yeah, i got busted in worm nerd re a french term "nom de plume". i pluralized "nom de plumes" instead of "noms de plume". sort of like "attorneys general" instead of "attorney generals". *sigh*

Not busted; just gently corrected.
I'm an editor. It's in my blood. Don't take it personally.
(I really liked the entry.)

That's cool! I'm just trying to be consistent with the rest of my gender... sensitive and dramatic.
I can very much appreciate your editorial drive... I have been trying for months to get someone to take a position composing user manuals (we're talking remedial stuff here). I've even offered financial incentives to my staff for someone with the aptitude. No takers. Back to my statement the other day: you should make demands! :)
