My English usage[edit]


  1. I am not a hyper-correct person. Life is already hard. Don't make it harder!
  2. I prefer rule simplicity to complication. Why complicate matters?
  3. Strict rules are stupid. What does it hurt to simplify things?
  4. Be flexible. Let your writing style go, let your own personality go.
  5. Facilitate communications, not facilitate rules and stubbornness.


  1. I prefer hyphen: 2-words, then 2 words, then 2words. Hyphen can visibly show the linking between 2 words and avoid possible confusion in some situations.
  2. I like numerical over text numbers: 2, not two. Don't you think it is easier to read numbers, especially when it grows large?
  3. Singular they is not good because it is still confusing. Do you mean singular or plural they? Why not simply use "it" - a perfect candidate of a simple, gender-neutral, and singular pronoun?
  4. Does it hurt to write childs & wifes, comparision or curiousity, breaked or more happy?
