If 99% of people pronounce it wrong, is it really wrong?

DashHopes 06-24-2013 09:06 AM

Yeah, that's an argument that's been going on forever. Even though I know how to "pronounce" it correctly, I refuse to do so.

If I say "jif" to anyone, they'll think I'm talking about peanut butter.

I used to say "jif" until I heard several people say it the other way. I figured majority rules and switched to "gif"

Are you saying you're a follow the crowd type guy ;)

Only when it comes to this. Nothing.... I repeat NOTHING is more important than proper file name pronounciation.

Luckless 06-24-2013 09:14 AM

yep, and .png files are "pings" apparently.

Often times the officials and creators of something are just plain wrong.

I didn't even know I had been pronouncing it "wrong" until today, I will still most likly be calling it gif, but I have to say it always reminds me of a short version of gilf :ROTFL:
