Internet loosers worth ignoring

This post on The Senator's blog presents a good opportunity to lay out an Internet truism. If you mistake "there" for "their" or "loose" for "lose" once in a conversation, that should be ignored.

If you do it twice or more, no one should listen to anything you say ever again.

The Internet is an amazing thing, but it's tendency to hand megaphones to idiots is a problem the rest of us need to bear in mind.

Love how you bring the message home with "it's" there.

I was hoping someone would catch that. Hypocrisy is the key.

For the record - I didn't catch it at first. Absolute accident. But when I did see it, I knew I had to let it stand.
