    Since there seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding from the general public, I thought I would clarify this a little...la

    I don't know what your source is, but it's wrong.

    The plural of theif is theifs.

    Hmmm. Good to know.

    I always thought it was:
    (http://www.merriam-webster.com/)
    Main Entry: thief
    Pronunciation: \ˈthēf\
    Function: noun
    Inflected Form(s): plural thieves \ˈthēvz\
    Etymology: Middle English theef, from Old English thēof; akin to Old High German diob thief
    Date: before 12th century
    : one that steals especially stealthily or secretly ; also : one who commits theft or larceny.

    So one would say that a thief could be one that steals off the floor and off monsters.

    (I know ithe original post was supose to be a joke of sorts and make a point. I just think it is a point that is lacking in logic and brought up way too much.)

    Ahh that does make more sense.
    I really do like to keep up with the current definitions.
    Especially when I am skilling up my thief. I would not want to make the wrong Thief.

    So stealing the daily spawned rares off the ground is more thief like then stealing from a monster. Just wanted to get a gauge of whats allowed and not. Stealing off the ground respectable. Stealing from a monster not respectable.

    Also add this to your theft of the week i stole a keep w/o using a thief. Does that make me a badass thief....Didnt even have to use the skill.....

    Niether is respectable and no ones suggested otherwise (well no one that isn't a loser)

    And presumably that makes you a scammer not a thief

    Hey I'll give props so someone that stole a keep.. although that's practically impossible now. How sir did you manage that?

    I neither scammed nor did anything illegal. It was almost as if it was gifted to me. BTW this was less then a year or so ago....on one of the busiest shards where keeps sell for 100+ mill easily so i guess my theft has to rank up there eh? Ill go back to stealing balms now.
     
  17. Since you seem so ready to call other people out for stupid typos, try this on for size:

    Neither...la

    Ok i noticed this a while back, but i wasn't going to bring it up because i thought it'd be kind of childish...and then i recently found this post while reading through the thief forum:

    After reading that, i noticed this thread. So now i just can't resist...

    There were 87 posts on the thread, and guess who was the ONLY one to make the error...that's right:

    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=115305

    Apparently Rico isn't going to make the team...la.

    P.S. Think i'll actually make this my sig...better rush and edit that post before anyone sees it Rico, oh noooooooooo hurry.

    P.P.S. ROFL. I wouldn't put it past Rico to use then instead of than.

    ROFL. I wouldn't put it past Rico to use incite instead of insight.
