Sadly I fear that the only people who will read this board are those to whom grammar is important. Those who offend with their grammatical solecisms will be noticeable primarily by their absence.
I love grammar. But a lot of what SPOGG talks about isn't grammar, it's peevology
Yep. I agree, z. While misspelling "grammar school" does seem to be egregious, misspellings aren't grammar errors.
That's really funny, because Microsoft is against open and correct standards. Recently there has been controversy about the Open Document format, so that MS Word, Open Office, and others could all store data in a generic format. Microsoft invented their own proprietary format and didn't want to accept a global standard.
It's as if the world wanted them to accept standard English grammar, and Microsoft came up with their own more difficult version that only Microsoft Word could run the grammar checker on and they insisted everyone in the government used it.

Yes, I saw an article on that recently. Such a shame. Microsoft's wannabe "standard" is called Office Open XML to confuse folks I suppose.
