I am feeling a bit wary of someone who has had such a bad week.

But there's a forum here called Pedants' Corner where those who are riled can commiserate together. And those who don't like grammar/spelling threads can easily hide the whole lot.

So I share your view, but think YABU to post here.

I think this was pointed out to the OP in one if the first posts on that thread.

Have people been using it as a verb? How is that even possible? shock

One can't, unless <shudder> someone is "patronaging". But that wouldn't happen here.

you'd think so wouldn't you

unfortunately not

a typed scream is not quite as useful as a real one - but due to swelling around my mouth I can only whimper (and whinge DP would add)
