      Not only that, but her name is McCartNEY.

          Sorry, but it's her $^&%&%)^ing NAME. I think we should respect people's names enough to spell them correctly.

            this isn't a subject that's open to debate

              Great to see an athlete always smiling!

                McCarthy vs McCartney isn't even a question of spelling, they're two wholly different names. You could just as well start throwing the book at people for pointing out Seyni is from Niger, not Nigeria.

                    There is an English folk musician, Eliza Carthy:

                      The important word here is critiquing. In one of my early posts, I used the word necropsy. gh gently suggested that I meant necrology. He was, of course, correct, and I took it as supportive, not critical. We cleaned up my mess.

                      My take on this is that a suggestion of checking a spelling, or a PM, is not critical, and can be positive.

                      In this case, I would recommend that the thread topic should be edited by a mod. If anyone ever does a search for McCartney, this thread should be in the results.

                        Looking forward to cranking up some McCarthy-Lennon classics...

                        (or are they Lennon-McCarthy...?)
