Thread of grammatical shame

Hi, everyone.

I like to think I have good grammar, but it's not perfect.

If anyone ever sees a spelling error/grammatical error/punctuational error/inaccuracy in any of my pages/posts, please report on this thread exactly what I did wrong. And, if I was correcting someone else when I made the mistake, feel free to rub it in. :)

Your user page has omitted commas in the sentence: "If anyone has codesize issues[,] please post your code on the wiki[,] and I will try to help." Also, you should generally avoid ending sentences with a preposition.

Well deserved. :)

Heh, just don't look at my posts or pages. You'll find mountains of problems. It seems that the better my programming skills get, the worse my English skills become. I leave out words, misspell common words (by accident), and make all kinds of grammatical mistakes.

Usually this could be fixed by reading before I post, but I often forget to do so.
