I'm pleased that the OP finds grammatical devices stimulating, moreover that these devices outshine the exotic content, although this seems dubious. Nevertheless, the OP has expressed this preference, albeit unusual, which one most of us haven't considered heretofore is undoubtedly a real one, thus we have to seek ways to please readers like the OP henceforth. Was that as good for you as it was for me?

Thank you 25. Might I add, 3, that its "grammar nazi," not grammar whore. What, do you have sex for proper sentence structure? Go down for proper use of a subjunctive?

64 is right. "A lot" is the direct object. A lot can be singular or plural, so you decide which verb to use based on the object of the preposition, which, in this case, is "gram-whores," which is plural, so it needs the plural verb, are.

Unless you are referring to a lot as in a large space like a car lot. Using it the same way you would use "a ton of bricks" so really either is correct as it' s open to interpretation.

Holy crap I don't think I've ever seen this many grammar nazis at once. Reading your damned comments made me feel like I just got an English lesson >_< comments are supposed to be funny, not educational. Go back to your classrooms.

Either the story was that bad, or you are truly are a nominee for the Grammar Nazi of the Year award. Either way, Op, good luck with whatever floats your boat. ;)

14- Don't ask me, just rereading my last comment, I obviously don't run that ceremony: "You are truly are a...." Horrible. :p Not to mention yours either: "Hey their", as compared to Hey there, insert comma? ;) *Teasing*

16, I think that all of their mistakes were on purpose. No one could have made that many mistakes accidentally. Their (there) weather (whether) can (could) to (too). (Along with the ones that you already pointed out) You missed the point of the comment... Re-read it with its flaws, and look at what they're asking... . Go ahead, I have time... . . . ...Not that much time... ~_~

Maybe if your trying to be a nominee for grammar nazi, you'll use the correct form of whether next time.

6 - Just because you may not be knowledgable on grammar, doesn't mean there aren't tons of other people out there who are.

Well considering how common conjunctive adverbs are, I imagine this was a very quick... uh, session for you.

Sounds like a very titillating book and I'd ask to borrow your copy, but I'm guessing that lots of the pages are stuck together. Mycological preggo porn, FTW, they have M2BILFs*, too! *Mushrooms-to-be . . .
