I made a grammar mistake, and you have a penchant for making new threads to highlight the grammar mistakes of others (insert your standard vacillation about how you are not prescriptivist here) to try to get people who ignore you to talk to you. <shrug>
No, you did not make a grammar mistake, Robert. You have made mistakes about what grammar is, but that's another issue.
And get off this ludicrous "you have a penchant for making new threads to highlight the grammar mistakes of others" bullshit because I've never done that.
You're not dumb so I can't understand how you continue to miss it, even after I showed you, clearly, how mistaken you were, in another thread, when we discussed this same issue.
There was nothing prescriptive in my initial posting in this thread. Point out, clearly, where you think
I was being prescriptive.
