So this has ALWAYS been a pet peeve of mine; since the beginning of my Sleuthing.

*NOTE: This is not as big of one as the waiter/waitress 'fiasco' was*


Take a look at Sleuth Admin's detective page, for example.

"Politics
Order o Socrates: Good(10)
Arcanum Brthrhd: Good(10)
Cosa Nostra: Poor(-3)
Eastern Triads: Good(10)
Circle of Light: Poor(-2)
Green Hand: Good(10) "

Notice that of is "o", not "of" in Order of Socrates
Notice that Brotherhood is shortened, and the word Dies is completely absent
"La" is missing in La Cosa Nostra
Isn't it "The" Green Hand, "The" Eastern Triads?


Now I know this was done because of margin widths, but can it not be fixed in any way? It's not only annoying, but also can be confusing as to what the factions are called. Perhaps they could even be shortened to just OS, LCN, DAB, GH, CoL, and ET? (Although that would be very confusing as well)



Just something that's always bothered me.

It really ticks me off when I go to a restaurant with someone and order what I want off the menu and my dinner companion then tries to persuade me that I should have ordered something else for the rest of the evening. ARGH!!! The only solace is to drink a LOT of wine and eat quickly.

I'm bumping this because:

My new biggest pet peeve is people who don't utilize a very simple tool called SPELL CHECK.

Firefox is great, because it comes with a handy dandy little spell check built right in. There are a lot of people on the internet who should make use of this.
