Editing predispositions[edit]

I may not be considered a frequent editor here, but I think it best to inform others of my grammatical solidarities since this place aims to emulate an encyclopedia even with all the bureaucratic elements and human foibles. Clearly user boxes lend themselves to such a use.

ANAL 4 This user advocates good grammar usage.
their / there / they're This user thinks that there are too many people who don’t know that they're worse than their own children at spelling!
your/ you’re This user thinks that if your grammar is incorrect, then you’re in need of help.
to
too
two
This user thinks that too many people have no idea how to use words that they should have learned in grade two.
than / then This user understands the difference between using "than" and "then."
You and Me This user thinks that if you believe it is incorrect to use "you and me" as the object of a sentence, a little talk needs to be had by you and me...
its This user understands the difference between its (of it) and it's (it is or it has).
Latin Plurals: "Data is are..." This user uses "data", "media", "memoranda", "criteria", and "agenda" as the plurals of "datum", "medium", "memorandum", "criterion", and "agendum".
whom This user insists upon using whom wherever it is called for, and fixes the errors of whomever he sees.
“,;:’ This user is a punctuation stickler.
infin¦
itive
This user chooses never to split infinitives.
; This user knows how to use a semicolon correctly.
A, B, and C This user prefers the serial comma.
“...”!
US vs. UK
This user uses logical quotation marks. Internal punctuation leads to factual errors. It's not a style issue!
Subj This user prefers that the subjunctive mood be used. Were this user you, he would use it.
by The passive voice may be used by this user.
... in. Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which this user will not put.
person,
humanity
This editor writes carefully to avoid gender neutrality issues completely.
UK This user uses British English.
OED This user uses Oxford spelling.
US This user uses American English.
