    • But the reason I post this is to seek ask for help.


    You used two verbs that were, in a sense, competing with each other. One can either seek help or ask for help. Since you were asking a question, ask for help seems to be the logical choice. Of course, the desired result is the same in either case.

    For me, the plural sits very uncomfortably with uncountable nouns, even a few of them.
    Try this one: http://www.usingenglish.com/poll/index.php?poll_id=241

    Ok, now there are two "were" vote one one "was" vote. So which one is it really? And why is it?
