I think you'll find it's actually anti-pedant

snurk @ SY

I don't think its wrong to go for 'antipedant' (though I would use the hyphen).

WanderingTrolley · 15/01/2008 11:39

I apologise unreservedly.

Please use your hyphen stickers on my post.

I will use my full stop stickers on yours.

The pedant army simply needs to round up all the packs and use them for good, not evil.

Can you actually buy those? My DH & MIL would love them!

It would be marvellous, wouldn't it?

I could be really horrid to the people on my team then, who are employed at proof-readers, but who don't have a basic command of grammar or punctuation.

Someone let the heinous "chef's wanted" go through the other day at work. Luckily my beady eagle eye spotted it.

SY - are they also employed as proof-readers? PMSL at this thread.

How much are we all prepared to bet that the misspelling of "aggravate" was actually a mistake...????

Or am I now being completely dim and just soo behind? (do keep up JHH)

MissSpellt · 16/01/2008 21:26

LOL - hadn't noticed that, Jane!
