I encourage you to send comments about any subject in my blog or about any English usage topic that strikes your fancy. I read all of them but only publish those that I feel are safe. Some comments I receive appear to be suspicious and I reject those. My blog has been hacked in the past and I am trying to avoid that happening again. Some comments are only ads and I steadfastly reject them as irrelevant to the correct use of the English language. Actually, the only ads that I will accept are accompanied by a cheque for $50.00.
This is not a political blog, nor is it a forum for some disgruntled I-have-a-cause type. The cause of this blog is correct English usage ONLY, so send your ads and your rants elsewhere; I will deal only with the use and abuse of the English language.
