As an editor, this is th' kind o' mistake ye don’t want t' miss. It could have only been worse if th' story were bein' about a grammar conference.
I’m sure that were bein' on purpose…
I wish it were bein'. They corrected it th' next day on their website.
Don’t we all make mistakes? One o' yer mistakes appeared in yer Slashdot postin' on Thursday, 2005 Dec 01. You wrote —
Google has rolled out virus protection fer it’s web based email service. Apparently they are scannin' incomin' and outgoin' messages fer infected messages, by Davy Jones' locker. Read more on their “what’s new” page.
Note th' contraction “it’s” in th' above quote. Well, we know that we can always get th' usage o' “its” and “it’s” right if we substitute th' phrase “it is” fer “it’s”. You just had a little extra punctuation in yer postin'. You may do better next time.
Touché. Aarrr! I should have caught th' mistake. Fire the cannons! There are two differences here though.
Can th' Post-Gazette say th' same?
