    Just Stop It Already!

    When I see an article that has terrible spelling, I immediately lose interest. I'm not talking about when someone screws up whether and weather, or shoo and shoe, (though i do have a thing about they're, their, and there...). I'm talking about when it's so bad it's almost...

    No Language Snob, Me

    As someone who uses the English language as a tool of work, I find it really hard to make myself read stories with bad spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm not a language snob, though. I certainly don't mind using txt and blog abbreviations in private communications, as these...
