  1. When I entered this comments section, I clicked on Bill’s Library link. Here’s the response I received from Blogger:

    Profile Not Available

    The Blogger Profile you requested cannot be displayed. Many Blogger users have not yet elected to publicly share their Profile.

    If you’re a Blogger user, we encourage you to enable access to your Profile.

    I know it’s not apostrophe abuse, but it is bad grammar and I wanted to point it out somewhere.

    It should read “… not yet elected to publicly share their profiles.” (plural)

    And, why is Profile capitalized anyway?

    Ahhhh, now I feel better.
