    Just a point of grammar that nobody will read:

    SELL - Verb. Selling something. I'm going to sell my truck.

    SALE - Noun. My truck is for sale.

    I have seen people say "I'm going to sale this" and "This is for sell" so often, it's driving me nuts. The most awesome thing is that some folks are getting this exactly backwards. Cmon, people!

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Lose vs loose. Everyone puts loose for lose and it annoys me since I then read it as "loose".

    I loose gas milage in winter <-- Sounds dumb.

    Same thing with the misuse of "literally"

    The word means "In a literal sense: Actually happened"

    "My head literally exploded" is not proper use of the word, because if your head literally exploded, you would not be alive to write the sentence.

    "My head practically exploded" or "My head figuratively exploded" are appropriate.

    With the typical level of grammatical proficiency displayed on this site, would it be perhaps too much to ask that members need to over work HS educations to get their skills up to a level that would please you?

    i can not stand when people say "anyways" it is technically "ANYWAY" with no 'S' on the end. listen to people, including yourself talk. you will be amazed at how many people say it wrong

    The final comma is correct but optional when there are more than two items in the list.

    "Tacomaworld, and ToyotaNation are two forums" is not correct
    "Tacomaworld, Tundrasolutions, and ToyotaNation are three forums"
    "Tacomaworld, Tundrasolutions and ToyotaNation are three forums" are both correct, but the former is more frequently used.
