10.4: Change Mail.app's message priority flags
Authored by: freakindesign on May 21, '05 04:33:19PM

You make a song and dance about punctuation and grammar, only to say "I shutter to think" in your rebuke? Tsk. Go and stand in the corner and think about what you've done.

When your copy of Tiger shows up on Monday, try out the excellent dictionary widget and search for these two words:

  • Shutter
  • Shudder

If you're going to be pedantic, you should take the time and effort to be correct. I suggest you take an English class... ;)

Here endeth this lesson.

I'm to take English lessons from someone called "freakin"? ;-)

Darn. I did spell and grammar checked that post too!

At any rate there would seem to me to be a difference between my forum post and a "permanent" fixture in Apple's mail client. E-mail being the Internet's killer application and all.

And, actually, you help make my case. It took less than a day for you to point out my mistake -- and attack it without hesitation. Meanwhile, Apple's employees have confirmed Mail.app over the course of months.

Given the haughty, superior, nose-in-the-air tone of your original critical post... yes, you are.

And, apparently, I need lessons on how to avoid double-posts...

Spell and grammar checks most often only catch typos. (I am however surprised that Word accepts both 'I did...checked' and 'I did ... check'.)
