I have to write API documentation for a mobile loyalty program and I am doubting how to go through this...
1) The user asks its visit to be registered.
2) The user asks his/her visit to be registered.
In context of Technical Writing, which sentence is correct and why? If none is correct, pleas...
@Snowman I don't think it is suitable here unless it were more specific about pronoun use, and then I think it's a duplicate anyway. I asked the Writers mods because I think they are looking for more technical writing types of questions and maybe they could edit into something they would like.
@I'mmostlyjustanidiot yes. it's used in contexts where one person feels wronged by another, or feels the other person has wronged someone else. "What you said about my mum was bang out of order", similar in meaning to "out of line"
Is it technically incorrect grammar to make a hybrid of the well known statements: "Thou shalt not pass" and "You shall not pass"––this hybrid being: "You shalt not pass"?
From what I understand from not 100% trustworthy sources (Wikipedia), "Thou shalt not" is used by the KJV (Ten Commandments,...
@tchrist The flag system has caused huge problems for years, and now it is the direct cause of Reg and Rob's leaving the site; that's why I feel so strongly about this. The rest I don't really care about.
I cannot understand how @robusto and @cerberus feel about the various things that happened as described in that deleted meta post, but surely you can forget about this and move on, and make up with @KitZ.Fox?
@I'mmostlyjustanidiot I feel you should not feel this way when you are a relatively new user who doesn't know these users well.
@JasperLoy Being the target of meanness doesn't make you the cause of it. You don't own that. It's not your fault.
@Cerb, I'm deleting your screenshots because Rob didn't want that post available to everyone or he wouldn't have deleted it. He also didn't want folks ruminating over it.
@I'mmostlyjustanidiot You won't get banned for asking questions. I am curious to know why you are so interested in getting involved in drama that took place before you joined us. I'd also like to make sure that you know that you are only reading one side of the story.
@Gigili Which part are you missing? Banter or pics?
@I'mmostlyjustanidiot OK. It's a privilege, and I can understand that removing ownership -- removing that privilege -- might be painful. I am sure you can imagine a situation in which that is completely warranted.
And for context, you should also be aware that stackwide chat has been in serious turmoil, across many different rooms, not just this one. Reviewing room ownership was one of the tasks that was meant to help bring the situation under control.
@I'mmostlyjustanidiot He didn't do anything wrong. He wasn't using the moderation tools, so I revoked ownership.
@Cerberus Sincerely, I had that problem in highschool. I couldn't tell the difference in poetry written with an obvious intent and those that others considered unfathomable. It was all unfathomable to me.
Al those words.
