"throwing rocks in glass houses"

I'm in a misanthropic mood today.


My husband calls me 'grammar girl' because I cannot resist correcting or commenting on every little grammar problem I see.
But the good news is that when he needs to know what's grammatically correct for writing a document... who does he call? Grammar girl, of course!


AccidentallyOnPurpose, I applaud you for noticing these errors and bringing it to the attention of the proper authorities.


And watch Majic. He's a real stickler for overused commas...


AND I agree with the mistake that wecomeinpeace pointed out. Grammatically, the original was correct so a correction wasn't necessary and the correction you provided was actually incorrect.

But nobody really cares, do they...

All of those errors were created to see WHO ACTUALLY READS the Terms & Conditions.

Those of you that found errors have passed this test, but since you disclosed information...you failed an even bigger secret test.

I am highly disappointed in all of you.

We are discussing your punishment now and will inform you when a decision is reached.

lol. Wouldn't it be funny to actually see a page here on ATS that 'tested' people in this (or ¿that?) way? Some random member just gets 100, 000 points because he pointed something out. Hehe . . . . . . . . . (for wupy)

btw AccidentallyOnPurpose, good job. I noticed them there errors when I first came to this site 'bout (see the "'"!) 10 months ago. Didn't even know my own username back then, let alone how to post a thread!

Reading through this thread, (Focus... Grammar! FOCUS!) this post from wupy had me in splits.

The irony.

Actually removing the problems can help a lot. I've had issues with staff and some of the rules before, where they made no sense. For the sake of clarity the less problems the better.
