@jackgill: My original post was an example. I updated the question with a better example, followed by an explanation.

comment Is it ever correct to have a space before a question or exclamation mark?
As a special case, please do put a space before the punctuation when ending a sentence with a hyperlink or similar so it will be easier to select, and so automatic hyperlink creation won't gobble it. Instead of "Try asking on english.stackexchange.com." (results in a broken link), say "Try asking on english.stackexchange.com ." I do this as a courtesy to others, even if it's breaking the rules a bit.

comment When is it OK to use OK?
To me, "okay" seems more friendly than "OK". Since capital letters typically denote shouting online, "OK" feels like an amplified "okay", meaning "I'm pissed, but okay." E.g. "I will have the site done by Friday. Sorry it's taking so long." "OK."

comment Is there a word for answering a question with a question?
A more idiomatic say it might be to use the phrase "Let me answer that by asking you this." See Brian Regan - Standing Up - Part 3, at time 6:50.

@PLL: In "If money was/were no object", is it correct to use "was" or "were"?
