> What are the best topics for starting grammar wars?

* he/she vs. their vs. creative writing to avoid gender and pronoun
* the serial comma
* the cereal comatose (people who eat too much sugar in the morning that
they pass out before 10 AM)
* the value of grammatical understanding or its discussions (or debates)
* use of the first person
* this thread

Whether this list should have full stops at the end of each item, or
just this thread.
