    Yeah, that.

    Seriously, I don't know where this came from. People used to say couldn't, and then it all of a sudden turned into could. I never understood why a saying would transform into a worse version of itself.

    While we're at it may I just say that the correct wordage is "could/should/would have", not "of" I understand that the truncated form (could've/should've/would've) could sound like the latter but it's not. It makes no sense with 'of' and as Old Biff once said "you sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong!"

    YES

    It drives me nuts when people pronounce "have" as "of," or more commonly, something sounding like "uhv." So lazy.

    I have to disagree with you guys, as the contraction 've is properly pronounced "uhv."

    However, if they type it "should of," yes, that is annoying.

    Well that's what I was saying; that I understand where it came from (the misguiding pronunciation) but 'of' is still wrong.

    It is I guess ironic in a way, isn't the point of the english language to rape every other language?

    I witnessed someone calling somebody else a "pre-Madonna" the other day.

    It's "prima donna," unless you're saying you saw somebody type that, but you would have said so.

    Well no shit, I didn't think that needed to be explained.

    If it was a person talking out loud it wouldn't have been wrong.

    Just like "should of" and "should've". You wouldn't know the difference while someone is talking.

    I've seen people on IGN use "Fuh Q" to get around the profanity rule.

    Haha, Diabolous you seem a bit uppy since you've come back. Calm down son, just a bit of English language. It's simply for his info to type prima donna next time.
    And people who say "should of" really piss me off.

    They have a profanity rule?
    So can they use the BBcode to get past the censors, like 'fuck'?

    That's pretty funny. GR cares so little they swear even in the reviews, although i bet the cunts at crave will stop that too.

    You can't say anything that wouldn't be allowed on network television. It has to be completely censored, like this- **** you, ****er.

    If you leave the 'f' on there, you can still be banned for it.

    Ahahah, what a shithole.

    Whoever dreamed up those rules should be forced to spend a day in the average Australian manual labor job.
    If there aren't at least 10x 'FUCKING CUNT!'s a day when shit goes wrong, the blokes you work with are gay or pussies. Or both.

    Seriously though, we need to come up with new swear words. 'Shit' is used more commonly than 'The' these days.
