It's grammatically incorrect. Versus is abbreviated to either 'v.' or 'vs' but never 'vs.'.

And don't even get me started on the double subject nouns.

Something tells me that wasn't what she was asking about :smile: .

My Response: It depends on the context.

Something just occured to me: you could simply shorten this to "women." You wouldn't lose any information, and it's grammatically correct :smile: !

Edit: Added sign of sarcasm, before it was too late. please don't kill me

Well of course. I hate these treads where someone asks 'What do you think/what does this mean to you?" without giving any context for it. So I've resorted to pointing out technicalities and other completely-not-what-they-meant things.

I think about blond twins in their underwear pillow-fighting.

What about this? I always see vs. as an abreviation for versus. You can check some sport site!


Anyway, I'll tell you later why I'm geting your ideas about that!

But this time you weren't true about them. At first I wanted to give you the context like what I always do. But you know people just get stuck on that specific context and it's not good. For example once I asked about 'how to give bad news' and I gave them an example of my friend's bf! I know I was guilty not to explain more about what I meant, but you know anyway it didn't help alot!
In this case I didn't say anything what I mean because I thought some people might say "it's not true at all"!

Maybe it's not true?

Great! But I didn't mean that!
It's not strange if men could get along with women better than women with women.But it seems that some women couldn't stand another woman at all. Lots of my freinds(female ones of course) say that they can't get along with thier female colleagues at all. And they treat each other like enemies.
I noticed that women are quite easygoing about what they hear from a man but if a woman tell them something, they always take it so serious and think she's trying to spoil them...

It's probably an evolutionary thing. Women are natural competitors. They compete for men to have their children. Men don't have the same problem because they're perfectly willing to share women - once they've impregnated one, she's free game to the larger population again.

(Note: Please don't take this with complete seriousness.)

:biggrin: I think men also compete for women, although many men I have met never have had even a slightest chance to be attended by the the ones they are trying to draw attention.
But they never give it up in despair, they look for other ways around to poke fun at it instead. Why ????? just that Man is always selfish in love....Take it seriously please...
:biggrin:

Am I on crack or something? What in the hell are you all talking about? I see "Woman vs. Woman", the exact same word vs itself.

Is that Canadian grammar, or Microsoft Grammar Check grammar? Abbreviations should be followed by a period, and vs. is an acceptable abbreviation (I've only seen v. used in court cases until recently; it's ambiguous because it can be an abbreviation for about 10 other things too, like verb). And I just confirmed this with Webster's.

I learnt that, like Smurf has shown, that abbreviations that end with the same letter as the word ends do not have a full stop, like Dr, Mr, St .

:confused: Maybe these guys are abbreviating using the first 's' in 'versus' in their abbreviation. :smile:

Nope, those are all supposed to have a period after them too; it signifies it is an abbreviation.
