That damn site motto

Post by EvilSporkMan » Fri Sep 26, 2003 9:56 pm

Ok, this really bugs me. "An Idea Started, and still going with pride" proclaims proudly that
a) The idea was started (?!)
b) The idea is still going and we're proud of it

A gramatically better implementation would be "An idea started, and still going, with pride", but it's still pretty silly. :P

That way the two parts of the sentence don't match. It'd have to be "An idea that was started, and is still going with pride, which still makes the stupid proclamation I outlined above...
