    My biggest pet peeve is advice & advise used inappropriately. When you are asking someone for their opinion, it is asking for ADVICE. When you asking for a response, hence you are looking for someone to ADVISE you regarding a matter. I know I sometimes make spelling errors especially in this technological age but I really try not too.

    I'm not quite sure what this is supposed to mean. I was pointing out that it is, in fact, a word. There's no snobbery intended.

    Believe it or not, I worked somewhere where not only was that how it was paged overhead, but how it was listed in the hospital directory as well.
