[edit] Sorry

Sorry Uh! Bob for elling you you sucked.

I was just bored.

Please forgive me :-)pertmywert[[]]

[edit] All them hyphens

What's the dilly-o with changing all the hyphens to... um... longer hyphens? I mean, could that *be* a more pointless exercise?

Nope, he's doing a very good job. More information on what he's doing can be found in this ALA article. Keep up the good work Bob! -- Tom 12:07, 21 Mar 2005 (MST) (See also Bob's reply here. -- Tom 12:09, 21 Mar 2005 (MST))
Kudos to you, Uh! Bob, for fixing em dashes, capitalization, and many other small things. I notice that you, too, know the correct way to spell all right, which everyone should know is not spelled alright—an ugly sight if I've ever seen one. (I realize we may eventually lose this battle. Strong Bad himself uses the nonstandard spelling more than the standard one, although it's nice that TBC have him try to get most things correct.)
I'm curious, what is your line of work or interest that you would notice and fix style blemishes with such vigor? Magazine editor? English teacher, perhaps? I myself am a commercial printer, and so I know what it's like to be down in the trenches defending minor style alterations to the illiterate heathens. It's good to have you around.

P.S. I don't know whether you know, but the U- in your signature (Ǖħ¡ βøв) does not display correctly on some systems (I checked it on both Windows XP and Mac OS X). The glitch, combined with the inverted exclamation mark, makes it kinda look like "hi Bob." Just thought you would want to know.
I changed the U. As for the error fixing, I'm only 15, and I don't work as any of those. I just like proofreading, as I often do on Wikipedia (under the name Evice, in case you're wondering). --Úħ¡ βøв 14:40, 21 Mar 2005 (MST) Oh, and does the U work this time?
Fifteen, huh? And here I thought all teenagers these days cared about as much for spelling and grammar as a root canal. Especially when it comes to the Internet. I guess that shows what I know—or maybe you're a refreshing exception to the norm. Either way, keep up the good work. And yes, the U- worked. —It's dot com 15:50, 21 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] CAPS to Italics

It's nice that you're going over the transcripts, but when Strong Bad types responses, we print them EXACTLY as he types them. This includes ALL CAPS for many accented words. Please leave them be. --Jay (Talk) 21:34, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
