      It does go quite fast. However, I did notice the complaint about "thru," which is actually an acceptable way to spell through, at least according to Merriam-Webster.

              I'm right here, dear. I haven't been feeling well lately, and the number of errors in the current fora posts has frankly overwhelmed me. I just can't keep up. Using your sentence above as an example, you have three--arguably four or five--in a sentence just 11 words long. Error-to-word ratios above 25% are exhausting. If I stray from reality to grab an analogy, they affect me like kryponite affects Clark Kent.

              James dear, thank you so much for thinking of me with that clever avatar.

                <<i havent seen miss a in a while, where is she?>>

                I haven't seen Miss A. in a while. Where is she?
                Capital I
                Apostrophe
                Capital M
                Capital A
                Full stop after A
                Full stop/capital letter to make two sentences. (Counts as one amendment.)

                Arguably 6!

                Now, Ma'am, about those double hyphens in your post...

                  That's not exactly an error, seeing as it could be correct the way he had it, as a compound sentence. It would also be correct your way, of course, just by separating the one compound sentence into two simple sentences.

                    A legitimate challenge, although I disagree with it. It's not really a compound sentence in that it addresses two points without firmly establishing a link between them. I would accept a semicolon in place of the full stop/capital letter as a reasonable compromise.

                    ('m not being pedantic; I'm being pernickety. It is a subtle distinction but, I think, not unimportant.)

                    Hands up who can guess how bored I am tonight!

                          never enter your pin number on an atm machine
                          you could get the HIV virus...
                          I don't get it

                            ATM stands for Automated Teller Machine.
                            so ATM Machine means Automated Teller Machine Machine.

                            HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
                            so HIV Virus means Human Immunodeficiency Virus Virus.

                            its REDUNDANT!

                              You missed one: PIN stands for Personal Identity Number, so "PIN number" means "Personal Identity Number number".

                              Thus, three errors in one: PIN number, ATM machine, HIV virus.
