I was dismayed to receive an e-mail from a friend and reader early in December about the closing of the Apostrophe Protection Society. You can read that e-mail here. Contrary to its headline, however, ignorance and laziness have not won.
I looked at the society’s web site, www.apostrophe.org.uk, and I was pleased to find that hugely increased demand forced the site to close for a while, but it will be coming back in January 2020 “for reference and interest.”
It’s always good to know that someone (else) is Serious about punctuation.
