Greetings, Jared! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since April. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Forebearance please Jared, computer course in the pipeline. I've only just arrived at being able to cut and paste at all, i will improve honest. The only time I've worked with computers was 35yrs ago and we had to start it up by entering a binary code plus it was only a retrieval system. So no more sighing one will get around these problems.
Hi jared. Please excuse a certain incoherence as the abstract is not always easy to pin down and i'm largely a self taught man (pause while you feel awful now; shame on you). The soul of the poet in me can make me elusive and effusive.
It's a preposition sometimes, too. E.g.: "You're sillier than a circus." You could make the same "There's an 'is' in there!" assertion again, but that's bullshit. It works just fine without adding an unnecessary element to the situation as a preposition, having "circus" as the object of the preposition in this situation, instead of this garbage about a subordinate clause.
Additionally, just to smartass it up, how could it possibly be right to leave a word completely out of a sentence?
Hey Jared, I'm glad that you have joined us in LINGUAPHILES. I hope the group is an educational process for us all. However, can I ask that you please watch the tone of your posts and comments? We can discuss our opinions, but I don't want the group to have a combatitive tone. Thanks.
With a delay of some 10 hours your name has just appeared on the master members list for 'Origins' (yet remains absent from the open list that displays the avatars or members pictures); but not to worry about this matter.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus and to the group "Origins" to which you have made a fine first contribution.
P.S. A bug or flaw in the counting operation of the "Origins members management system" means that it has not put you into the actual typed list of named members which I hold. This has happened before and the list has at least 10 members' names missing and not counted. Brother Richard who runs Atheist Nexus has asked me to find out what I can about such omissions so that the malfunction can be corrected. It also seems that your entry and picture may not have arrived on the list of Origins members photographs or avatars. Can you perhaps find it there somewhere (it should be on page 36 but is maybe elsewhere instead)? Terry.
