If there were fewer grammar Nazis, *my* mood would be better.

If you don't like it, then go away. Precision in speech is important for effective communication. Most folks here don't mind the occasional correction. I find it interesting that those who get annoyed with "grammar Nazis" are also those who, in general, seem to talk about "job-killing regulations" (without the hyphen...they're not smart enough to know there's a hyphen in there), etc.

Their attitudes about everything seem to be wrong. You're a case in point.


Give me a break. I write well. Nobody is perfect. I could go around correcting everyone's spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes, but it is extremely annoying and won't change anything.
