I suppose City Limits has the right to entitle its article The Marshall Plan, because of the person's name. I just think that The Marshal Plan would have been a more appropriate title, because of the eviction angle.
Other people in the TenantNet Forum have rightfully posted messages which have been critical of people who don't do the slightest bit of research before they ask a question.
I'm critical of people who don't use the Optional URL Link and Link Title when referring to a single article. I post a link to an article using those features, and I also include the URL in the body of the message, so that people who read the TenantNet Forum's messages via e-mail will see the URL. Optional URL Link and Link Title don't work when messages are sent by e-mail.
Someone recently suggested that I start my own webpage. As I said, I have no interest in that. But if I started my own forum, I would remove any messages that did not use the Optional URL Link and Link Title, when they should have been used. Any message with incorrect spelling (including typos), improper punctuation, or bad grammar would also be removed. In fact, a few of my own messages would have to be removed because of typos. Delphi Forums allows posters to edit their messages after they're posted, so there is absolutely no reason for any errors there. And it would be nice to have a forum or message board that has its own spell-check feature.
: : Why can't people who post messages here learn how to use all the features in the TenantNet Forum, including Optional URL Link and Link Title?
: It's because some people don't read.
: : And why can't City Limits spell "marshal" correctly? It's "marshal" -- not "marshall."
: Oops -- if you read the article, you would discover the person's name is "Marshall" with two l's.
: Really, ever since Richard went on probation, you've picked up the gauntlet of being the misanthrope. Don't know which one is worse.
