Update

I missed a classic Worstall.

He in one post says:

It’s? Its? Do you still get marked down for grammar and punctuation these days?


So, someone wrote It's, rather than Its. This Worstall believes is worthy of a post. A reason to avoid a company. A commenter notes however in a post just two below that Worstall has written:

Or take it further and connect the delightful young heiress, that very same Paris Hilton, with the full phrase in all it's original glory

Oh dear.

He's a pedant who insists on using 'fora' as the plural of 'forum' - it's Latin d'you see?

Yuck!

Oh dear indeed. On the evidence of this post, you are in no position to poke fun at others' grammar, punctuation or use of English!

For starters, I suggest a refresher course in the effective application of the comma.

Indeed, which is why I don't do it, and why Worstall shouldn't either.

Is the matter with you?

Have you considered the possibility that you may have lost your damn mind?

I think it gets to the heart of the issue. I (as noted in the first post) like Tim's blog, and respect his views. But he sometimes attacks people quite severely for traits that he shows himself. This is a minor example of a wider trend.

Thanks for your comment, which is appreciated. May I ask in future though could all readers refrain from swearing please?
