As an editor, this is the kind of mistake you don’t want to miss. It could have only been worse if the story was about a grammar conference.

Don’t we all make mistakes? One of your mistakes appeared in your Slashdot posting on Thursday, 2005 Dec 01. You wrote —

Note the contraction “it’s” in the above quote. Well, we know that we can always get the usage of “its” and “it’s” right if we substitute the phrase “it is” for “it’s”. You just had a little extra punctuation in your posting. You may do better next time.
