Way OT and Irrelevant - but its been bothering me

Everytime I post or reply, I have to sit and stare at this piece of poor grammar:
"Your post has been entered. In a moment you will automatically returned to the forum."

Can you pick out the error?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Way OT - but its been bothering me

uh..

Well, it's obviously written by an American.
He left out some letters/words. Is it because your lasy? or just because it's the way it sounds?
(British Accent)(American Accent)
It's Honour, not Honor.
It's Colour, not Color.
It's Al-u-min-i-um not Aluminium.

But if there's one thing I agree on its Tomato.
Potato, and Tomato should rhyme, they both are spelt the same, therefore they should sound the same.

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] If I concentrated on EVERY instance where this BBS grates on my grammatical sensibilities, I would go NUTS![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Yeah, that header has bothered me for a long time.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] But what can you do when instead of teaching the three R's in school they teach homosexual tolerance and sensitivity bulls#it classes.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Don't sweat the little things so much, after all every body makes mistakes.And it is far more important to listen to what some one means not what they actually say.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

Re: Way OT - but its been bothering me

Yeah, I know...its was just a bit of my perfectionism coming out. I posted this the same day my network (I proposed and built it!) at work died due to a hardware failure beyond my control. Since I am held accountable, I just keyed in on the typo. It actually tickles me whenever I see it because I can easily see making the same sort of mistake.

Re: Way OT - but its been bothering me

Here is the way it should look:
"Your post has been entered. In a moment, you will be automatically returned to the forum."
Missing the "be" and a ",".
