Wrong.

http://dictionary.re...m/browse/either

Example:You EITHER like this or you don't.Saying I like "either A, B or C" is absolutely non-sensical.

It is sad that English usage has been corrupted and now people are using words inappropriately.


You have referenced its use as an ADJECTIVE. When used as a CONJUNCTION, it is correct to introduce a list of 2 or more with 'either'. This information is not a secret. You just have to read past the first bit of the definition which supports what you are saying.
(HINT: it's even on the very page you linked above!)

I will agree with your last statement, however. But unfortunately I think in this case you are perpetuating that sad state rather than working to reverse it.

Love the fact that "you" made a new account to back him up, btw.

Because "you" obviously waited to pluck your CDC post virginity just to post the above right? :rolleyes:


My CDC virginity isn't something I really considered or was concerned with. I was reading the thread, and saw that you were not only totally wrong, but being a d*ck about it. So I signed up and responded.

Holier-than-thou people really bug me. And when they're WRONG, it's that much worse.

Actually, I find it very very suspicious that you "signed" up just to reply to me, LOL. No other threads worth replying to? Surely there are more posts "more controversial" than a dispute over the use of "either"I still think you're one of the posters on here, most probably Buttock.Loved how your original post got deleted though and I didn't touch a finger. But I am very surprised that you're still around even though you're definitely not a "new" poster. A new poster just doesn't go into a random thread like that, Lol.Perhaps comparing an IP address would do?

You can be as suspicious as you like. It doesn't change the fact that you're wrong. You can think I am Buttock, Bollock or Batman for all I care. Go ahead and do an IP address compare if you're that paranoid. What difference would it make, though?

That link doesn't do anything for your argument that it is WRONG for 'either' to introduce a list of 2+ items. I suppose it allows you to continue to blindly ASSUME that you're right, but that helps no one but you, really.

Instead, I refer you to your own link (http://dictionary.re...m/browse/either) which EXPLICITLY states that as a conjunction, 'either' can be used in this manner! That was YOUR link!

I suspect it is pointless to try anymore... but I will give it one more shot. I can't make it any easier for you than this:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q...n+more+than+two


On the first page of results alone, you will find four or five references which clearly and unambiguously state that this usage of 'either' is correct. Not just 'acceptable' or 'tolerated with prejudice'... but CORRECT.


Sincerely,
Batman

Can you guys take this debate out of this thread and into your own private messages?

My guess is that most people don't care.

On topic:

It'll be interesting to see what CDC members think of Doan after he plays against the Canucks tonight. I think a lot of people fail to realize he isn't as dominant as he once was. Or who knows, maybe he'll have a great game and 10 proposals will pop up...

Regardless, it is weird that this isn't locked considering nobody actually ever said that the Canucks were a finalist for Doan.. :rolleyes:.

Basically the only way he's moved is if the Coyotes fall out of contention and Bettman officially announced that they're moving. There's about .01% chance of both of these happening in two weeks.

But it's fun to speculate I guess.

Yeah.

I don't like Doan for personal reasons (the same ones I don't like Ryan Walter), but a player of his style would obviously look good next to Cody on the PP and with the Sedins if Burrows is going through a funk.

Landing a Doan would be sickkk. But I agree, defence first. We all saw how our D dropped like flies last year in playoffs. Watching Rome and Ballard as 2nd pairing has to be frightening.

Please get Doan, he would be perfect playing on the RW with Kesler and Booth. Even if it takes overpayment, maybe 4.5 to 5 mill, please sign him! He would be a very good locker room presence and at this point of his career he just wants to win, get him!!!

Why would you bother bumping this old thread when there is a Doan topic already.

Mods you need to enforce a policy where 5 year olds like this psoter who think they are "funny" get a warning for pulling this type of crap. So many people are going to be excited and then realize this was a thread from February. It really gets annoying because it is crap we see every day but so many people get suckered by this.

If a little bump got you that upset, maybe you shouldn't go onto the internet.

I think its more about why would you bump a dead thread from months ago when there is a relevant thread on this topic already. I agree people here should be warned for bumping an old thread with completely irrelevant information. It clogs up the forum with garbage.

I saw samjam99 or whatever as the OP and the date before I even clicked and took a look inside. Don't get you panties twisted, like someone said somewhere earlier. Are you one of those people that sues companies if it's not mentioned in their manual that your pet parrot might strangle himself on an eggshell or whatever the hell you might come up with?

He's not demanding compensation. There's just no reason to support jokes like this. Poster should get a warning. Why not?
