Default Please don't cast the first stone

Yes, we should review our posts. However, if one does not know the basic rules of spelling and grammar, our posts will remain incorrect. Further, "Doug", you are not blameless in this regard. "Its" does not require an apostrophe when used as a possessive.

Can we please return to discussing cruises?

Thank you Grammar.

I am guilty when it comes to grammar....but, and this is the truth, I have forgotten some punctuation principals. Commas, etc. And the strangest thing is that I have forgotten the proper usage of to and too. At least I am being honest about it!

I agree that we should stick to cruises. These are not essays for teachers to correct.They are our honest opinions about our cruises one way or another and we should appreciate each other's willingness to share. It's okay to have fun once in awhile but let's not get carried away. Thanks Grammer_Teacher, for reminding us. Lynne

Back off Grammer Teecher - My post was intended to be light. No personal attacks, especially in another topic.

spelling and grammar can be overlooked, but sometimes (and I am talking about extreme examples) I cannot figure out what some people are posting when the include NO punctuation.....an occational comma or period goes a long way.
