So many people on this forum suffer from not knowing the difference between "then" and "than!" So I want to help you guys!
Then = time
Than = comparison
I like Jimmy more THAN Timmy
I'm going to the park THEN meeting up with Sally.
"He's dumber then I thought."
Then you thought what?
"He's dumber than I thought."
I like vegetables, but THEN again, no I don't.
If you want to talk, let me get online, THEN.
People I've seen make the then/than mistake are:
[Kristin said it was rude]
and some others just too lazy to look. I hope I helped you guys out, and sound smart on the computer like you are in real life! Yayyyyy

Thanks for the grammar lesson, but it's pretty rude to call people out unless they're ok with it.
Thanks, it can be useful for people that aren't native english speaker. Actually I hope I'm not doing anymore mistakes about then/than.
Yeah, don't call people out. That's like that whole "Creep of the Week" on Facebook, lol.
Maybe pm them instead of posting their name in your topic. It's rude and not very kind, even if it's to help them.
OMG WHAT KIND OF GRAMMER LESSON IS DIS?
