As long as you're younger than the voice actors, you shouldn't really worry too much...

I love my pics, but may I remind you not to use these pics too much!

I talked with Teral about it (knowing he's not a mod), and we agreed that I won't use them anymore cos it is wrong to tell the mods how they should do their job. They do a great job on Peel and have many work closing dumb threads or deleting spam.

The pics are going to stay online, but please don't use them in every doomed thread!    <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Edit, after PCC Fred posted: And please read what this wise man has to say! All what he says is true!

And I'm getting ashamed of myself that I started this!

Welcome to PEEL, please read the PEELers' FAQ.

In addition, will all you n00bs stop posting that "Close This Thread!" pic!  Having a fancy animation doesn't make your posts any less spammy.

In any case, the word is "ain't", an improper colloquial form of the contraction "aren't".  You shouldn't use "ain't", because it ain't good English.

P.S.  OK, so my English teachers didn't laugh at that joke either.

ain't

Nonstandard
1. Contraction of am not.
2. Used also as a contraction for are not, is not,    has not, and have not.

Usage Note: Ain't has a long history of controversy. It first appeared in 1778, evolving from an earlier an't, which arose almost a century earlier as a contraction of are not and am not. In fact, ain't arose at the tail end of an era that saw the introduction of a number of our most common contractions, including don't and won't. But while don't and won't eventually became accepted at all levels of speech and writing, ain't was to receive a barrage of criticism in the 19th century for having no set sequence of words from which it can be contracted and for being a ?vulgarism,? that is, a term used by the lower classes, although an't at least had been originally used by the upper classes as well. At the same time ain't's uses were multiplying to include has not, have not, and is not, by influence of forms like ha'n't and i'n't. It may be that these extended uses helped fuel the negative reaction. Whatever the case, criticism of ain't by usage commentators and teachers has not subsided, and the use of ain't is often regarded as a sign of ignorance. ·But despite all the attempts to ban it, ain't continues to enjoy extensive use in speech. Even educated and upper-class speakers see no substitute in folksy expressions such as Say it ain't so and You ain't seen nothin' yet. ·The stigmatization of ain't leaves us with no happy alternative for use in first-person questions. The widely used aren't I? though illogical, was found acceptable for use in speech by a majority of the Usage Panel in an earlier survey, but in writing there is no acceptable substitute for the stilted am I not?

It may not be proper, but it has been accepted as a word. This is all from dictionary.com
