comment Plural name apostrophe position
Why would you assume that James is an exception to the rule you mentioned? How would James be any different than, say, Jones? It seems very arbitrary. :-\

comment How to handle a name that includes an exclamation point (or other punctuation)?
To be fair, ! is not a valid domain name character, so it's impossible for Yahoo! to use it, though I'm sure they would if they could.

comment Is there a word that describes a person who constantly underestimates situations?
Hm. I don't know if that necessarily indicates underestimation. For example, an optimist might actually overestimate how trustworthy people are. What do you think?
