    "Nazi's" [sic] should not have an apostrophe.

    The entire concept of 'if you tell me I'm wrong, you're a Nazi' has always confuzzled me. :headscratch:

    Maybe it's just me. I don't care if you tell me I made a mistake, rather, I expect you to do so. I want to know what is correct and I have never had such an ego or the childish attitude that doing so is grounds for insult.

    Those that revel in their ignorance or feign ignorance to be thought of as hip and trendy and admired or just can't acknowledge a mistake ... ever ... just don't make sense to me.

    I once told a client, "If I were perfect, you couldn't affiord me."

    Well done. I've gotten emails at work that had those types of errors. Sometimes, they are so bad I need to decipher the intent of the sender.

    +1. I don't understand why anyone would not be a perfectionist when it comes to his own written expression. If all that people know you by is your writing, what does it tell them about you when you misspell words, use improper punctuation and don't care about it?

    So many seemingly intelligent people are convinced that the apostophe is the symbol that means "Look out! There is an 's' coming up!"

    I just don't understand it.
