When people start a sentence with so, or I mean.

So I do that all the time.  I mean I am kind of offended.

Seriously though, I am frequently tempted to do this in an attempt to convey a 'conversational tone.'  I agree that it is incorrect - hopefully I catch most of them.

So, yeah. I mean .... I hate that....

+1.  I mean, so,umm............+1 anyway.         ;)

Lol! Errr , yeah, I hate that too. So... Lol!and emoticons are for 13 year old girls! ;)


Yeah I have to agree, lol ! Emoticons do seem kind of, well, girlish. I feel dumb every time I use one !

Vote Jonathan Fuller for AHA Governing Committee. For every yes vote, Jonathan will send you a can of Heady Topper.

*** This message has not been approved by Jonathan Fuller. All claims of free Heady Topper are in jest and not to be taken seriously. But seriously, he is a great brewer that is 100% committed to helping the AHA and all homebrewers prosper.
