While we're at spelling skills and other such things, I thought that Ivy alumni ought to know that the plural of "Ivy" is "Ivies," but you wouldn't know that from the constant references to the "Ivys" on this board. Grade school stuff.

Not everyone agrees with you.

1. Perplexingly, to me at least, having not everyone agree with me seems to be a constant.

2. Thanks for note about Business Insider. Unfortunately, with U.S. literacy plummeting like a rock these days, having people "agree with you" is a decidedly shaky indicator of whether or not you are correct. My counter to Business Insider: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ivy.

I agree with you, but it's a losing battle. Surprised at the Ivy educated who don't seem to know the difference between "your" and "you're" and so on. But there's an excuse for everything--ADS, laziness, too busy to proofread, etc.
