sheez what a prick. If you`re going to call someone out on the FONT they use, at least have the balls to put your name on your sign.

this is particularly funny to me as Comic sans MS is my favorite font and I`m broke as hell. Maybe I should open a lemonade stand, seems the next logical step...

I`m going to come out of the closet and say that I like Comic Sans! I use it a lot (and it if annoys some people then that`s just a bonus).

Using comic sans is nowhere near as bad as 6 !s in one sentence! What`s gonna happen if you leave the door open anyway?

I was just referring to the fact scuzzy forgot to capitalize "Fortune 500" in a post he was making about proper nouns needing to be capitalized. I`m sure it was unintentional, but w/e

Comic Sans is great if you want to make anything you write look like an 8-year-old did it.

Ah well, if we`re playing Grammar Nazi...

"Comic Sans" should be in quotes. It should also have a TM after it. The long hyphen should be a semi-colon. "We" are not a Fortune 500 company; the COMPANY we work for is. "Company" should be lower-case but "Fortune 500" is correct. "Lemonade Stand" should be lower-case, and should include an appropriate disclaimer, such as "not, for example, a lemonade stand", since no-one has specifically claimed in the first notice that we ARE a lemonade stand.

I`ll take the bait. Fortune 500 should be capitalized because it`s a proper noun. It`s Fortune Magazine`s annual list of America`s 500 corporations with the highest revenue.

@tedgp, what exactly are you basing that hypothesis off of? Mcdonalds is a friggen fortune 500 company, so who`s to say that this couldn`t be on a Mcdonalds office door?

Fake. Easy to tell it was put on a classroom door. A real fortune 500 company would have removed the message and put a correct one up in its place.

Use HTML-style quote tags. An italic tag would make more sense, but quote tags get the job done and save you two characters.

I think it`s better. I think basic mistakes in English are a bigger issue than a slightly informal font when it comes to professional image.

A better criticism of the original message would be the shoddy misuse of exclamation marks. A moderately well educated 10 year old should know better. That`s worse than Random Capitalisation within Sentences.

Why do people do either? I`m genuinely curious.

Nothing to say to this... so I`ll talk about something else instead.

How do you do Italics on these pages?

And what happend to the SPOILER button? I liked that.

Have you seen Oyster`s icon? what is she licking out of his navel? Frightening!

Does FancyLad really have 3 nipples like I heard?
