The letter was written very well, especially for ESL/ExL / w/e. Heck, at least she put effort into her letter. Anymore the only thing I see, especially in WoW, is a barely coherent mess of letters thrown together. The first time I saw the phenomenom of "You looser" I knew the it was gonna get rocky. And just to get my rant in a bit: It's lose/loser/etc. not loose/looser/etc. "Ah dang, we loose" what's loose? You're "loose" as in a floozy? Your doorknobs loose? Your dogs running loose? Clothing?I don't generally care about that kind of stuff, but then I saw people at work spelling it that way /facepalm Anyways, I'm straying way too far off topic here. The letter was well written!

"Your doorknobs loose? "That's not really a question. In your example, "doorknobs" is plural but you used the singular verb "is". To ensure subject/verb agreement, you'd have to change it to "Your doorknobs are loose." Subject and verb now agree, but that's still not a question.To make your statement a question, you'd have to change it to either "Are your doorknobs loose?" or "Is your doorknob loose?". If you wanted to make it a really informal inquiry, which is what I assume you meant to do, then you'd say "Your doorknob's loose?". In this instance, you'd use the apostrophe since "doorknob's" is really the shortened "doorknob is".TLDR: L2Grammar Nazi.OMG, BBQ, lolwut and all that...

Yeah I know what you mean about the "looser" thing. My brother for some reason always spells it like that. I always correct him for that. Then, he spells it like that again the next time... For some reason that one just annoys me.

Did you seriously just type all of that to complain about a missing apostrophe????What a looser.

Don't misunderstand. I'm really by no means a grammer nazi. That's just one of my few pet peeves. Though given the TLDR I assume it was in jest or you're just quickly irritated. Either way *shrug*
