A . . . lot not ALOT

This is a pet peeve of mine, actually, it is a pet peeve of my Grade 8 core teacher. (In my junior high your core teacher thought most subjects, but you would rotate to other class for specialized stuff like Science, Art and Music.) I digress, 'alot' is not a word, in spite of the majority of the internet believing it is. I don't think this is me being anal, or a stickler. It's a really simple, small thing that isn't so complicated that it should be restricted to the realm of scholars, and English majors. A lot of people do it, but that doesn't make it right, it just makes them ignorant. So please, for the love of the language, and my sanity, don't do it, just don't.

This rant has be brought to you by percolating my brain through the sludge scraped from the bottom of the World of Warcraft forums, a cesspool of internet diarrhea.
