Infuriating Mechanics Errors Made Cute and Fuzzy

Out of a healthy respect for my blood pressure, I try not to freak out too much over people's mechanics errors. This is especially important online, where such errors swarm across pages, knocking out capital letters and doing cruel things to apostrophes. Like many writers, though, I have at least one pet peeve: "alot."

Or at least I did, until I learned that what these people are actually talking about is the Alot, an adorable and highly talented creature. Ah, that's much better.
