    Oh, and by the way, you misspelled 'haberdashery'.

    •  I Can Be a Pedant... (none)
      ...and maybe it's because I'm a poor speller, but resorting to correcting spelling errors in the midst of losing an argument--which I know isn't what you're doing here--is, at Daily Kos, the last refuge of fools and scoundrels.

      [I think that's how you spell scoundrels...]

      •  Heh (none)
        I'd gladly write the text for a '20 common spelling and usage errors' pop-up window if I thought Kos would add the feature to the Post Comment screen.  People don't actively seek to misspell or misuse words, it just happens.

        And yes, attacking one's opponent on spelling or usage errors is inexcusable.  Fortunately, it's my observation that any such post usually contains at least one spelling or usage error.

        You did a great job as a front-pager, BTW.  Thanks for investing so much of your time to make this a great place to visit.
