So this has ALWAYS been a pet peeve of mine; since the beginning of my Sleuthing.

*NOTE: This is not as big of one as the waiter/waitress 'fiasco' was*

Take a look at Sleuth Admin's detective page, for example.

Order o Socrates: Good(10)
Arcanum Brthrhd: Good(10)
Cosa Nostra: Poor(-3)
Eastern Triads: Good(10)
Circle of Light: Poor(-2)
Green Hand: Good(10) "

Notice that of is "o", not "of" in Order of Socrates
Notice that Brotherhood is shortened, and the word Dies is completely absent
"La" is missing in La Cosa Nostra
Isn't it "The" Green Hand, "The" Eastern Triads?

Now I know this was done because of margin widths, but can it not be fixed in any way? It's not only annoying, but also can be confusing as to what the factions are called. Perhaps they could even be shortened to just OS, LCN, DAB, GH, CoL, and ET? (Although that would be very confusing as well)

Just something that's always bothered me.

yay! Like autumn, says, VICTORY IS MINE!

Biggie. Biggles. Mrs. Bigglesworth. Thaaank you sweetie. But don't act like you didn't want to say it. Everyone loves fluff.

Few know that young Bobo was fluffing in Bulgaria before I saved her. They slathered cheap makeup on her and gave her a choice between that and sewing for the cheap clothing manufacturer H&M:

(Bad Ukrainian accent) Okay Bobbo, you floof or you verk de stitch machine, ok?

Bright brilliant bobo took the lesser evil. Poor thing, AlZ probably has her working hard on his zombie INFORMATION DELETED BY THE GOVERNMENT

Oh, pray for Bobo.

Lies! Nothing but filthy dirty lies! Bobo wasn't fluffing. At least not that I know of..... I did steal here away from Al Z's secret government research lab ALF style in the middle of the night. So I can't say for sure what Al Z was doing.... zombie fluffing research? Oh bobo! Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's it. I'm going to Shady. It's time to put some of the darker forces of the sleuth world into play. I'm getting my monkey back! Knowing what he charges for his usual services, what do you think Byron the Terrible will charge for chimpanzee rescue?

-Tom Cruise (with you there Crunch)
-Rednecks -(my inlaws grrrrrrrrr How the hell that happened I don't know?)

LOL Secret Squirrel! I am in a jeep and they act the same way with me! I learned very quickly that it isn't the people on the bikes that you have to watch out for it's the vehicles that are around them.

Be careful out there! We would hate for you to become Al Z's "Secret Roadkill" :D

I' am SO with you on the "screaming demon children" one. Especially at restaurants. I hate it when you are at a nice restaurant trying to eat a peaceful meal and perahps have some good conversation with a companion, and little chlildren are running around loose all over the restaurant. I want to go SLAP their parents!!

Another pet peeve is the all consuming, mind numbing, debilitating obsession of the male gender with the vast fluffiness or uterly deflated state of their [DELTED BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS]. I don't understand it. *shakes head in bewilderment*
