Before you accuse me of being the grammar police, I in no way endorse any government agency telling anybody how to write and in no way think that you do not have the right to write as properly or improperly as you would like. It merely looks weird to me.
    Yep, I got it. I'm the resident grammar/spelling/usage/math Nazi at home, and sometimes here, too. I get tired of reading about muzzle "breaks", Glock "clips", the "breach" end of the barrel, and while I'm at it, when did "alot" ever become one word? And the word "none" is singular, since it's a contraction of "not one", so please don't write "none of the states are", it should be "none of the states is." But I usually am able to resist the urge to correct well-intentioned people. ("Text speak", on the other hand, will invite open criticism from me.)

    But are you sure "noone" isn't Olde English for the time of day when the sun is directly overhead?

    Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits fame. "I'm Henry the Eighth I am....Henry the Eighth I am , I am. I got married to the widow next door....she's been married seven times before and everyone was a Henry....(Henry). She wouldn't have a Willie nor a Sam. I'm her Eighth old man....I'm Henry.....Henry the Eighth I am ...I am....Henry the Eighth I am."
