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.

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.

ooh, can I join in? :)

People who say 'yourself' when they mean 'you'.

Leaky headphones churning out irritating distorted noises on public transport.

The fact that train announcements in the UK talk about arriving 'into' a station rather than 'at' a station.

Cafes and restaurants which play music better suited to nightclubs.

People who talk in the cinema.

(Feel better now!)

I'm still grumbling that townies who ask for a favor get a bit grumpy when you ask for their help.

I get it, but I don't have to like it. ;)
