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.

Man down!

I got banned from the Guardian's 'Comment is Free' blog-o-site today, for pulling up the subeditor on his grammar.

I got kicked off the BBC's World Cup blog for a similar feat. Bastards.

The Guardian is renowned for its bad grammar as well as its typos, if that is any consolation.

Incidentally, as this is a grammar blog, why are your commenters not captialising proper names (their own or others' ? ) ;-)

Oops, I have just seen that Blogger downgrades one's name to lower case initial. But Robbie refers to you as "thom" and "geordie"?

Maxine, it's shocking I know, it should be Thom and Geordie. See the "do as I say, not as I do" disclaimer on the front page. I figure there's a difference between an internet posting and a 3 foot high banner saying "1000's of prices cut" outside Morrisons on the Isle of Wight.

They shouldn't have banned you, they should have offered you a job. Cnuts.*
