To be completely honest, if I put the little -SS in my signature, it would just end up being stated twice, simply because after I finish typing up a post, I have the impulse to press enter twice, type a hyphen, turn on caps lock, and hit S twice. Now Kry's approach really hit a nerve with me. I don't know if I'm in the wrong, but it just doesn't fly well with me when people are unnecessarily rude.

However, since others have stated their dislike of the whole signing posts thing, I'll stop doing that here, or at least try to. If it happens again, call me on it (but don't be a douche) and I'll try to cut it out. But yeah, old habits are hard to break.

We actually had a large debate about this some months ago, the remnants of which can be found in my sig.

Kry, maybe you should take a cue from your username.

Do until there's a fucking river there. Then build a bridge and get over it.


OH SNAP.

Isn't Kry's username pronounced "Kree", though?

Also, Secret, I already made that joke! You fail!

OH SNAP? I have heard that joke for the last like 11 years I've been online. It's not like it's anything original, or even funny. I really hope you're being sarcastic.

But you see, if I hadn't said it like that, it wouldn't have sparkled an argument, and you would still be posting your silly -SS.

You of all people should know when I'm being sarcastic.

Dunno how Kry pronounces it, but the English pronunciation would be identical to the word "Cry." Swapping K for the hard C changes absolutely nothing about the pronunciation of the word that I'm aware of. I have no idea why we have the letter C at all, honestly, except that it looks cool.

Well to use it when you want to say something with a S-sound?

the only real use for c on it's own, sorta, would be when it's paired with h like in church.
