Chatterbox: Inkwell



Does anyone know who they are? Ive seen them around every once in a while, but onle a few times. I'm guessing that friendlyspeeelcheck is an SI, and I'm hoping to either get them to show their face, figuratively speaking, or have some guesses? 

Also, I decided to put this on Inkwell bc friendlyspellcheck is clearly very grammar-y and probably writing-y too.

Friendlyspellcheck, show yourself!

Ha-ha, you got me. I assume all the misspells you have are intentional, because you know I cannot resist them? Very well.

Incorrect          Correct

Ive                     I've

Onle                   Only

friendlyspeeelcheck   friendlyspellcheck

Grammar-y         Grammar-esque

Writing-y             Writing-esque


Also, I have no intention of revealing my name, although it is true that friendlyspellcheck is an SI, but if someone guesses me correctly, I will give in.

I'm fairly sure I know who you are and feel a bit mean guessing you...Icy.

Ooh! Let's start a grammar police thing! About ten people go in threads and correct people, under your code name! Like Nyx, if you want to join my force of police, you could be GrammaticBrain or something... Is this allowed @Admins? I mean to correct in a friendly way, for grammar's sake.

 No, I don't think that's a good idea. People best learn grammer and spelling just by reading and writing a lot. Let's leave corrections to teachers. --admin

No Leafy, I am not Icy. And don't feel mean, there is nothing wrong with guessing me, especially since I've told you that you may.

To Admin on La'Cross's post:

Let those who know what they're doing tell those who have absolutely no clue what to do the right ways-not just teachers. 

 I'm a different admin. Some of the "errors" in posts may be due to typos. I find it especially hard to type perfectly on a small device. While I do recommend people proofread their own work, they may not have always have time to catch everything, especially in a long comment.

I agree with the Admin, Nex. That is why I've only used this SI maybe four times, and only as a little joke almost, to be honest. I don't think it would be very appreciated if CBers just went around correcting spelling and grammar mistakes just for the fun of it. Lord only knows how many of them are actually typos. I've had typos, I just take the time, when I can, to correct them.

@friendlyspellcheck, darn, I was sure it was Icy...oh well :P

@Nex and La'Crosse, I agree with the Admins, and I think it would be kind of rude to correct everyone's spelling and grammar, especially if you're acting like you know everything and the person you're correcting doesn't, because NOBODY appreciates that and it's often quite hurtful when you tell people something like that.

Yay, my misspells worked! *embarassed silence* Uh... yeah, they were fake. Anyway, @friendlyspellcheck, are you.... Agent Winter?

OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'D SAY THAT NYX! Jk, it's not a big deal. I don't like to correct people's grammar because I think it's rude, so I'm not friendlyspellcheck.

Instead of doing a whole grammar police thing, maybe we can just start a thread for it. Like, an SI, or something. Where everyone has a grammar-esque secret identity, and we can correct eaach others mistakes ONLY ON THE THREAD, and in a nice way (because most of the mistakes would probably be made on purpose) And, like in all SIs, we would try and guess everyone's identity. Is this a good idea? Does it even make sense? It makes sense in my head.

Yes, like a grammar SI. A game, instead of a policing of people. I like it.

No, La'Crosse, I am not. But I will give you a hint: I am one of the people who has posted on thsi thread so far.

Aha. Are you Leafy? You have similar writing styles, so it would make sense.

Technically, "grammar-esque" and "writing-esque" are no more correct/incorrect than "grammar-y" and "writing-y." "Esque" is not more correct, it's merely a more pretentious way of saying "ish" or "y"; in other words, both suffixes are informal colloquialisms, which makes neither actually correct.
