Please advise me by giving me some advice.

It is an understandable verb/noun mix-up and I do not understand why it would drive you crazy.

Totally off topic statement on my part:
As long as you understand what someone is saying on a forum, which is a free form of communication that often imitates oral communication more than traditional literary communication, then why should you care? It has been porevn taht it is rleatievly esay to raed thorugh tpoys and most grammatical failures do not hinder communication. And let's be honest, we all post like we're drunk anyway. Some of us are more literary than others, that is our problem, not theirs.

Anyway, with the state of modern education, be happy people are actually writing online and not expecting people to view their YouTube videos and responses as a communication medium.

mea culpa
Reading through a thread I came across one of my posts where I'd written 'who's' when I meant 'whose'.

Great thread,

I don't speak English very well, so this thread is perfect for me.

I've noticed many instances in which the word 'vial' has been misused. This irks me. Slightly.

Unless, of course, the contents of the vial are indeed vile.

True, true. I wouldn't recommend drinking the contents of a White Labs vial. The anal consequences would indeed be vile.

How about oxygenation vs. oxidation?

Oxygenation = Introduction of O2 to an environment or solution.
Oxidation = Chemical reaction in which a molecule loses an electron.

Just because you oxygenated your beer does not mean that it will be oxidized.

Here is a misused phrase for your collection: "Tap Handle". Most folks use this when what they are referring to is a "Tap Marker". I will allow that the misuse is so common that even most manufactures/distributors web pages refer to "tap handles" so that they will show up in searches. Even Micromatic has "Tap Handle" nearly everywhere with one of the few exceptions being Beer Tap Handle Tap Marker Angler.

Here is another misused word. "Perlick" is often used alone when discussing Perlick forward sealing faucets even though Perlick also makes several models of rear sealing faucets. It would really be a shame if someone found a faucet at a shop that has "Perlick" stamped on the side and bought it only to find out that it is one of the other models.
