comment “Important that John bring/brings”
+1 Very helpful in identifying and explaining the subjunctive mood (but I ticked Jez for catching the double meaning).

comment “Important that John bring/brings”
Best answer, for pointing out the fact that there are actually two subtly different things to be said, and that the two forms are both correct and have different meanings.

revised “Important that John bring/brings”
Added tag "subjunctive" because the answers indicate that that's actually what this is about.

comment Why “unequal” but “inequality”?
So "blocking" isn't because the word form was already used to mean something else, but rather that there was already a word that means that, so there is no point making up another word to mean the same thing, even if it would make the language more consistent? +1 answer.
