Meh... I'm going to keep using "prolly"...

On the pronunciation front, The Good Kaiser did correct me on one thing "vorlauf" = "wor-lauf".

Sause, can you educate everyone on the proper use of commas?

Here's a trick on the its/it's: if you can replace is with "his", use "its".

How about people who use the word "alot" when they mean "a lot".

Finally, never end a sentence in a preposition (at, for, on, etc).

Yeah I'd DEFINITELY agree with that one. Although not beer related, it is probably the most commonly misspelled word on any forum...

Yuri, you are my hero. Thank you, the spelling and grammar errors around here are getting rediculous...uh...hehe...ridiculous. That's another one. RIdiculous, not REdiculous. Just think, "ridicule", not "redicule".

Another thing that might help is if more people used Firefox v2 for their browser. It's got spelling error check built into posting text boxes like this one; spelling errors are underlined in red just like in MS Word, etc., and when you right click on it, it gives you a list of possible fixes. Not sure if IE does this because I never use it, but I know Firefox v2 does.
