Hold on I think cms is turabian.

god how embarassing.

o and i minored in english. had to take supplementary courses in grad school. my comma "usage" is atrocious. when I call someone an imbecile swine in all caps for being on the forefront of lingual evolution aka making "mistakes" I AM BEING FACETIOUS.

You know what's really crazy: I think I dimly remember a third layer of parethesis within parentheses.

ah I'm such a fuckhead I just realized on the previous page I several times used "parentheses" to refer to a single set of parenthesis (a parenthesis by definition being an enclosing set of the marks.)

that's why I didn't get an ma

so rbr just posted links that prove my point that both are acceptable and took is a buffoon to act arrogant about catching whatever mistake he thought he caught. http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/...n/faq0016.html

This essentially says parentheses within parentheses are fine. Wow, you spent the money on an English degree to be kinda sorta right about something. Worth it! what a stupid argument to have.

I was an English major, too, but it's been a useless degree so far.

A. If you are bothered by using square brackets within parentheses, either abandon Chicago style (because it does not suit your needs) or rephrase the text to eliminate the need for double parentheses.

This essentially says parentheses within parentheses are fine. Wow, you spent the money on an English degree to be kinda sorta right about something - like I said in an earlier post. Worth it!

Are you saying Chicago Style isn't credible? What is your point exactly? You wanted sources, here are probably the three most widely used style guides for academic english.

the kindness regime is made up of one sexist and mean white dude who calls himself that (ironically). go make a thread about taylor swift or some girl you've named for us after an attribute of hers so can easily regale us with stories.

lol chill out, we're just talking. why go straight to conflict?

i can't think of a worse reason to get up in somebody's grill than an argument about parenthesis

of course i posted that without refreshing and now realize this has spiraled into a whole argument by now

not what i had in mind when i typed my comment (you know, the original one hinting at a possible beef yo soy and fulltoke [not that i was taking sides or anything, just pointing it out {it doesn't really matter anyway, let's all just relax ok?}] and even if i was does my opinion really matter that much?)

edit: since when is ys-em censored
