    Question Continued? Continual? Continuous?

    What's the difference between these words? Is it "Thank you for your continued support?", or "Thank you for your continuous support?" And why?

    Re: Continued? Continual? Continuous?

    Continuous support- the support doesn't stop
    continued- they have supported before and now, but it doesn't mean that the support has been non-stop
