Anyone using the word 'da' instead of 'the' deserves to be shot.

Also:

This is a comma; ',' please use it correctly. They indicate a slight pause in the spoken sentence and used where there is a listing of items or to separate a non-restrictive clause or phrase from a main clause.

They're = they are.
Their = belonging to.
There is a difference, please note it and use it. 'There' is another word, also different to the preceding two, please use it correctly too.

It's = it is.
Its = indicates possession.


Sorry to be so meticulous, however I felt this issue needed to be addressed.

Flame ahead! :D

This, is SOOOO annoying. Why is it that people who aren't even English usually make less mistakes doing that than people who are?

Da = yes.
Da in the function of "the" = pointless, stupid, and completely incorrect in every way.

Ignore this, I'm being strange.

Exactly, they are mostly native English speakers who writes like that.

:confused: If we are being completely pedantic here, your version is actually grammatically worse than mine. You have missed out the word Ďandí and instead used a comma, however, I actually accidentally missed out the 'are' -the comma wasn't required (yes I admit it, even the best make some mistakes. But I was drinking tea, eating tuna and incredibly annoyed at a poster, who shall remain nameless, at the same time).

Random fact: the word grammar comes from the Ancient Greek word; gramma, meaning something written :D

if you're making a list of three or more things things:
"I'm going to read, write, and take a crap"
then you only include the word "and" before the last one, not in between each and every item in that list. You wouldn't say "I'm going to read and write and take a crap"

Up until about a week ago, I never heard the word "pedantic", but since then I've heard it about 20 times...did linguists just recently discover its existence or something?
