A response and a further comment.On it's versus its: if I post from the iPhone, the default is it's regardless of context. If I catch it, I can override, but otherwise up it goes, right or wrong. Then I have to backtrace and edit once I see it as posted. Sometimes this even involves logging back in, if I have exited quickly.So it bothers me, but sometimes I let it go. Only a few of the more literate senior members here would notice anyway and hopefully they forgive me. Now for a problem even more worthy of admin's attention. I have held my tongue for a long time because he is surely quite busy policing my images and ppauper's links and titles and so forth, but this situation where cut and pasted text appears with question marks for dashes and improper apostrophes is rather disturbing. Generally speaking, I do go back in to the pilfered text and make corrections, but this is time-consuming and I could be posting risqué pictures or writing freshly-plagiarized poems instead.Which would you rather see - an error-free article ripped from the Wall Street Journal or a stacked, nubile young lady from the former Soviet Union clad only in duct tape?Being pretty OC about editing, I usually sacrifice your visual pleasure for grammatical correctness. However, sometimes I get cranky and am not in the mood to fix machine errors.Well, as with a number of things lately, I just had to get that off my chest. Maybe I can go back to sleep now, except that the birds are making a tremendous racket outside. Birds' prerogative. Note the use of the *plural* possessive case.TS 4:44 am
