Shouldn't this be in pedants corner? [biscuit}

No you would need to deal with the prolific commas as well then, smiley corner would go to pot. I like it that way, all the punctuation and everything.

Seconded

Shouldn't there also be some quotation marks? As in: For an "I have nothing to say on this matter" face

And yes, there are too many commas.

I'm NOT too pedantic. I'm NOT!! <<stamps foot>>

It is still hurting my eyes wail I might have to log off and shudder TAKE A BREAK!

<enters thread nervously, with Fowler's English Usage as trusty shield>

Um, yes, you are right on the 'an' front.

And quote marks would be nice.

Unfortunately, this is something only BigTech can fix - for some reason, he won't let us play with all the toys in the Shed hmm

We'll hit him over the head with a dictionary ask him to look at it tomorrow.

It is Still Wrong biscuit

We know. Sorry. (Think maybe BigTech was concentrating so hard on the no-eyes look, he took his eye off the biscuit ball.)

We'll get it fixed as soon as poss next week.
