  •  Is that Coopers Credulity? (4+ / 0-)

    I notice you may have fallen prey to the same misuse of the word "credulity" that Anderson Cooper seems to have fallen prey to in recent weeks.

    It means a tendency to be too ready to believe that something is real or true. So it would be hard to defy all credulity, as you put it. Perhaps "Defying all credibility" or "Defying all credence" is what you meant.

    A small point, but I like to examine things like that before they get out of hand. Otherwise our funds will continue to be "dispersed" and our bombs "diffused". lol.

    Moderation in most things.

    •  Finally gave up on "it's" and its incorrectness (1+ / 0-)

      … when it's used as a possessive and not as a contraction for "it is." Seem to be seeing its misuse as possessive everywhere. Proofreading is important — it's too bad so many folks now expect spellcheck to serve as its substitute.

        One half a brain cell can determine if it's 'its' or 'it's'.

        Does it make sense if 'it's' or 'its' is "discontracted" to 'it is'? Fine, then it's good to go.

        But no one can stop it or fix it.

        And here at dKos we cannot correct the dumb mistakes or typos in our hasty comments. I can understand not allowing corrections that change the meaning of comments. But maybe the Kosware could be programmed to allow correcting "its" and  "it's"?
