    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...

    Punctuation Is Good

    It's more grammar than spelling, but I hate getting messages that have no punctuation.  I have a boss that loves to send me emails about projects he wants done that make absolutely no sense sometimes.  Drives me nuts.  Would it really be that much trouble to put a...
