ExGingi: Good morning Dan, how's you day going?

Dan: It's going well, thanks for asking.

ExGingi: Wrong. Bh you woke up, thanks to Hashem as explained in modeh ani and even more in depth in inyanei shel toras hachasidus. If you would understand that sicha properly you would know that one doesn't simply wake up, it's not us who wake up, but rather thanks to the brachas of the rebbe and Hashem's help we wake up.

@Dan FWIW, this morning I was asked to read through the protocols of a certain factory. The documents weren't written nearly as well as the stories I wrote in 2nd grade.
(Yes, I went through English in grade school)
These protocols were written by an educated(?) man.
I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

There is no opportunity, just an opprotunity.
I didn't miss that, but is that typo any worse than what we see all over DDF?

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Now would be a good time to collect all the spelling and grammar mistakes from ddms.
Eta: should that be grammatical?

Are you serious?
You're comparing something informally written using an ancient WAP layout to a paid ad image?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Are you making less money off your posts, than they are off their ads?

Are you seriously taking collive.com seriously?

FWIW that typo probably doesn't stem from ignorance, but rather from carelessness. You see it all over DDF from people who know how to spell. And for some reason Yehuda57 seems to be מחייב all of us with his quality of writing, despite the medium.

Sorry for the ignorance, but what exactly is a mashpia? Is it the same thing as a mashgiach?

"You're a farmer" is a familiar taunt given to someone who doesn't move out on Shlichus. source: http://www.collive.com/show_news.rtx?id=42099
