What's wrong with that sentence? I have a family that is "technically my god-family" too and that's exactly how I would write it, for all intents and purposes, they're family. Tell me how that description prompts an "oof?"

Their instead of they're + intensive purposes instead of intents and purposes

Dude, I'm pretty sure he was joking, as evidenced by the fact that he corrected both errors in his reply. Sly move, actually, but apparently lost on most people.

I think it was the use of "all intensive purposes" instead of "all intents and purposes" that prompted the oof.

Yeah. I know. See b_b's comment, he was able to parse my humor. Granted, this is no knock on you, my humor is humorless.
