It’s gaming licence? It is, is it?

What is it about pointing this kind of obvious oversight out that gives you such a thrill Poetix?

Well you know, JB is always pointing out the Canberra Times journos’ inadequacies, so the fact that JB hasn’t mastered the apostrophe after seven years is unsettling.

Oddly enough gaming is actually correct

Ah the english language can be a minefield!

There used to be an errant apostrophe in the article, since corrected. I wasn’t commenting on the word ‘gaming’. But now you’ve raised the issue, it does seem to be a euphemism for gambling, that sounds far less harmful. Almost gambolling in its innocent fun.

I’m not referring to the Italian Club in particular here, but to pokies in general.

Now i really do feel like an idiot! my apologies to you i-filed.

Considering your sole interaction is to press one button, if “playing” the pokies is “gaming”, they must be the worst game ever.

Shhhomehow I think you missed the point of the discussion …

And exactly what of any substance have you contributed to the post?? Hmm that’s right absolutely nothing!

It’s “gambling”, despite what the industry might like.

The first five comments related to apostrophe use???? Sorry Poetix give up – it happens everywhere.

Returning to the Iti club. It was A big night there last night.All the old Itiscameoutofthe woodwork to offer support,although the other supporters were left to lift gaming revenue.

Don’t worry about the machines – get into Zierholz’s Amber Ale there at $4.50 per schooner.Beautiful full-bodied ale,cold, with a crisp head. Yum

It causes me pain to see them wrong. I’m sure JB can cope with my persistence.

And I’m not the only pedant.
