comment why is “their” the wrong usage in this sentence?
That can easily be fixed by taking out one letter, 's'. Then the problem would be solved and there need not be further debate about 'their'. Whoo, problem solved, yeah?

comment why is “their” the wrong usage in this sentence?
@FumbleFingers I honestly believe that was bad wording, originally, on my end. My apologies. And when Mechanical snail had put in his/her comment, I was moved to debate a rather pointless argument; has since been removed.

comment why is “their” the wrong usage in this sentence?
@FumbleFingers Where did I say that singular 'they' is only valid with inanimate objects? I didn't. Instead, I had said that 'family' is NOT an inanimate object. If anything, you were mistaken.

@cbmeeks Okay, but yeah, just take out the second comma and then you're good!

@tchrist I do see that, but the last sentence was based off of my speech. As you can see, though, my response and correction to the question is all that matters. ;)

I don't see why you find it necessary to tag in 'using your default browser'. Assuming this is on a webpage, they would already be using their default browser, yeah?

comment When speaking of age 13 and over, is it 12+ or 13+?
When you look at children toys, they don't say 3+ for ages four and up. No, they are saying that ages 3 and up are allowed to play with that toy.

comment why is “their” the wrong usage in this sentence?
@Mechanicalsnail As I had clearly said in my answer, you don't define family as something inanimate. One would think that if something were NOT inanimate, that it would then be animate. Thus, what you should have said was 'Concepts can't be animate', and you'd be wrong there too. Family, if used as a concept, is a moving one. Therefore, animate. I'd hate to think of 'family' as "stagnant".
