We'll see, wont we?

 

I'm just saying; if you want to rip on someone's grammar, you should probably be sure to check your own. :thumbup

Loosen up.

It's cool. I'm sure he was just giving me a hard time for being a Yankee fan. I'm fairly used to that! I also did egg him on with my case-in-point irony response so I'm okay with it.

 

My only question is this; should I have corrected the grammar within his response as well? :mischief2

I am using the semicolon to connect two independent clauses together into one sentence. In this case, use of a semicolon is proper. Source. Here's the wiki on proper use of a colon. Clearly, this is not applicable here

 

No, but you might have wanted to correct the grammar in his response.

 

Probably just a typo, but I couldn't help myself.

:banghead Freaking fast fingers! :owned

No. I'm absolutely certain that a colon should have been used instead of a semicolon.

 

My only question is this is an independent clause that introduces your question.

 

That the second clause is also independent is irrelevant. The colon should have been used here.

 

Other examples:

Like the semicolon, the colon produces a stronger pause than the comma. But while the semicolon generally separates two independent clauses, the colon separates an independent clause from words that will explain or amplify it. There are several different ways in which the colon is used. But the most important thing to remember is this: what comes before a colon must be an independent clause.

 

As you can see from the previous sentence, the section of the sentence before the colon--But the most important thing to remember is this--is an independent clause. It can stand on its own as a sentence.

source

 

Use a colon to separate two complete sentences when the second sentence explains, amplifies, or illustrates the first. Example: Jim had a good idea: He wanted to consult with the builder.

source

 

To separate an explanation, rule, or example from a preceding independent clause.

 

* After a sleepless night, the senator made her decision: she would not seek re-election.

source

 

(More on colons and semicolons.)

 

In fact, all of google (~20,000 pages) would take exception to your use of a semicolon in that sentence.

 

No biggie, though. If I were grading your post, I would have only docked you one point for that mistake. In the end, you still would've scored a 98. :cheers
