This is a question Fears and Phobias

I'll level with you. I'm really freaked out by loose buttons. I'm fine while they're doing their job, but once they're free the evil bastards are a major threat to my life. Tell us what spooks you, and how you cope. Also: church bells, doner kebab salads, death.

I'm scared of posting anything on QOTW
Because if it's remotely wrong or irregular or unacceptable I'll be pilloried and vilified.

Some people might take it further and attempt to contact my employer. Some people might assume that I constitute a personal threat and some people might attempt a lesser assumption of authority.

Who knows? If you think you do - do it for the post count.

I hate people who use a dash instead of a semicolon - it's very lazy.

I would suggest that contextually it is more appropriate.
I am not presenting an alternative.

Go on then: explain to me why, in your view, there should be a semicolon rather than a comma between the two clauses above.

(, Sat 13 Sep 2014, 12:15, closed)
Because it's replacing ", then" where "then" is acting as a conjunction.
Actually, I've changed my mind. But you're still a Deacon

I've never heard that rule and I wouldn't give it the time of day from a glow-in-the-dark Casio watch.

I used to live less than a mile away from where Joey Deacon lived. It's not contagious though.

a semicolon to replace a conjunction is pretty basic stuff

The first clause is not an independent clause, though.
It's dependent on the second clause for the resolution of the conditional.

when the best that his vocabulary can produce is "do do".
