Please stop confusing the words "formally" and "formerly". They have different meanings.

FORMALLY: Officially. Properly. As put down on important pieces of paper, usually by a business or government.

FORMERLY: Previously. Beforehand. Once. Not anymore.

Current Mood: cheerfulfestive
Current Music: XTC - Then She Appeared
