Your right it does,but you have to add machine after it to make it proper,

Notice what it would say,"installing new drive through ATM"

Compared to "installing new drive throught ATM machines"

See the difference?

No, by adding machine to the phrase you are saying automatic teller machine machine. Does that make sense? would you say OJ juice, or PI investigator? No? Then why ATM machine?

It's all about grammar, You can't say OJ juice because it's not proper,but when refering to ATM you have to add machine after it to make it proper.

Saying "installing a new drive through ATM" is perfectly acceptable. The M in ATM replaces the need for the word machine. That is why acronyms are used, to shorten and condense otherwise long phrases or terms. You could say an AT machine, but no one would know what your talking about. however whenever I hear someone say ATM machine it just drives me crazy. Not sure why because usually I could care less about proper grammar.

You just completely are saying " **** the english language"?
User avatar #14 to #13 - derik (11/14/2011) [-]
English language is **** anyways lol. But really ATM machine just sounds stupid... Why would you say machine when its already implied by the M? Your doing extra work for no reason. Its like saying X=2, X=3-1. Would you ever put that down on a math test just to make sure your teacher really understood your point?

What are you talking about?
This has nothing to do with math?
This is grammar?
Two different things?
There are rules in both, so no I wouldn't really care for it,because it's not needed but the machine after ATM is.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH NO ITS NOT!!!!!!! I swear to you its not needed. I am going to ask my English professor this. Not sure ill get proof, but if im wrong I will come back to this and apologize. OH, and sorry for calling you dumb lol Im sure you don't really care that much but it was uncalled for.

Slow to catch on aren't you?...

No, simply offering a comprehensible compromise for your arguments.
User avatar #7 to #6 - flaminggodzilla [OP](11/14/2011) [-]
That's not proper english,how is that helping?
User avatar #8 to #7 - baldraun (11/14/2011) [-]
If we're going to take the side of the argument that adheres to strict grammatical and mechanical rules rather than what could be interpreted by the generally stupid public, then derik's point is more valid than yours. My solution wasn't meant to be orthodox, nor was it even meant to be a solution - it was primarily meant to be a source of humour, which has apparently evaded you.

Thanks bald, its not his fault though, he just cant help it...
User avatar #10 to #8 - flaminggodzilla [OP](11/14/2011) [-]
How is his point more valid?
You explained nothing using so many "big" words?
You fail that bad,I applaud you for your use of your intelligence so very well,but yet you accomplished nothing in that, let's say "paragraph".
