Deb of TWW Is Not Leaving Comments on Other Blogs Regarding Mark Driscoll

Deb rarely comments on other blogs. When she does, she identifies herself as Wanda (Deb) Martin and always links to The Wartburg Watch for authenticity. It has come to our attention that someone using the moniker "Deb" is posting comments about Mark Driscoll on blogs such as Between the Times (Danny Akin/SEBTS). This is NOT Deb of TWW, which should be patently obvious by her (his) lack of grammatical prowess.

    We were being tongue in cheek. Thanks for the correction. BTW-I (Dee) wrote it on behalf of Deb.I am a lowly nurse with no formal grammatical training.

  2. Guest
    Well, whoops. Maybe it is correct after all. It was a singular person and we don’t whether said person was a he or she. If we changed it to “their” it would become plural which would be incorrect unless it was a group of frat boys on a Friday evening revving up for fun and games. Deb, intervene here with a pronouncement from your expertise.

  3. Since the moniker “Deb” is singular, I assume only one person is commenting; therefore, Dee is grammatically correct. That is my pronouncement. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You know, blogging is WAY too much fun!

  4. Why does the phrase “hiding behind a proxy server” always leave me imagining someone trying to crouch behind someone who’s only pretending to be a waiter? What a strange world we live in! (or at least my mind does!)

    People can go to extra efforts to disguise themselves on the internet. Proxy servers are one way.

  6. Their:
    3.(used after an indefinite singular antecedent in place of the definite masculine form his or the definite feminine form her ): Someone left their book on the table. Did everyone bring their lunch?

    ?Hmm?

  7. Dee,

    I’ve been having a joyous time listening to the songs in our first EChurch service, which is now live. I suggest that our “guest” shift his/her focus in that direction. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. In response to the grammatical query, it is not correct to use the plural possesive for a singular noun or pronoun.

    Guest wrote, “Their:
    3.(used after an indefinite singular antecedent in place of the definite masculine form his or the definite feminine form her ): Someone left their book on the table. Did everyone bring their lunch?”

    This is incorrect. “Someone left his book on the table.” This is correct. Someone is singular. If several people had left books upon the table, “Some people left their books on the table.” Same rules apply to the other sentence.

    Deb and Dee are well-spoken, Guest, in spite of their humble nature.

    D & D, I like your assortment of worship music. Is this interactive (as in may I contribute to the discussion and/or offer some videos for your consideration) or do I just sit back and enjoy?

    Please, please, please send along anything that you like. It is interactive. I used to sit in church and think, “If only they would do “X”.
    DB, thank you. This old nurse is not up on grammatical minutia. I tend to write in the way I think so it may not always be picture perfect.

  10. dee,

    Your writing style is such that people can understand you and your style is friendly and informative.

    Grammar is there to help people effectively convey thoughts.

    I pray blessings upon your new venture.
