Basic English Words

For all those that don't know this (more specifically those who sent an email to me today)...

ACCEPT: (1)To receive (something offered), especially with gladness or approval (2) To admit to a group, organization, or place (3) To regard as proper, usual, or right.

EXCEPT: (1) If it were not for the fact that; only (2) Otherwise than (3) Unless (4) To leave out; exclude.

They are not the same word and cannot be used interchangeably. Thank you very much. Now you will stop making the error and I will not have to stab you in the throat with my pen.

It's not just those words. Have you noticed just *how* many people don't even have the most basic grasp of the English language? When I'm browsing through other people's blogs, if I see bad spelling, then I move on immediately. I can't be bothered to read through such text as, "wad am i(!) sppsed to do? Tlk to dem agen?".

Gahhhhhhh!!!!!
