There is a n in damn.

You can turn off updates in Options > Advanced - Update by un-checking all three items.

Hello the-edmeister

Before you comment on other people's use of the English language, you should check your own, because you are missing an 'n' as well.

You shouldn't say, "There is a 'n' in damn."

You should say, "There is an 'n' in damn."

I can't give you a fancy explanation of how the rule works, but I know I'm correct. A rough and ready guide is to say it out loud. If it sounds wrong, it usually is.

You can't say, "There is an 'b' in block."

You should say, "There is a 'b' in block"

Say the two lines immediately above, out loud, and it's quite obvious which line is correct.
