Nicks
« on: October 04, 2013, 07:31:13 AM »
Why do people who do not speak any Slavic language insist on having fancy Russian nicks and they end up having them with grammatical errors? I mean like improper gender or case or part of speech?

Eyes hurt. Seriously.

In America, naming conventions are increasingly broken, forgotten or simply absent in certain subcultures.

Any eye-damaging examples?
