  1. Not to mention that that’s not a real apostrophe anyway. (A real one would look like the commas, only higher.) And not to mention that there are two spaces between sentences in two places and one space between sentences in another. (If you’re going to be wrong, at least be consistent.)

  2. “A man running for governor of WV who misuses apostrophes,” is clearly correct, since it is the man who does it and not the state that does it.

    The problem with being a Grammar Nazi amongst GNs is it is nearly impossible to comment without getting busted.

  3. ‘How to not get the vote’ – apostrophes aside, splitting the infinitive is also a sure way to prove your ignorance of grammar.

  4. The misuse of it’s for its is the one error I can understand because it is illogical. Its indicates possession to it, yet does not get an ‘s.
