Solidus Editorial Solutions Prostrate
There are certain typos that drive certain proofreaders crazy. Just batshit crazy. I have a proofreader friend who loses her everlovin’ mind when she sees decades written out as “the 1920’s” or “the 80’s.” (And if you don’t see the problem with those, I suggest you steer clear of her.)

I was forced to confront mine at the Topsfield Fair last month.

I was wandering around the fruits & vegetables barn, nonchalantly examining the prize-winning tomatoes and the best-in-show eggplant, when I stopped to read a little blurb set up next to the cabage (their spelling, not mine). The text listed some of the health benefits of cabage, including its ability to help prevent prostrate cancer.

Really, Topsfield Fair people? Really?

I really wish I had a nickel for every time I’ve seen the phrase “prostrate cancer.” I could buy Mars. Just for the record, once and for all, it’s prostate cancer. It’s not prostrate cancer. There’s no such thing as prostrate cancer, nor has anyone ever had a problem with an enlarged prostrate.

To be prostrate means to be stretched out with face on the ground in adoration or submission. The prostate is a male gland that secretes an alkaline, viscous fluid.

And if you’re a guy who can’t figure out the difference between prostate and prostrate, you’re in for quite a shock during your next physical.

I can't deal with the whole "your" "you're" debacle. Whenever i see someone use "you're" correctly, it almost looks weird; like it doesn't belong because I hardly ever see it. Batshit crazy indeed...

So what's the word from the Solidus pros on
Do's and Don'ts
vs.
Dos and Don'ts
The first is wrong but looks more right.

Well, the general rule of thumb is that you don't use the apostrophe unless adding the "s" creates a new word. This is why they're the Oakland A's and not the Oakland As. Dos is both an antique Microsoft program and a very familiar Spanish word, so the apostrophe is called for. With don't, you would never put apostrophes on either side of the "t," so the best way to phrase it is Do's and Don'ts.

Thanks for the final word on that vexing issue. Now I have to go back and revert a bunch of self righteous "corrections" I made to I wiki I help moderate. :-)

Education provides benefits only when the instructors are being honest and doing justice with their. The task of every instructor is to make a child able to learn by himself and develop in him a thirst of knowing more and gaining more.
