    The word 'criteria' is plural without an 's'. This may not be an essential criterion to being elected president of the economics society, but it's really bugging me...

    Not strictly true, but I take your point. Sorry/ thank you/ whatever.

    Parentheses. And again, not strictly true. I was bugged by one little thing. Do you really have nothing better to do than hassle me for the rest of the evening about it?

    It was a joke. I just thought it seemed a little unfair to quote that mistake made by someone who isn't even an English native. Nevermind.

    I'm a little annoyed with myself for misspelling though!
