    Oh @leashedForLife you are starting a dangerous debate here! I’ve read some of your posts and I must say I could comment on some of your grammar to! :p

    That's a great link @leashedForLife - I have real problems wiv da grammer they uses. The one that gets me the most is using "of" instead of "have". For example, "I must of forgotton it". NO! :mad: "I must've forgotten it", as in "I must have forgotten it". Red rag to a bull when I see that!

    Anyway, back on topic ;)

    Absolutely! :D Fire away... nothing & no-one is sacred.

    BTW, i don't use "U" merely for convenience or brevity.
    I've been irked ever since i discovered, in my early teens, that English lacks a polite form of You - as in Sie [auf Deutsche] vs Du, & in many other languages. The capitalized form is a poor stand-in, but it feels more apropos when i refer to folks i've never met, or to humanity in general.

    Back on topic...

    Then again, maybe it lacks an impolite form ;)

    I'd say, "hey, you!" is the impolite form. :rolleyes:
    The polite form is formal - the "everyday" usage is for friends & family - or at least, known acquaintances.

    It's like the transition from Ms / Mr So-&-so, to using given names.

    But then 'Pleased to meet you' is formal and polite. We're not lacking a word, we have a multi-purpose word and don't need the equivalent of the French 'tu'/'vous'.

    But anyway... a dromedary.
