    poor grammar

    the word "pre" is a prefix for many words and is misused daily on TV and everywhere else. This is especially with verbs. Ex: prerecorded TV, preorder an item, it goes on and on. My English teacher stressed to us "you cannot do something before it's done". You can't "pre" anything. It's only correct when it's part of another word meaning "previous", such as a prescription. What are you guilty of?

    I don't care...

    I'm guilty of wanting to correct people that type ... their instead of they're, your instead of you're, I/me instead of me/I, etc. I usually hold my tongue lest they correct me for my mistakes.

    I just wish people would proofread what they type on here before they submit it.

    I think they do, they just don't see anything wrong with it..
