's defensiveness and his "classy" picture, I'd wager that he fits in with the kids who don't take responsibility for their education. Then again, experience has taught me that those who nitpick on grammar online usually do give a crap about their education, but fail their etiquette classes.

  • ball_o_fire,

    For being so critical about Betsy's grammar, you forgot to check your response to her blog. I would hope that you would want to receive the same level of criticism as you seem to so easily dish out. So, I thought I would I take a moment to help you out!

    This was your response: boogady boo!

    It only seems appropriate that you should capitalize the first letter of this exclamation. Therefore, your response should look something like this: Boogady boo!

    Seriously, ball_o_fire, you should have at least one person read your responses before you submit.

  • Thanks for the insight BJO as it is an astute observation and right on the mark.

    JJM - :)
