***Administrative Advisement*** When pointing out the rules....
October 29, 2015 4:10pm CST
Good evening, afternoon, morning, what ever it is where you is. I have seen a lot of you regularly reminding newer (and some not so newer) members of rules when a violation has occurred. Believe me, it really helps make myLot what we were trying to shape, a member driven site. Please do continue to do so. But I have on occasion seen it done, perhaps only out of mere over-enthusiasm, in a manner that was maybe not so nice and resulted in a rough first impression. I know this is not typical of most of you and I know what a great community of some of the nicest folks on the internet this is. So this is just a reminder to everyone to please be kind when pointing out the rules. If you have pointed them out and the violations continue, or if it results in a point of disagreement between members on a particular rule, message me or bring me in and I will take it from there. So keep being the awesome people you are! *Edit....this was not to call anyone in particular out for public flogging, nor was it an invitation to publicly throw yourselves on a sword. Just a reminder.

thanks so much for keep ing in touch with us I know from a previous experience in the old mylot that one should not retort back when someone tried to be rude and critical as then you have a two sidedd war. I got ca ught in this once and the lady that t old me she deleted m y p ost also she said shedid not blame me for being angry at what the other person had said to me but to stop the conflict she had to delete both our posts. I really realized how foolish it was of me to have given back mean retorts for mean retorts. I appreciate you rikeeping us posted. thanks

i admit sometimes i'm taken aback by some of the things i've seen here, both from old and new members. i'm still unsure about some things in this new mylot so i ask questions here and there. i will chime in on those i'm very sure about and try my best to word it as simply and neutrally as possible.

The first sentence confused me. Is it IS or is it ARE? Wherever you are or is? Logically, is seems right but habitually, well..there is an old rhyme..are you sleeping are you sleeping brother john....so it is not is you sleeping is you sleeping..kinda. English is confusing. Never mind. Good morning, I am still with my cup here so that is the reason for such fogged thinking I suppose. As to rules, most of them, I was born with or so I believe. I did read them ages ago, but I am hoping I am not hurting anybody. I try not to. I am sorry if I hurt anybody accidentally. When pointed out, I have immediately deleted the comment and apologized. I am here to learn English, make friends, learn about different people and their customs and the rules in their countries and how they solve problems and what solutions they would offer. Of course, somewhere in between, money making also comes. :)

Good question @vandana7 Are you what you are or what you is? This depends, as the English language is flexible. The English have different versions, the Scots are not always understood and the American's have not used it for centuries. For another perspective there is always... You Are What You Is

I think @GoAskAlice wants to be funny with this wrong grammatical form. It's something speakers of the same tongue can appreciate but something which can puzzle foreigners no end. Sadly, the members whose native language is English don't always think of foreigners using the site as well.

Rather than pointing out rules to newbies( although I do that quite politely) I often point out rules to those who are rude. I also do not like those who think they are holier than others and more knowledgeable. They do not make bones about making the community know about this in a rather pompous way.
