Fair warning. Once Yuri says he's done editing this. All this OT stuff is going bye bye.

Umm.. I'm all for promoting intelligent conversation and all, but I don't see what the big deal is if someone makes a post that has a typo or two (or the occasional mis-spelled word). Not everyone can type 100 wpm with 90% accuracy like Yuri.

Of course there are some posts that just scream to be defamed because of glaring inaccuracies, but I come here to discuss beer. I've made a lot of friends here and enjoy other conversations with the group as well, but I'll never feel badly about typing 'rediculous' as opposed to 'ridiculous', or using 'effect' when I should have used 'affect'.

Isn't the spelling supposed to be 'Sulfur' now?

You have a valid point, however, we all come here at least in-part to learn.
The infomation we choose to use or ignore is the same here as in the brewing arena. This thread makes it fun for some of us. I can see where it's not everyone's cup of tea.

For me...trying to mix proper grammar/spelling/syntax...with the discussion of beer, especially whilst drinking the same, is like posting safe sex guidlelines at an orgy.

What's funny is that you misspelled the word, "misspelled."

I'm not necessarily trying to be your English teacher, and I don't mind the occasional typo. I'm just trying to facilitate a bit of learning and good communication. I'll occasionally reference a dictionary, and I thought it might be nice to have a mini brew version here, that's all.

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).
__________________
That is called apostrophe, not a comma here's a trick, an apostrophe is on top, comma is on bottom. God I hope I spelled that right.
