    ALOT ... If you can’t remember the rule, just remind yourself that just as you
    wouldn’t write “alittle” you shouldn’t write “alot.”.

    Affect

    1. af•fect (transitive verb) [Middle English, from affectus, past participle of afficere]
    to produce an effect upon, as a: to produce a material influence upon or alteration in <paralysis affected his limbs> b: to act upon (as a person or a person's mind or feelings) so as to bring about a response; influence

    Effect

    1. ef•fect (noun) [Middle English, from Middle French & Latin; Middle French, from Latin effectus, from efficere to bring about, from ex- out (of) + facere to make, do]
    1a: purport; intent <the effect of their statement was to incite anger> b: basic meaning; essence <her argument had the effect of a plea for justice>
    2: something that inevitably follows an antecedent (as a cause or agent) <environmental devastation is one effect of unchecked industrial expansion>
    3: an outward sign; appearance <the makeup created the effect of old age on their faces>
    4: accomplishment; fulfillment <the effect of years of hard work>
    5: power to bring about a result; influence <the content itself of television is therefore less important than its effect>
    6 plural: movable property; goods <personal effects>
    7a: a distinctive impression <the color gives the effect of being warm> b: the creation of a desired impression <her tears were purely for effect> c (1): something designed to produce a distinctive or desired impression, usually used in plural (2) plural: special effects
    8: the quality or state of being operative; operation <the law goes into effect next week>

    in effect: in substance; virtually <the committee agreed to what was in effect a reduction in the hourly wage>
    to the effect: with the meaning <issued a statement to the effect that he would resign>

    Relax, take a deep breath, there are more important things in the world than the proper use of affect and effect.

    If you're going to be pedantic, do it properly. Most of those examples would be more correctly termed spelling mistakes. Both "learned" and "learnt" appears in dictionaries. And learn to capitalise correctly.

    No, sorry I missed it. But I couldn't get a cup of coffee at Starbucks in Sierra Madre today because of all the cyclists. They had to start two lines and they couldn't close the door. People were taking tables at the place next door, even though they weren't buying anything there. I did see one woman go screaming down Orange Grove Avenue with so much determination that I think if she hit a car the car would have been wrecked.

    "Litespeed" is a proper name, in this case the name of a particular bicycle, and is proper English. Light speed refers to the speed of light, and it is not a proper name.

    Jeez I thought I was the biggest spelling/grammar nazi in here!! Trayer I think you may have your sarcasm detector turned off...I am sure Ziggurat knows the difference between light speed and Litespeed and was just yankin' your chain.

    Sorry you couldn't buy your cup of coffee. Try to get there before 9am before we get there. As usual, we hogged most of their tables, including Coldstone's next door for a good couple of hours.... boy, I hate that. We noticed few local residents getting ticked off for not being able to even buy coffee. Sierra Madre is a very small tightly knit community and the police do listen and take action to every complaint. I can already see their PD enforcing their loitering ordinance against us like they did last week in front of the liquor and party stores with dozens of bikes and cyclists blocking their entrances, just across the street from Starbucks. They already have their hands full trying to enforce over 100 cyclists to observe their 2 stop signs every Sat morning. I always put my foot down especially at these stop signs.
