comment Should “pseudo” words be hyphenated?
@Alenanno - I guess it is general reference, but given what looks to be the correct answer below, the incorrect hyphenated usage is fairly common, so I think there's some value in this question.

Great answer, thank you and +1. I assume you lifted all those quotations with the aid of some sort of eReader?

comment Can a colon split a verb and the rest of the predicate?
I can change the accept if someone puts up a better answer. I know Andrew personally, and I'm confident he'd get over it quickly :)
