    Just a couple days ago I accepted an invitation to LinkedIn, set up my profile, and joined a few groups, where I've been reading some blogs about environmental issues, engineering challenges, current events, urban renewal, etc. The people are very well-educated and articulate, and the ideas they discuss could make your head spin. I love listening in (so-to-speak) on their discussions. Yet quite often, when they respond to each other, they will begin by saying, "Your right on target, but …" And it is DRIVING ME RIGHT UP THE WALL!!!!!! PhDs aplenty, but not an English major among 'em. Sigh.

  3. oh dear… yes, I see it a lot too, it seems to have become pretty rife. sometimes it's hard to be a pedant 🙂

    (quickly googles "pedant") pedantLOL! I assure you, I am not a pedant, or at least I'm not an *obsolete* male schoolteacher ;-)I did work as a proofreader for a publishing house in my youth, though, and some errors just jump out at me and SCREAM, "fix me!"

  5. hahaha… I didn't know about that obsolete meaning :)me, I've always been one of those annoying people who notice everyone's mistakes, which is why I trained to do proofreading – I thought I might as well put this tendency to good use 🙂
