    I just wrote a scathing (well, not so scathing, but sarcastic) reply about February, then decided to look it up in the dictionary before posting. Much to my surprise, while "feb-roo-ary" is listed as the first pronounciation, "feb-yoo-ary" was also listed as acceptable. I think this is a case of common usage eventually becoming acceptable, but I'll go with it and apologize to all of you "r" droppers.

    I am not a hateful person ... but using "..." in formal writing irritates me as well. Borderline acceptable in email... But my boss used it in my review ...

    ODH I completely agree. I have no problem with people using appropriate grammar for the medium they are using, but using IM grammar in an email or message bard post is extremely annoying.

    I had a former boss use "....." multiple times in a letter that was going out to 15,000 people. When I fixed it, he questioned me; that's one of the many reasons why he is my former boss.
