    I personally feel that some of my own posts in the following thread were quite witty and displayed a competent grasp of spelling, punctuation and grammar, but then I would say that.

    This is an excerpt from tis me lord's leaving speech (In which he articulated his opinions on several prominent members excessively). In it, you can clearly see him state that my very presence has the indomitable effect of improving his grammar.

    Now, not only is my own spelling and grammar impeccable, but as can be gleamed from the above post, my very being around improves other people's grammar. Now, if that isn't a reason enough for an award, I don't know what is.
    I think this post in itself is worthy of a prize - very articulate and well-expressed.

    I wrote it, didn't I? Articulation is my forte (alongside languid ennui, of course).

    You know you don't need a capital letter on 'in' in those brackets, don't you?

    I second that! Mr. White is always very articulate anyway, in terms of content and grammar so he should definitely get the next award.

    It's the natural thing to do with good grammarians.

    You then owe me hundreds of rep points in back pay; all of my posts are gramatically sound.
    Too bad you spelt grammatically incorrectly.

    I think LordH was suggesting it was disgusting because he had just made a mistake in his post as pointed out by MadNatSci

    They don't matter, but it would be nice to recieve them for good grammar, it's better then recieving them because they want some in return, or because you asked.

    All the rep I have recieved for good posts has been grey, but that's life, I don't mind. Anyway back on topic, I'll try to use good grammar as much as possible; and I don't want rep for it.
