Subject:login, log in, log into From:Mike Beyries <beyries -at- CSISDN -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 28 Oct 1994 12:29:30 PDT
log in to
login feels like a noun (Rick said that, too)
log into feels (a) too physical -- as in, into the house
(b) like it's grouping "in" with "to" instead
of with "log" and (c) wrong when I try to
construct the out phrase -- log outof ?
Actually, I rank the choices (1) log in to, (2) login to, (3) log into.
