The troll hath returned.

Therefore, I have put The Father's curse upon him.

I think the only curses you can get via the internet are usually called 'viruses'. Which is a bit harsh.
Although if you can magically cast spells using a basic cable internet package, may I suggest a calming spell? Preferably one targeted at users who post angry messages on every forum they can find about how no one takes their cult seriously, or anyone who throws themselves savagely into a flame war and gives themselves a real life ulcer while arguing that pirates could indeed beat ninjas.

What are you talking about? Capitalization? Pluralization?

"In English, the plural of ninja can be either unchanged as ninja, reflecting the Japanese language's lack of grammatical number, or the regular English plural ninjas"

Seriously, if you're going to nitpick over something as stupid as grammar/spelling, at least make sure you're right.

Egads, I didn't know you were going to whip out something as reliable as wikipedia on me. Also, relax. I was joking around. But since the internet is such serious business:

If people could properly use things as "stupid" as spelling and grammar, I wouldn't have to nitpick them, now would I? Language is a poor enough form of communication without mangling it.

Look, I can quote without citing my sources also:

"Japanese has no plural forms for common nouns – the plural of “ninja” is “ninja” and the plural of “samurai” is “samurai”. “Ninjas” is an anglicisation accepted through common use. “Samurais”, though horribly inelegant, would also be tolerable by that principle."

"Anglicisation or anglicization is a process of conversion of verbal or written elements of any other language into a more comprehensible English for an English speaker.

The term most often refers to the process of altering the pronunciation or spelling of a foreign word when it is borrowed into English as English is a very pliable language. Personal names may also be anglicised – the name of an immigrant to England becomes anglicised as he or she integrates into the society."

"Word: A sound or a combination of sounds, or its representation in writing or printing, that symbolizes and communicates a meaning and may consist of a single morpheme or of a combination of morphemes."

Mangling it? Isn't that a bit of an overreaction?
I pluralized something that is generally accepted by the English speaking community as correct. As English is my first language and I am posting to a generally English crowd (I know not everyone is, but those who don't speak English as a first language can at least read it for the forum) then I don't think that needs correcting. It's as inane and unnecessarily stuck up as me saying 'It's colour, not color. Silly American English writers.'
But thanks for the added snark, it makes you seem so much less snobby.

Okay, I give up. This is so utterly stupid I can't believe it. What's wrong with you? Seriously? Chill out. You win and all that. Just stop complaining. If you didn't like my joke, you could've ignored it.

Dungeons, you're just as much in the wrong for being so rude about it. You could've just said it was a joke, apologized, and left it at that. Instead you had to be condescending and insulting. That automatically puts you in a lower pit than anyone else to everyone else.

I see that I will have to deal with this myself.

Creatures of mist, Beings of Fog,
Turn dungeonsofdorks into a hedgehog.


Looks like we'll be having Pig Newtons for breakfast tomorrow!

I'll never understand why people keep Hedgehogs as pets. I mean, sure they're cute but don't you get stabbed every time you play with them? It seems to me it's the adorable equivalent to having to feed and clean up after the knife drawer.
