  1. Would or could - as they means you have not taken the action you are mentioning. Christmas - this is a word taken over by business to sell their merchandise, rather than about the festival to celebrate the birth of Jesus. If we replaced it with say Jesus Day, i doubt that most businesses would be happy to use it to help sell their goods.
  2. Well there you have it then. Are they migrating? answer, yes they are, so they are migrants.

    hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia fear of long words I love this word but have never found a reason to use it.
  5. Hi Guys This is probably an unusual question. I'm part of a new health group and we are looking for a name for the group. Most members are in favour of "Natural Health & Education Institute" or something with "Institute" or "Foundation" in it. We want to register the organisation, buy the domain and protect the name. Are there any legal implications around using the word "Institute" or "Foundation"? If so, how can we research to find out what words/names cannot be legally used please? Thanking you in anticipation.
  6. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Socialist's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all). After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
  7. Hi Guys I understand that you want to be careful to prevent people who are incensed from posting things that may bring the site into disrepute. However, there are times when a certain word is the only one that can be used. The online s-c-a-m where buyers (particularly from overseas and notably from one particular area in a vast continent) seek to defraud unsuspecting sellers is a s-c-a-m and there is no other word which really describes it. That word is very necessary to get the message across to those who have no idea they are being s-c-a-m-m-e-d. To automatically over-write it with "scammed" makes a nonsense of the message. The term 'defrauded' does not project the same essence. Please will someone reconsider 'releasing' this word?
  8. Thought we should have this as well, so here goes a smile costs nothing nor do manners
