    I recently, for the first time in a while, revisited some old gaming forums I used to visit.
    I'm not being snobby, and the people were lovely, but seeing it made me really appreciate the good grammar, spelling, and general quality here of the communication.

    Perhaps it's a trivial point, but it's one I felt like making.
    So thank you all ^.^

    I agree - MR is literally full of experts (and wannabe experts, sadly) from just about any genre. I've seen the most obscure questions answered very knowledgeably in this forum, and when there are no experienced solutions offered, you at least get many well-thought out suggestions.

    ...and size of the voluntary force of Grammar Deputies and Pun Police is astounding.

    Place your hands on your head and step away from the keyboard slowly.

    While for the most part I agree, MR does suffer from a horrendous lack of hilarious meme's and offensive photoshop jobs

    Speaking of memes, I love the avatar, but to me, it's a trap has come to mean a wang where it's wrong.

    Good grammar and spelling just means as a group we're less cool than those other sites...

    Bwaaaaaaahahahaha

    lol I hope I'm not the tireless, pedantic, compulsive corrector sort of person.
    Goodness!
    I value more the good replies,
    and feeling others really think
    instead of spurting out the usual narcissism.

    She's a proper grammar, although I'm not her grandson.

    Snort! Like the badge. :)

    I figured that you were working together. One for the set up and the other for the punch line. :p

    Thank you this made me laugh to tears! :D That's tears as in the salty liquid discharge from the eyes humans often experience in times of intense emotional states. ;)

    Macrumors is one of the best community forums I have come across out there in any subject area. It has a large enough member base so that there is always someone around 24/7, and it is filled with friendly people who are both knowledgeable and kind to newbees. Try hanging around some of the Linux forums... they can be pretty ruthless with new people... goes with the territory I suppose. :cool:

    Generally most mac owners have obviously thought a lot about their purchase and want to share that enthusiasm with others which is why I think the board is so good.
