    Dangling Modifier... would this be equivalent to wearing your athletic supporter?

    Re: Dangling Modifiers

    I agree.

    There is no question to answer on the post.

    No request or indication as to what the poster wants by its posting.

    I should have followed my meager attempt at levity with the question of what was the poster's intention or need.

    If this is your homework and you want someone else to do it for you, I doubt that is the point of this exercise.

    If you don't understand what is being asked of you by your homework, anyone who can help, will help you understand how to accomplish the task without actually taking away the learning experience you would get by trying to answer the activities on your own.

    If you make an effort to answer a question, it is more beneficial to you, by showing you how to understand and craft it properly.
