    Disapointed!

    Dear Teachers or managers,
    First of all when I joined here I thought this web site was good for me, but after shearced several topicks I found out all of them have old dates. I understood this web site is not used much.
    Anyway, I guess you should improve this web site.
    Best Regards

    Re: Disapointed!

    It depends on what category you are talking about.

    But what does the date of the post have anything to do with it?

    Questions asked - questions answered.

    The answers are not going to change for most posts.

    Read my post again,please. You will see what I refer to!!!
    Before last one. There are many examples.....
    By the way, why does ESL prefer to use voting sistem for some Englis grammars? There are no any grammar rules? ESL will change some grammar rules or create new grammer rules by voting?
    I can advise you all '' Understanding and using English Grammar/Third Edition, Betty Schrampfer Azar''

    Re: Disapointed!

    The subjects you mention are not going to have new posts every five minutes. The may/might topic is small enough that there is nothing new to add. English does not change rapidly. You should regard it as a database of questions and answers.

    There are no any grammar rules? ESL will change some grammar rules or create new grammer rules by voting?
    Correct. There is no rule book, or standards body, for English that defines what is correct. English is defined by its users and that changes over time. If the majority of English speakers say that is how it is spoken in real life, then that overrules some authors text book. The highest court is the people themselves. Most of the time the speakers themselves don't realise they are applying a rule.

    There is a big difference between 'is' and 'ought'. I will let you read David Hume on that one.
