I’m thinking of making a New Year’s resolution: Stop writing about the misspellings of new year and New Year’s that appear on Yahoo!.
But before I make such a radical commitment, I’d like some assurance that the madness on Yahoo! will end. I’d like to know that this is the last time Yahoo! Shine writers will neglect the capital Y:
And that they’ll stop capitalizing new year, which isn’t a holiday or a proper noun of any sort:
It’d be great if the writers on the Yahoo! Answers blog followed suit. And if they figured out that resolution should be cap-free:
OK, so what happened to the apostrophe in New Year’s in that blog post?
Again with the capitalized resolutions! The abundance of commas (all of which should be scrapped) don’t make me feel confident that the writers are paying attention to details.
Maybe I’ll wait till next year to make that resolution.
