After just now reading an article on another site, I just

have to make a statement. Bias is a noun. It is to be used accordingly as in, " The experts have a bias against Clemson". It is not to be used as such," The experts have bias against", or ,"The experts are bias against". The later could state," The experts are biased against or towards Clemson".


And while I am at it, verse refers to poetry, not athletic constests.

Good day!

How a word is used in a sentence determines its part of speech.


Not in this case. You either have a bias, or you are biased.***

Only a biased reporter would say things like that.


You are exactly right. However, 9 out of ten would not state

it that way. They would write or say," The experts are bias against us ". And they would be incorrect.

You are correct. I made A’s in english.

No apostrophe on the A

Officially it would be "I made As in English." However, maybe there is a special rule to account for making the word plural when it becomes another word "as." :)

For example, two Boeing 757s crashed. Not 757's.

I am unable to understand

the bias you have against the use of it, and your use of quotation marks is horrid. I suggest Strunk and White or something like that to learn about quotation mark placement and usage before you try edifying the public again.
