The fight to save the apostrophe revives

Even though the brilliant, talented, and hard-working Anu Garg, creator of A Word A Day email, has declared “Death to the Apostrophe,” there may be another way forward for this much-misused punctuation mark.

Things looked pretty dark when John Richards, creator of the Apostrophe Protection Society, announced a few weeks ago that he was shutting down his website. The announcement apparently stirred apostrophe lovers everywhere to action:

Due to the recent decision made by John Richards (see below), www.apostrophe.org.uk has had a massive 600-fold increase in demand. This has resulted in our Server’s bandwidth being exceeded and, as a result, we have closed the full site until early January 2020. We apologise for disappointing you but do come back in the New Year! Source: APS Temp Page

Thus the fight to save the apostrophe continues.

Happy New Year!
