I'm tempted to name this thread after our most serious offender.
Repent, or else...

Judah Kanowitz might not be the only one with a dedicated thread.

Nah, just a millenial.
Not indicative of anything IMO.

There's something about this thread title that drives me completely crazy.

Is it incorrect? Just awkward?

I believe it's too correct (I know that statement is incorrect) People are so removed from that style of speaking/writing that it sounds funny, when it used to be standard.

Which part?  I'd be more satisfied if the title didnot contain the 'Hall of Shame' phrase.
Why as yidden would we ever want to shame anyone?!  Ok, the guy misspelled or made a grammar error.  We teach the concept, make a comment if really necessary, but why shame him?  My .02.

:o   Then it should be correct.  If it feels awkward that is because people are lax in their grammar.

So the people in Wisconsin don't know how to spell where they live?

At least they gave a pretty clear methodology. Interesting how people search for a real spelling of a fake word.
