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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
