    Because Continuation

    This thread might be something the moderators don't want to see but this will probably be my last thread. To me, when I hear "because", it says "what happen to you before you did this". What do you think?

    and moderators, if you don't want to answer, let others try because you're not helping by deleting or closing threads.

    Mawes, your last thread with this title was deleted. If you continue to press the issue, you will get yourself banned. It is not just the moderators who are tired of this issue.

    Re: Because Continuation

    You, Piscean, The Moderators are the ones who think I shouldn't talk about this. I didn't see Mathew complaining and he was trying to understand but y'all just don't try a lot, y'all stop and think you are saying what you should say or what should be done, and then feel like doing what you want to stop me. If you are someone who doesn't want to answer, you don't have to. I like to see answers but I don't know why people have to reply to something they don't like when they can just ignore it.

    So be it. I don't think you have any idea how irritating your threads have been. It is time for you to wake up.

    Please note that the ones who think you shouldn't talk about this are somebody, but the only one who does not complain is a nobody on this forum.

    You are not a nobody, Matthew. You are an asset.

    Re: Because Continuation

    It is not that the moderators do not want to help you, mawes. It is that part of our job here is to prevent threads from becoming unnecessarily long, confusing and irrelevant. Continually asking the same questions over and over, even if they are slightly reworded, is not helpful for anyone. There is no reason why most of your threads should have run to 5 pages of posts. It seems that each time you are given a perfectly acceptable, reasonable answer, you become somewhat argumentative and sometimes you don't seem to believe that we know what we're talking about.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No, "because" usually introduces a reason or a causation. It's a not a time marker.
    "I fell, because I tripped" is probably the sort of thing you're thinking about.
    "I study because I want to pass the exam" does not fit your plan.
    "I hope she comes because I love her company." Doesn't fit.

    I think the following 'because' refers to what will happen to me after I did it.
    'I packed because I will go on a trip.'

    I'm not going out because it's raining.

    That says to you what happen to you before you did this- a superb analysis that covers all the bases.
