my grammar could hit the target from that distance

The revolution has begun. No longer will we put up with dodgy speeling, misplaced apostrophes' or improper; punctuation? P.S. pointing out bad grammar in postings is banned. To justify this I'm applying a form of grammatical 'absolute privilege', as the public interest in publishing mistakes far outweighs the cost to the public of making further mistakes. Call me a hypocrite if you will, but it works in Westminster.

Rats indeed

The invite email Robbie sent me:

I urge you to join me in the fight against badly written signs. I can't
promise you freedom, I can't promise you social status, but I can
promise you correctly uses apostrophes. Fight the machine brothers.


(Sorry Robbie.)

My bad. But I kind of knew this would happen. Hence I'm initiating a new rule, banning this kind of thing. See the amended main page for full details.

In other words, do as I say not as I do. And besides, that mistake was a typo, which I don't consider as bad as reckless apostrophe abuse.

Who are the machine brothers and why do you want to fight them?

Has no-one read the disclaimer? Sorry Thom, it should be "Fight the machine, brothers". But then, shouldn't your name be spelt "Tom"? Arf arf.
