    3. “It should say ‘goddamned’ not ‘goddamn’. Come ON”

      — but you’re ok with the underlining -and- colon?

    4. TikiGod, when it is used as an adverb, it is spelled goddamned, with the suffix -ed. It’s the same as saying ‘you are a retarded person.’ You wouldn’t say ‘you are a retard person’ unless you are goddamned illiterate.

    5. ah, you see the problem there? Illiterate isn’t being used as a verb, it’s being used as a noun. Take out the ‘goddamn’ and it’ll be a little more clear

    6. TikiGod, it makes no difference. When the word in question (goddamn+suffix) is used as an adjective OR an adverb, i.e. when it modifies either a verb or a noun, it is spelled goddamned, with the suffix -ed.

    7. You’re incorrect WakkaWakka. Goddamn and Goddamned can be used interchangably, and are often listed as synonyms of each other.

      See Free Dictionary
      or
      dict.die.net

      I think ultimately it comes down to how you were raised to use it. In my family I was always “The goddamn worthless piece of shit” or “That goddamn mistake we made”.

    9. The definition of “your” is incorrect. Of or relating to *yourself*, perhaps, but of or relating to “one or oneself” would be “one’s”. Second person possessive modifier versus first person possessive modifier.

      “Goddamn” is a colloquial contraction of “god-damned” (agent complexes are hyphenated -e.g. “government-mandated”). So is “goddamned”. They are therefore interchangeable.

      And “illiterate” is neither a verb nor a noun.

      It is an adjective.

    10. Caananite You obviously wrote all that without the benefit of a dictionary. Read this:
      Illiterate (dictionary.com) or illiterate (Merriam-Webster)

      You’ll notice that it’s listed as a noun there.
