I love it when the grammar Nazis show up. LOL! Be sure to include a link for that particular grammar rule you are correcting us on. It’s one thing to show us but another to explain it in complete detail.

Why, I'd be happy to provide you with that particular grammar rule! Feel free to skip the dry stuff at the top and skip down to the quick and dirty tip. Once I learned that tip, I never had to think through that grammar rule again.

Allow me to address one more error; my initial correction was directed at Mark Whittington, the author of the piece. (I believe a journalist should know the tools of his craft.) Where you got the idea that I was correcting the grammar of people on this thread is a mystery to me.

Thanks for the tip. That finally answers my question on when to use “who”/”whom” correctly.

I thought you were correcting a FReeper, not Whittington.

Again, feel free to give us a good grammar correction when needed. The website link you provided has some great info on it.
