attn: mods

i made a small mistake in the poll above. i meant to put hte word "four" in quotes

so it would say "No I say it normally, using a single syllable and it rhymes with "four"

for the second option i mean

ah shoot i made a minor typo above, i said "hte" when i meant to say "the" but i believe the intent is clear

i also forgot to explicitly say - mods, can you please edit my poll so that the second option is fixed, as spelled out in the above post?

thank you. this is the closest to an error-free poll i've ever posted, i'm getting pretty good at these now

ah shoot i noticed another error -- in the sub-header area, not the post topic, but the question, which is in the grey line... i got cut off by the character limit. it says:


View Poll Results: Poll: Do you pronounce the word "tour" the same way that Bill pronounces the word "to


but it should really say

View Poll Results: Poll: Do you pronounce the word "tour" the same way that Bill pronounces the word "tour"?

so basically add "ur"?"

you know what i mean?

but also, don't add in "View Poll Results: " because it adds that in automatically

thank you

Shallowed are you serious? you pronounced it with two syllables huh? can you please remind me where you live? and is this two-syllable pronunciation the local standard?
