1. The idea behind the Red Marker Blogathon is not to make fun of anybody's linguistic abilities. I've tried to learn whole new languages as an adult and I know how difficult that can be. Also, I seem to have spent my life shunting between people who mock the languages that I can follow and they don't. So, you know, Vicky makes fun of Telugu while my schoolfriends all mocked Bangla. I make fun of a name like Kaka (because it means 'father's younger brother' in Bengali -- which leads to lots of colourful exclamations -- and potty (caca) in French) but the idea is not to put anybody down. If it offends you, I'll take it back quite amicably and I accept your right to get offended.
2. There is a reason behind the rule (to explain the correct usage of whatever it is that you don't like): sometimes I find, as I grumble about this usage or that, that the usage in question fits comfortably into the cultural context in which I experienced it. Some other times I know a simple grammatical rule that helps me out which somebody else doesn't and would be glad to know. So yes, put your knowledge out there. You never know when you'll save somebody's arse with it.
3. I do not necessarily agree with all the posts that have been contributed to RMB. By that I mean your pet peeves and mine may not be the same. But they don't have to be, right, so feel free to write about what bothers you. Some of the stuff I've linked to doesn't make me want to whip out my red marker (although this could just be last night's tequila talking and I'll have an entirely different POV on a grim Monday morning at work).
4. Thank you all for helping me clean up my own language too. RMB is working in all directions, as you've noted.
5. I've said this before but just in case you missed it -- RMB is not just for English. Do write about your irritations with other languages, if you have any. Or even if you've got a handy tip for Hindi, say, or any other language.
6. If anybody following RMB has a language query, this is a good time to come forward with it. Nobody will mock you for it. In fact, I have one of my own:
Can anybody tell me if words on both sides of the hyphen need capitals for a headline? Anybody at all? Eats, Shoots and Leaves seems to ignore the subject and I'm so confused.
