    Grammar nazis go too far!

    You think we got a problem with grammar nazis? These guys went around defacing government signs. Personally I'm glad they are bringing attention to this epidemic of poor grammar on government signs that are likely to be read by millions of people.

    Between the missing capitalization in the thread title, the apostrophe in the first reply, and whatever errors I make in this post, I hereby decree that this is the worst thread ever!

    Why would you call a spade a shovel?
