    I normally never nitpick other people’s blogs, but with a blog that has a regular “grumpy editor”, I feel at least obliged to ask one question.

    You always write “of cause”. I’ve never seen that phrase before, except as in “Evaluation of cause-of-death statistics for Brazil”. Do you mean “of course” (not to be confused with the navigational term “off course”), as in the Swedish “naturligtivs” and “sjlvklart”?

    As the Grouchy Copy-Editor was unavailable today, the matter has been referred to his even more annoying colleague, the Grumpy Copy-Editor who finds that the use of the phrase “of cause” twice in a short text is overdoing it and risks pulling the discussion off course.

    If this continues, the Cranky Copy-Editor will be summoned.
