    Hello Bansha - welcome to WordReference :)
    Perhaps we will be able to improve your grammar and convert you to a grammar-lover.

    I would be very surprised if you were able to find a reputable source supporting the second version of this sentence.

    I hope you will, because I'm a lost cause when it comes to grammar...


    It would be awesome if you guys had IRC channel or something like that so dolts like me can log in there anytime and fire away with questions :)
