Recently, we read a report about a grammar vigilante who goes out at nights to anonymously correct business signs in Bristol, England. Certainly, in a world where thieves and kidnappers like to use the darkness as their tool, this man’s effort to correct people’s grammar is certainly a breath of fresh air. As an English language magazine, we don’t he went too far. Just did what ought to be done.
This is not the first time that a grammar nazi has fulfilled their duty though. There have been examples in the past too, and we’ll take a look at some of them.
