Basically, if you are strict about grammar/lexicon/whatever (or aren't but feel like correcting somebody), post the allegedly incorrect post and your corrections here instead of disrupting the main thread.

You said to "post it here" without referring to what "it" was.

Good idea. This is so old, however, that I feel the need to boost it so all of us can see it without diging so far. Also, is there by chance a way to create a "Grammar Nazi" user group?

Is that going off of my usual usage of "porpoise"?
Edit: To go with the name change, I found the exact definition for those who are less linguistically inclined.
