Most of my deviations from the high school grammer
book fall in the "style" category

** Granted, folks can argue whether a particular principle belongs to
style or to grammar. But once you've decided where the borderline
runs, a deviation from style isn't a deviation from grammar.
Leaving gender politics aside (as an already well-discussed topic),
what actual grammatical rules have you found interfering with
communication?

(As you can guess, I mistrust "If it feels good, do it" as the
writer's ultimate guideline... outside poetry, at least.)
