I see here question about duplicates that it is OK to post here when one's question is falsely marked duplicate.
This is the case with my question “I was late, and so I got fired.” Can we use two conjunctions in a row?. The question linked as duplicate is regarding a specific aspect of the usage of "and so".
That other question is, word for word, If "and so" connects predicates such that the second is the result of the first, do we need to repeat the same words in the second? My question is whether it is actually incorrect to use "and so". I am still convinced that it is ultimately incorrect, while the other question is entirely based on the assumption that it is correct.
Whether it is proper English or not, no aspect of my question is even hinted at in the other.
I've edited my question to refute the duplicate claim, but I see it is 1 vote short of being deleted. Is there more I can do than posting about it here?
