    What was there not to loath?

      Put an “e” on that, and we shall agree!

        I stand corrected.

        • Maurice Miner

          Hah! I sometimes think that I will be accused as a “Grammar Nazi”, but we really need some mechanism of communication that specifically sets forth an opinion in writing that is completely correct, and represents an exact reflection of our opinions.

          Anything else is just window-dressing.

            We all make mistakes occasionally, especially when quickly writing out a comment on a blog. I usually proof read and make corrections, or edit later if I notice errors, and sometimes an error still sneaks through. I personally don’t mind being corrected on points of spelling and grammar if I make a mistake that goes unnoticed, unless the person is an asshole and the only counter he has to your argument is that you made a spelling mistake.

            Absolutely! Precision is paramount in our war with the Left – otherwise, we are held out as fools.
