I think there's been enough waffle around the subject and it's time for a straight response to a straight question.

Is it or isn't it? I'd say it definitely is and I defy anyone to present a compelling argument to the contrary.

People have been sitting on the fence for too long: we need a firm answer.

I used to be very indecisive - but now, I'm not so sure.

It depends, which is why it is not a definite maybe.

It depends on the definition of the two it's...

As I ready myself for bed in the sleepy little hamlet of Metairie, I find myself asking a variant of this question: to be or not to be...

Ah, under internet rules, I believe this is the point where we get to take the debate off at a pointless tangent.....

Scott, although it's perfectly clear what you meant, you used an apostrophe incorrectly. Terrible grammar, end of the world, etc. ;)

It's probably something like autocorrect doing that. On the iPad its will become it's in some circumstances unless you say no.

How do you know I wasn't referring to ownership of something... ;)

I don't this has been resolved to anyone's satisfaction. Or perhaps it is merely that, like many rock music lovers of my age group, I can't get no satisfaction.

I'm glad that you are happily satisfied Doc

When will the committee meet to evaluate the situation?
Can't go out on a limb here. Need to build a consensus.

If you had put IT in a variable in the first place IT would not have been a problem and IT would have definitely been IT. At lease that is what Bill Clinton told me what IT was. On a family form I can't tell you what Hillary told Bill what to do with IT.

Cousin IT from Adam's Family? Cute, but hard to understand (must be a politician).

What is it, that is the basic of this thread. Is it, the correct use of it, or is it, the meaning of it, or is it that it has many meaning, or is it, that it, really has no meaning, or is it that it must be proceeded by a noun, or is it, that it must be proceeded by an adjective, or is it, that it must be left to the interpretation of the person using it, or is it, that it, must be in conjunction of the rules of politically correct, or is it that PC must conform with it, whatever it is at the time it was uttered. It has just screwed up my mind, if it wasn’t screwed up before I delved into it.
