It's grown this long 'cause you've made three posts in it!
The thread could've ended with stainless steel rat's post titled "one addendum", so who's fault is it that the thread has gone this far? How can you continue to whine about how petty this thread is, yet continue to respond to it?
I've noticed that at no time have you denied that Don is guilty of unnecessarily correcting the typos, spelling and grammar of others. You seem to want to focus on whether this thread is petty, damages bj21, or has gone on too long. If you want the discusssion to end, stop replying. Problem solved. Or better yet, if you don't want to read it, don't click on it.
You didn't see me bitching about the idiotic OPP thread in which you told us for the gazillionth time how s*itty they treat you over at BJF. Do you assume that just because no one says they wish you'd shut the f*ck up about it that no one is really thinking that? Get a grip.
Here's a quick test you can take to determine whether my message to Don has any merit. You'll need a sharpened #2 pencil. Ready? Let's begin.
True or False
Don Schlesinger corrects more typos and grammar errors than anyone I've ever encountered on the Net.

If you believe the answer to either question is False, please provide evidence to support your answer(s).
