Shouldn't that be 'you are' and therefore you're.

GNHQ should know by now that there is a big "pedants corner" contingent on GN.

Oo-err, where mischief? Must be a typo because I can 100%, hand on heart promise that we all have a horror of those kinds of mistakes - this one in particular!

Anya Wed 18-May-16 10:13:37

Oh, the shame! shock

LucyGransnet (GNHQ) Wed 18-May-16 10:17:58

Right, someone get the hair shirts out - we shall be punished! grin

Did you know that everytime you misuse an apostrophe or forget to use one when you should somewhere in the world a puppy dies?

Shame on you Gransnet....puppy murderers!

Are you doing this deliberately to find out if we all still have our marbles?

LucyGransnet (GNHQ) Wed 18-May-16 16:14:34

<cries> But...but we love puppies!

trisher unfortunately we're not as wily as that... blush ahem, I mean, of course that's what we were doing! grin

grin I promise I won't put any more on GN but do have a look at the sentence under your Cornwall holiday ad. I don't really think you mean what it says but it's hilarious. grin

Brilliant grin I don't suppose the Tourist Board will be too happy wink

jinglbellsfrocks Sun 22-May-16 12:40:25

Why haven't I got the Cornwall ad? I've still got these effin mycotoxins!

jinglbellsfrocks Sun 22-May-16 12:42:20

Oh it's a competition. Yes. Very good! grin

phoenix Sun 22-May-16 12:59:56

I can't see a Cornwall thing!

Nelliemoser Sun 22-May-16 13:31:23

I don't have a Cornwall add either. I think I may have add blocked a number of adds but don't tell GNHQ.
I never take any note of any advertising anyway unless I have been deliberately looking for something.
Sorry GHNQ. I hope I don't get kicked out.

No, it's in the Latest column on the rhs of the page - last in the list. Click on 'Competitions'.
