"ARG! Why do they only except paypal!!!"
I'm being picky but this sort of thing is starting to bug me...

The title of your thread implies that the suppliers you are dealing with will take other means of payment but not PayPal. The term "except" defined as :
1. With the exclusion of; other than; but:
2. If it were not for the fact that; only. Often used with that:
3. Otherwise than:
4. Unless:
derived from : [Middle English, from Latin exceptus, past participle of excipere, to exclude : ex-, ex- + capere, to take; see kap- in Indo-European roots.]


Now I would overlook, or accept your error except you also used the proper term as well.
"does anyone know a ONLY laser site that accept credit cards?"
:tsk:


Thanks for letting me use you to make the example. :p
now about all those using then in place of than....

Hey mfo ! You posted while I was writing up mine !!
Yours is purdier cause of the colors but I like my wording more !:na:

^^^You guys to are taking basic grammar to very funny new heights.

I think working with government employees is starting to make me dumber and more tolerant of poor grammar and syntax in the meantime:p

Do you happen to work for the GSA as a contracting officer by any chance?

Take month long vacations with no notice?

Ignore emails and contracts for months at a time?

Work on May projects in August?

Set your own ridiculous work schedule?

Yeah... I didn't think so:p

Tenured, grandfathered in, bureaucrats piss me off to no end:eek:

IIRC CNI doesn't accept PayPal. Most member based companies DO like Survival Laser, DTR, and SCI-FI laser.

I'd like to take a moment here in this necro thread to weigh in on grammar. I think it's important to use correct grammar but this IS an online forum; the emphasis should be on the content of the post not a few misplaced commas or than vs then etc.
With that being said, proofread your post! It shows you care. My girlfriend is a third year English major and she beats me over my grammar sometimes(I'll survive).

Also the primary language on this forum is English(as stated in a sticky). I think most foreign forum members do a GREAT job communicating. For that we thank you. :beer:
