Oh god, not the octothorp discussion again. I beg of you, search the
archives for help on this (we do have archives, don't we?). While you're
at it, look for the following:

- midnight/noon: 12 AM or 12 PM?
- passive voice: friend or foe?
- certification: godsend for the profession or curse from the devil?

Those are some of my favorite recurring topics. Have I left anything
out? Personally, I think it's time for another heated debate on sexist
language. Any takers?
