One of the things you might experience while being here are the Grammar Nazis. Here is a little something for you to know to survive on this site

You might hear words on CM you don't normally hear anywhere else so here is a few of them that will help

and whatever you do, DO NOT post your personal problems in a huge group like this one unless it's anonymous, or draw to much attention to yourself cause you will be eaten alive!

Oh and just in case you are wondering..This is a troll

Does anyone has anything they like to add for the new members? Lmao!

I don't think I have heard the F word enough on this forum.  (sarcasm) 

People really need to utilize the vast vocabularies with which they have been gifted and see if they could possibly substitute a non-curseword once in awhile.  Really!  It's fun!   Try it!  ;)
