Sentence: Hitting the "Create-a-Word" button on Verbotomy, purpleartichokes was "rewarded" with James' pre-programmed response: “Membrrrr” Loading: Checking dictionary for possible matching words... Spelling: Looks like your keyboard got stuck on one letter. Do you want to spell it like that? Existing: As expected, with such random letters Membrrrr does not match any existing dictionary words. Unique: And... (another insult that didn't copy. Care to fill in the blank James?) Purple now suspects that James is not only the host, but also a membrrrr.

Are you suggesting that the our automated tech support and creativity hints are a little icy? ~ James

I dunno James, why don't you just make the comments more succinct; say something like, "Wow, that's a really, really, crappy word! Care to join another site?", and give a link to Hooked on Phonics. Of course I jest... I love the verbsnottery! And thanks for the sentence! Jamagra, I think Miss Speller may be a better moniker for me.
