I hope this thread isn't starting to offend anyone, that's certainly not the intention
I think, for people who are not obsessed with spelling and grammar, it's hard to understand where we're coming from. It's not like I'd look at a post with mistakes in it and laugh at or judge the poster, it's just more that I can see the mistakes and I just can't not notice them. It's like a fly in the room or something, you can't ignore it. I can still read a post with mistakes and completely respect the poster and all their views, I just sometimes have the urge to take to it with a red pen!
This thread is for people who, like me, have grammar obsession issues and need a place to complain about it so we can get it out of our system and be less distracted elsewhere That first one about he's/his has been driving me mad for a loooong time, I've said it now, so I can let it go

I have another one too, about full stops:
When you use a full stop or any other punctuation (like ,.: the punctuation goes next to the last word, and then you leave a space.
Mary has a dog. His name is Marty. = correct.
Mary has a dog, his name is Marty. = correct.
Mary has a dog . His name is Marty. = incorrect (extra space after 'dog').
Mary has a dog.His name is Marty. = incorrect (need a space before 'His').

Ahahaha - isn't it funny? I get emails from him like `Get of the computor' (he thinks I'm addicted to BH ..... don't know why ..... ) and I think to myself `Yeah, you are the one with the Honours degree in Philosophy and Politics and the degree of Dramatic Art'?????
ETA - I just saw your `February tip'. THANK YOU. With that you have described my biggest pet peeve in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
