    I think something worse than 'americanisms' is this horrible habit of the 'lift' at the end of a sentence so it always sounds like a question. People who do this are under the illusion it makes them look intelligent.
    Another bugbear is people who have to keep using the word Basically, when it adds nothing to the sentence.
    Also people who start a sentence with the word 'so'
    And finally, the scouse accent. Ban it

    So basically (in fine scouse accent) ^^ :p
    Taxlossloz is saying he had a post called 'seriously' i think that was right? Tax??
    The title was changed (by me) also forgive me for my two decades living in the US but I have some of their bad speech habits that 8 years on I am still struggling to lose.

    Reason it was changed is we are trying to get you all to use helpful titles to aid and assist other users.
    'Wot bout dis' (and yes I have seen worse)
    Should be 'What do you think of SLX25?'

    You see the point, ya nay daff kid!

    However when I chamged the title of Taxlossloz thread I had a brain fart and could not thinknof a subitable descriptive title for the thread so I guess in retrospect 'my bad dude'

    Some will notice post titles change but that is only an effort to make them accurate about content to help others as well as the search feature return good search results.

    Please just pay a little more care to titles and they wont need adjustment in future.

    Many thanks.

    As for speechisms 'yo, Taxlossloz, we cool bruv?' :p
