    A few years ago, some people began adding an ess to anyway, thereby creating substandard English usage. Sort of like those who add "ir" to regardless, making another substandard English word. Occasionally, a newscaster can be heard saying "irregardless" and while the person using it may not be uneducated, he/she sounds as if they are and co-workers roll their eyes behind the person's back. Same with "anyways", since there is no reason at all for making the word plural, especially since there is no such word when there is an ess added. When I was a senior in college a friend had to make a speech and used "irregardless" in his presentation. Yikes! I felt obligated to tell him and did, but, tried to be gentle. My niece recently said "anyways" when we were conversing and I hope my reaction causes her to rethink its addition to her vocabulary. heheh

    End of lesson.... oops... I mean end of post. :D :D :D

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
