"Big Momma is renouned for being precise."

Michael, do yourself a favor. Although I'm certain you meant "renowned", your creative spelling, whether the result of mischief or inattention, tends to diminish the authority with which you critique the writings of others.


It’s all sheila’s fault. I talked about Big Momma’s comma placement and she said, “You want her to be more accommadating?” and since I didn’t want to be bested by someone who likes vile puns as much as I do, I had – repeat, had-- to say ‘renouned’ since it was a better choice than ‘What you said reverberated with me’.

However, aj, you do make a good point and I thank you for the preposition.
