Nice try, but you're a wee bit off in that color ;)

Not to burst your bubble, but it should be "than", not "then". Even then, it's still horrible grammar. If you're going to imitate me, at least do it in proper grammar like I do.

This is a bit mad. Mad as in insane. I'm more taken aback rather than angry. I really didn't think I had upset anyone this much. :lol:

Lol, I don't think anyone should be upset by you. You never do anything in the least to make me angry anyway.

Lol yeah, that's why it's mad.

What did I do to deserve this scathing wit-filled attack?! :P

I think he's answered it before, and the answer basically amounts to "Because I can." Also, I'm pretty sure we've all stopped paying attention to the different font color, and this thread just attracts attention to it.

Frankly, I think it's nice he chooses his own colour like that.
Also, I laugh with scorn at those who try to give others bad names by either blacktalk, imitation or other ridiculous means.

What do you even have to do with this whole post? I just posted a thread about attention, and I got it. What gives you the right to critique my grammar? Who ARE you?

You got attention because you're an idiot. This is the wrong kind of attention that you go intentionally looking for, degenerate. Image Next time before posting a troll thread, do it in intelligible English, please. Or Russian. Or anything, as long as you don't post crap like "I post in a different color then everybody." Let me break that down for you since you're too stupid to see just how big of an error the E replacement for the A was. Correct version- "I post in a different color than everybody else." Just saying "I post in a different color than everybody." is incorrect, as 'everybody' isn't doing anything in the sentence. You could say "I post in a different color than everyone.", or add an 'else', but just saying 'everybody' is incorrect. The words everyone and everybody are not synonymous. Now for the 'then' part- 'Then' is a transitory verb signaling an immediate advancement of time. You connected two sentence fragments by saying then. "I post in a different color, THEN everyone." Even that is incorrect since using 'then' indicates that you're narrating from perspective that's advancing from a first person standpoint but follows the words in real time, as in, the narrator doesn't know what happens next. Example: A sports announcer. I'm sure your illiterate ass is familiar with a NASCAR announcer screaming which car takes the lead on its two-hundredth left turn. This is incorrect since you switch perspectives from a direct first person to a memoir version of first person- "then everyone" would be preceded by "I posted in a different color", not "I post in a different color". Of course, by this point, fixing that error would be somewhat moot. Considering you said "then everyone", you had to follow up the pronoun with a verb. The only acceptable versions of your sentence would be "I posted in a different color, then everybody else asked why.", or, "I post in a different color than everyone else."
