    We all tried to see what we could get away with. My little nephew asked if he could axe me a question, and I went parental on him. It turns out he knew perfectly well how to say ASK.

    Gweedo, on half of my comics, when I hit the green, post comment button, I’m getting square download screens popping up, asking me to save my comment to my computer. It isn’t my comment that I’ll be downloading if I hit the buttons. And yes, it’s only on this site, and the download says it’s from this site. Maybe you’re using a different browser.

    Paul Jones She’s right to correct him now so he knocks it off and doesn’t take it too far. He’s only testing her. If your kid lisped, would you correct it or wait until later when it was already habitual?

    MrsLuke, Maybe it’s something in your setup or your browser and not this site. No one else seems to be having a problem.

    Before you throw stones it’s best to make sure your own house is in order.

    What browser are you using?

    I’m on Firefox, Mrs Luke. Also have NoScript (free download). The free AdBlock+ is also available. Do you update your antiviral ? Sometimes it’s a matter of turning something on or off in “Tools”, “Options”, at the bottom, once you’ve clicked “Tools”.

    Hi Skulker.

    MrsLuke: Is it even possible to correct lisping??

    tantebitte, yes it is. I teach at a school that trains physcal, occupational and speech therapists. The younger it’s caught, the easier it is to correct.

    I agree with you Paul Jones. Michael looked panicked. If mine looked panicked I would hear them out, then I would see if I needed to correct their grammar after I heard the story. When we get upset/excited we all forget manners/grammar at times! I don’t notice perfect grammar from Mrs. Luke, so pot calls the kettle black….

    Oh, how I know the feeling!!!!

    I’d probably correct him the first time and let the rest go. Correct him when he’s less excited.

    I did have a problem with a double posting on Cathy, but it doesn’t seem to be happening now.

    I have Firefox also, and have had problems when I push the “post comment” button. I get the weird page, then when I get GoComics back, it seems the comment hasn’t been saved…hit the “post comment” button again, then it posts twice!

    It only happens on GoComics, though; no problems posting on any other site…

    As for Elly, I think she should have listened to what Mike had to say. Grammar lessons can be taught at any time…he’ll learn :-)

    Did anyone notice that even Mike’s final statement is wrong. It’s either “I forgot” or “I’ve forgotten”. Kept up the bad grammar to the very end.

    As a former English teacher, I admit to correction grammar, but did listen to what the children were trying to tell me. Bad grammar makes me wince to this day.

    Both my parents had undergrad degrees in English, Doctorates in Psychology. Their offspring seldom got corrected in grammar. Do you think parental example might work? Wonder why I don’t swear either.
