Aye, aye! Welcome to my message wall! Please feel free to leave a message here. I will always try and keep my comments positive, but please forgive me if I ever fail to do so! :)
I reserve the right to close or remove any messages that are left on my message wall at anytime, but I am unlikely to do this, unless they are for the following reasons:
Harassment — I will always remove harassment messages from my message wall upon discovery. Please do not restore them, because like I said, I reserve the right to close or remove any messages that are left on my message wall at anytime. Users who repeatedly attempt to restore harassment messages will be reported.
Spamming/Trolling — I will always remove these messages from my message wall upon discovery, since they obviously nonconstructive and have no value to me.
Personal Attacks/Insults — I will always remove these messages from my message wall upon discovery. While I am a difficult person to offend, insults and personal attacks are not to be taken lightly, as they are still not okay to do.
Necro-bumping — Usually I don't trouble to close old messages, but if a user necro-bumps an old message on my message wall that has nothing to do with them, I will remove the user's response, and close the thread.
Because the said punctuation was incorrect. It should say "SpongeBob and Gary try to sleep with Patrick" instead of "tries to sleep" since "tries" is the correct noun for one character, whereas "try" is the correct noun for two characters. And I'm pretty sure "arrive" is the correct noun for the first sentence "A crowd of hungry nematodes arrive in Bikini Bottom early in the morning".
I didn't contradict myself. I explained that you changed "try" to "tries" when it should have been "try" all along. And you can't say that I changed "try" to "tries", because I did the exact opposite. The past revisions don't lie. It was you that changed "try" to "tries" and it was I who changed it back.

But you did change it from "try" to "tries" in the revision. My edit corrected it. I also took a screenshot to prove it:
Oh, sorry. I think I misunderstood the validity of doing so. Exactly why is it that punctuation goes inside quotes, and why is it important? And why is it that people shouldn't put punctuation outside of the quotes?
Oh, okay. I'll make sure I remember in future. But I just wanted to know why things are done like that. I'm not trying to worm out of following the manual of style or anything. I just wanted to know why.
Yeah I know about that. It's not easy when you've been doing the opposite punctuation for so long. I guess my punctuation guard was down. When I rewrote that trivia fact, I forgot to check the punctuation I added.
I'm sorry. I did manage to follow the manual of style most of the other times. It's just it's very hard to follow the manual of style, when my brain and fingers are so good at remembering to put the " before the , when it should be the other way around here.
"these rules are customary in the united states, and since spongebob is an american series, we use american grammar conventions." Squiddle says. And oh yes, I should've noted that too. Perhaps the other way round is customary in other parts of the world, but not the US. Was always used to the other way round convention in my country.
That's just fine. I'll promise not to use it again. And I'll be extremely careful in the future since those edits that I did using my bot account back in 2015 weren't supposed to be made using my bot account in the first place. I should have checked to make sure that I was using my main account. As for the issue that happened in chat, I'll be careful to ask an admin or bureaucrat from now on. I just never expected that I couldn't rely on a chat moderator to tell me whether such a test in chat with a bot account was okay.
