    Several months ago I posted a thread that showed spelling wasn't important; however, it appears punctuation is...

    A professor wrote the following sentence on the chalk board:

    "A woman without her man is nothing"

    and asked the students to punctuate it correctly.

    All the males wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing"

    All the females wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing"

    Mayberry Saint, I guess you meant that because you're thread title says;


    " Puntuation is Important!!! "

    I thought Puntuation was spelled Punctuation...... [​IMG] but I knew what you meant!

    (I'm sorry I just couldn't help pointing that out)!!!​
