I'm surprised that Campbell hasn't been by and posted the old "bad punctuation" chestnut

King Charles the First walked and talked half an hour after his head was cut off.

That isn't a bad punctuation chestnut but a bad vocabulary chestnut: it shou‍ld read half an hour later. And it is nothing to lose your head about. I had actually forgotten about it, since it is that long sinc eI saw it. I shall probably forgive you for reminding me of it eventually

Campbell. if you are talking about my punctuation, I thought you knew me better than that
ignoring punctuation and capitalization is my trademark. I only care about spelling

No, it was Paul C's example I was talking about. I care about spellling too; only sometimes I don't notise my misteaks until it is tooo late.
