The Cellar: affect means to influence, effect means result.

It's not funny, but I really think it needs to be on the front page as an everyday reminder before people will get it. Or, maybe it could be in the FAQ (if we have one).

Thank you juju. I'd never heard that before; hopefully it will help me.

I'm normally very anal about such things. If I see someone use "it's" as a possessive, I can pretty much write them off as far as having any intelligence goes. So I'm constantly pissed off by the fact that I know "affect" and "effect" are commonly transposed, but I can never myself remember which is which.

Now, if someone can explain "different from" vs. "different than" in a way that sticks in my head, I'll be set.

Mistake. Never confuse ignorance with intelligence. Also sometimes people write with passion or hurriedly. I've written posts and reread them over several times, only to go back the next day to find I've written the instead of they. It's funny how, when editing you can read what you're thinking instead of what you're writing. But, maybe this only happens to me.

If you're hip to thourough editing, read your work from end to beginning. You'll pick up almost every mistake you've made.
