    Dear Member,

    I saw your methodology for shorter showers. If different for longer ones, I expect a visual to determine the differences and similarities.

    Dear members,

    It's not the usage of the apostrophe, it's the apostrophe itself that bothers him.

    Note: He even specified: "that apostrophe".
    Compare: ´ ; '

    Dear ObeyBunny and Silently Honest,

    thanks for your support.

    Dear The Outsider,

    thanks for the explanation.

    Dear Mystic Tater,

    using a multilingual keyboard, it´s easier to use this " ´ " apostrophe instead of the other. If I had my keyboard set to English, I would use this one " ' ". But, as I need to write in Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Italian, every day, at different times of the day, both for work and leisure, I will not bother myself with changing my keyboard settings every ten minutes. I chose to save my mental health.

    I hope you understand.

    dear members,

    when did being all up in someone's face over something that stupid become cool?
