Some words may be heard or used in niches, but I never heard it and have been around English teachers for many years. Think of general users, not just yourself. I repeat, users should not have to hunt around to see if a word may be a typo. As stated before, that word is not in the Oxford dictionary, so if it isn't in a major dictionary, it is not common.
Regarding BigMike's post, did you see on the topic that a user if over ten years quit due to the unfairness?
The word "pons" was clearly NOT disregarded because we continued from it. However, as you know, links to uncommon words have been a standard requirement for years. Just today, you posted an invalid word. From now on, no link to an uncommon word and it will be disallowed. People shouldn't have to hunt around several sources to check. Someone just posted a word that was not in the Oxford dictionary. Do you REALLY consider that common?
I firmly believe that the owners of this site are using this action of points via smart phone is aimed directly at the older members to force us to leave and take the pressure off of increased ban-wide and servers needs to satisfy the swelling numbers of new and less dedicated younger GBs.....Michael
As a follow uo to what I said here it goes:
Let me share what I feel the current MODs feel or care about us long time members. I have been barred from FORUM posting for going on 10 years because of my so-called excessive posting 10 years ago.
Most members are doing the same today but it doesn't matter to our caretakers any more. I remained banished and I have asked for a reprieve at least 4 times and still have received no answer or response.
I also asked the MODs to award us long time members those over 3.25 million points with some kind of a new vehicle icon to show appreciation for the members who made this site what it use to be:
But once again no reply or answer. My guess is that the MODs don't feel we were the ones instrumental in the making of JT's dream which came true and made this web site a value-added web site -- not any more -- just grab the points whether or not the posted prices are correct or valid.
I firmly believe
Good Evening ole_pirate,
I totally agree with what you posted regarding watching these videos. Think about this thing, the new MODs don't give a flying F*** about us members who made this web site great in the past years. I will give you more proof of that fact in following messages......Michael
