Welcome. Lot's of good info here, but you might want to take off the CAPS LOCK before you post.

Enjoy.
Please don't take this as an attack on your writing skills, but you might want to drop the unnecessary apostrophies. Here is my logic: You are not using an apostrophy to make lot possessive, e.g., that is the lot's border, nor are you trying to say that the lot's (the lot is) bigger than you thought. You are writing, I think, that, "There is a lot of good info here [etc.]..." Therefore, I think that the apostrophy is not needed and with it, your phraseology is incorrect.

Dick, why are you so concerned about an individual's use of an apostrophy? If it was a mistake, it was a mistake. Not many people really care about grammatical usage or mishaps on a an informal forum like this. Save it for the classroom.

Then I guess that not too many people care about whether someone types in all caps. Obviously, you didn't see the contradiction. "rs" took the time to write the following to BrabusPower: "Welcome. Lot's of good info here, but you might want to take off the CAPS LOCK before you post." So "rs" was commenting on formatting style and using incorrect grammer to do so. He commented on the use of caps and I commented on rs' grammatical correctness.

My feeling is that if one is going to comment on what he or she believes to be incorrect writing style, he or she ought to be correct in the grammar used to point that out. Just my opinion. I'm sorry it's not alright with you that I share that!

You are absolutely correct. I made an error! The error was a typo that I didn't catch and I apologize. Doing something like that certainly has a negative impact on the point one is trying to make, doesn't it?

My Cap's off to you

Is it "CAPS off" or "CAP's off" key?
