Perfect grammar might be tough for some people. Anyways, I will place a safety vote for 4WHEELS again.

I presume that it is up to MATHGEEK. It was my understanding that he is the rules judge.

From the Memo, is it to be believed that all the firings were people who hadn't voted?

That's what I got from it. However, that seems to be a lot of people.

I will keep my safety vote for HABS right now.

EDIT: 6-1 victory for Sens.

Go Sens.

I will keep my sentences short because I hate commas, and I don't want to use them incorrectly. I am going to put in a safety vote for GYMBOY. Do you guys want to clear someone this round? I just want to thank the boss for sending out the memos fast. I appreciate it.

I like the new rule. Lets see how the folks fare with using proper grammar when the SMS language is killing it.

Anyway, I had voted for HABS on my way in as a safety vote.

Yeah it's great to see we aren't waiting an age between rounds; this is the way it should be

It's very safe to assume that all fired were mandatory firings as there can only be a maximum of 3 people fired each round.
The new rule...it will probably be a struggle as there are certain words I shorten like 'you're' becomes 'ur' etc.

I'll safety for OMAR for now until we decide whether or not we are clearing anyone or if we would prefer a Majority of One situation?

Jayo, I was this close to striking you for ur, but because it was correct in context, I'll let it pass.

I voted for Faith, for no particular reason, but I do think we should consider clearing someone this round.

MathEdit: STRIKE for not capping Faith.

Thanks for the fix MATHGEEK. What did I do wrong? Can you PM me the right way to do it?
I will take the strike as you are the judge. But technically grammar and spelling are not the same. Spelling is the way a word is spelled and grammar is the correct use of a language. I should proofread my posts better I guess. Yes, they were spelled wrong, but it is not that I do not know how to spell, my keyboard sticks (as you can see, two of them had missing letters) and the third was a typo (I know that does not change the fact they are wrong. I just wanted to point out that I am not an idiot). I can spell. I grew up in an era pre-computers and pre-spellcheck. We were expected to know how to spell. We hand wrote everything and a teacher would stop reading an essay at the 3rd to 5th spelling mistake (depending on the teacher). Excessive "White-Out" was not allowed so we became better spellers. You didn't want to have to rewrite an entire essay because you made a mistake on page 10.

Shouldn't "give" be GIVEN?

I will join the OMAR vote.

Strike Jayo, "walking the line there, boss!"

Womp womp.

Strike HABS again.

"Thank for the fix, MATHGEEK."

Commas, commas.

Also, HABS, nagnagnag. I'm not subject.

EDIT: Strike DCF for not capitalizing Faith.

Oh, and HABS, I know you are not an idiot, but everybody slips up once in a while.

What you need to do to get those pics to work is use the i##.tinypic url instead of the www.tinypic one.

4WHEELS-SEEKRGRL (??)
BUU-HABS
DCF525-FAITH
FAITH-HABS
FLEETWOOD- He has not posted yet this round.
GYMBOY-OMAR
HABS-OMAR
JAYO-BUU
LILY- She posted earlier but did not say who she was voting for.
OMAR-GYMBOY
SEEKR-4WHEELS

There seems to be a possible majority forming with all of the vote for OMAR.

BIBLIOPHILE. So, MATHGEEK, does spelling count as grammar? And yesterday, I was at school and the second I got home my family left on a trip so I couldn't get online until today. I don't believe that I voted. If I'm not fired next round, I think I voted SEEKR.

Since I was given a strike for typos, then I would think it does. This being said ,why are you pointing out other's mistakes? The only reason I can see for it is to get them a strike. We have to play as a team to win. Getting your teammates fired does nothing to aide in that goal.
Seems pretty rat like (or maybe even boss like) to me.
