    PSA: Grammar nazis

    Unless the plaintiff has proven superlative skill in using the English language, I hereby declare it illegal to make a post bewailing someone else's tawdry exploitation of the same.

    Thanks,

    tawdry?
    Man...I thought that was a description of wenches used by pirates or actually describing the women that pirates liked. But heh...I'm not bewailing or anything like that.

    Poor grammar does bug me on occasion, but I know that my own grammar isn't perfect, so I tend to shy away from correcting others. I just know that if I were to do so, I'd make a huge grammatical faux pas in the process.

    When people use bad grammar, they're English teacher's cry.

    Advice and Advise are not the same word.

    The majority of BF posters are unaware of this fact.

    It's not appropriate to use an apostrophe for a plural noun.
