Apologies if this has been mentioned before.The 'Join Mumsnet for free' banner which is on screen when you aren't logged in. I know it's common parlance, but it grates. Surely it's 'Join Mumsnet free' or 'Join Mumsnet for nothing'.Just needed to get that off my chest
I disagree. I think that your alternatives are either difficult to parse or potentially ambiguous and I think clarity trumps pedantry.
"For free" avoids certain ambiguities because "free" also means "at large", "liberated", etc. as well as "without cost".
