    it's not something which really irritates me but, Wilders should have an apostrophe somewhere, either before the 's', if Paul's name is Wilder, or after the 's' if his name is Wilders. i think that's right anyway :oops:

    i think it should be changed, it looks abit shabby and unprofessional as it is :cautious: have you ever read a post with awful grammer? it doesn't look good.

    The name is grammatically correct.

    If the proper name of this site was Security Forums, and you wished to indicate ownership, then Wilders' Security Forums would be correct. However, the proper name is not Security Forums, it is Wilders Security Forums, much in the same way as if, for example, someone named Paul Hunt owned a computer technologies company and named it Hunt Computer Technologies as the proper given name. It is Hunt Computer Technologies, not Hunt's Computer Technologies.

    Sorry for quick answer. Off to work.

    Blue is absolutely correct. Another example is "Ford Automobiles" as opposed to "Ford's Automobiles."

    thanks Blue. i was trying to think of examples like "Hunt Computer Technologies" but couldn't think of any. i know what you said makes sense now, but i don't like it :rolleyes: i hadn't really thought about it before today, but for some reason i think Wilders would look better with the ' :isay:

    Well there was a question about the proper punctuation/title/name of this forum. I thought Pauls comment here would answer the question to everyones satisfaction. :D
    So you see, "Susan" it is. :thumb:

    it seems we think alike :p

    btw, wilders is pronounced in the same way as wildebeest, but without the beest bit, and rs on the end. like this - Wilders.

    Oh great, now you've gone and done it. Paul will see someone refer to him as "that Wilders beast", and we'll lose the forums. :cool: :D
