    This probably isn’t a good time for me to teach you about the difference between “who” and “whom,” is it?

      It’s always time to fix my typos and errors.

      It’s better to tell an author that he or she has typos and serious grammar errors privately. That whole praise publicly, criticize privately thing. Unless you run one of the most popular and profitable blogs online.

        Praise publicly, criticize privately? Since WHEN on THIS blog?
        Oh the qualifier… this isn’t a popular and profitable blog.
        Sure, what’s good for the goose…

          Fine. Please feel free to fill my comments with corrections to my spelling and grammar. That’s the type of conversation I want to have on my blog.

    You gotta take what you dish out, my friend.

    If it helps, I do it only out of love. And, you know. Spasmodic, reflexive judgment.
