    There are sites that I'm simply addicted to and I want to block them.

    Parental Controls could help. Have a look into System Preferences.

    Or just stop visiting them.


    PS: The word apps, short for applications, requires the use of the plural version of be, in short: are.

    Self Control (its an app) might work but it blocks for a specific time limit. It is also very hard to deactivate so you would probably have to wait until the time limit is over.

    Although regular self control would also work.

    Ad blockers such as Safari AdBlock or SafariBlock can block sites, but if you have a self-control problem, you can easily disable them.

    Well, the definitions in my US version of Dictionary place "seldom" before the verb in the examples of its use.

    But in my native tongue, the adverb comes after the verb, even the word seldom, so I put it there, as my English grammar skills are more based on a feeling than on anything else. That's why I seldom, maybe even never, "criticize" grammar, but as spelling is one of my language strengths, even though I might have my hiccups in English, I want to correct that.
    I've been proofreading text since I can read, thus sometimes my "bad" side comes out and starts correcting.

    And don't get me started on the genitive or plurals with an apostrophe.

    So, OP, what did you decide to do, or was MR on your list to block?

    I think I like the second option better. Even with PC, OP is Admin and can suspend the rules.

    Yes...

    Okie dokie, spinnerly's. ;)

    WHAT?


    So now you want to start using the apostrophe for singulars? That's a newbie.
    Why does this have to be a PG forum...? :p

    Btw, lys is Dansk (Danish) for light.

    :D

    spinner is another word for weirdo.
    It's more likely pronounced like spin-ner-lüs, where the ü is not pronounced like a y, I don't find an English equivalent for ü though.
