More "grammar."

I read this a few months ago, and it made me smile, because it's so got dhame true. When people use quotes to separate colloquialisms from standard text because the colloquialisms are "wacky" or "nonstandard," the "Suck Meter" for the entire universe "goes up" a few "notches," because somebody has decided to waste the readers' time by "coagulating" the prose with superfluous punctuation to, in their own mind, save face by pretending they know better than to use "wacky" phraseology, but choose to to show they're "hip" to the "times."

Nuts. Absolutely nuts.
