    You nailed it. That said, capitalize the first word in a sentence…and, elipses only have three dots, not one two three four five six seven with a random space after 'em…come on! ~ Waylon

    i can't help the smarty pants in me.

    elipses…..have as many dots as you need to get your point across :) or to emphasize a particularly long pause….. :)

    creativity can be utilized in writing to. sometimes capitilization is a choice. as are sentence fragments. You know what cured me of being too worried about spelling and grammar etc? having a brilliant, yet dyslexic son. You find that misplaced and misspelled words don't always mean laziness, lack of intelligence or any other thought process that often goes through our heads. As a reformed grammar nazi I understand the urge, but the point is to communicate and sometimes that takes a different form than what we "expect".
    (for the record if I am going to put something on a poster I would probably have it "proofed" for such errors as seen above) But in the end maybe its about letting go — even here…:) Last time I checked we are human and get to be imperfect and make mistakes? Just sayin

    It drives me nuts when people don't know the difference between your and you're! Oy.

    "Your" title of the article gave it away. <:-) Way too easy…

    I saw the "your" / "you're" right away, and yes the title gave it away but "it's" embarrassing, as well. 😉

    Or how about inappropriate apostrophe usage! and "it's" versus "its."
