I hate that this thing is red.

Hi. That "some reason" was obviously someone with a desire to avoid the dreaded split infinitive. How silly these "rules" are when applied indiscriminately, without regard for euphony. Thanks for picking up on it. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 07:56, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Of course. I just like to disdain the "rules" (scare quotes have never been more appropriate) by refusing to acknowledge them at all. It's just a simple fact that the sentence as it was written would not be uttered by a native English speaker. I was worried an overzealous copy editor would angrily revert the edit; I'm glad to have been proven wrong. RoflCopter404 (talk) 09:32, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
