    do not talk upon maters in which your knowledge is surpassed by the average (educated) person. To give an opinion, as if it were a fact, is childish at best. Thus, please do not let your foul demeanour permeate a discussion that is best left to those who are versed in such matters.

    Your statements lack benevolence, and must thereforebe backed by actuality. Of which, very little is apparent.
    I'm not taking sides, but this one of the things I hate about TSR - posters labouriously going through dictionaries, in order to sound as pompous as possible, in a misguided attempt to sound "grown-up".

    It is especially painful when their username is "Gregory" backwards.

    im not sure how I'd feel but the people in this thread claiming they would disown their children and kick them out the house while also citing suicide statistics are unbelievably retarded lol.

    It is not an attempt to sound 'grown up'. I simply speak and write as I was taught to, and I think you mean a thesaurus, not a dictionary, but that is hardly the point I am making. Just because my diction is different to yours does not imply that I am 'laboriously going through dictionaries', it simply implies that I speak differently.
    And dare I ask, why does my username being my middle name backwards make it more painful? And why would I want to sound 'grown-up'
    But there is no point in bickering about it under this thread so please understand that I do not wish to sound derogatory, and I certainly do not want to argue over my diction.

    I'd take him handbag and shoe shopping, then paint his nails and do his hair.
