Heck, I thought I had all ready started a "user page!" Ah, well.
I had my purpose all typed up. I'm glad it's gone, though, because I'm not sure how to defend one of my positions; that one being I prefer "use" to "utilize". The only other reason I created an account was for occasional corrections of "your/you're" and "its/it's" confusion.
Now that I've restated my goals, I'm more comfortable.
- "Reference" is a noun. "Refer" is a verb.
- If I ever reference something, you have permission to whap the back of my head with the blunt object of your choice.
- "Conference" is a noun. "Confer" is a verb.
- Since all I do is "talk", no whapping permission is needed.
