Seems to me I can't be the only one who sees typos in tiny ads. If there was a thread for them, then someone could fix them at some point. UNLESS it's Paul deliberately trying to attract the attention of us anal editor types! Now THAT'S devious!! I would not put that past him! Cast a wide net to catch all the fish, some of us fall for typo bait :D

I suggest a format of post the whole line, then the corrected line, with your change in bold.

I have a knack for fixing things like this ... um ... sorry ... here is a consilitory tiny ad:

Tiny ads rock. They make me giggle. Paul is a twisted genius. Keep it up, sir!

I'd hate to have to pick my favorite ad, they make me laugh.

If gardening naked gets the most clicks, maybe you need to add a badge for that :) "I like chickens, goats, gardening naked..." There seems to be a niche for it!  Not sure what the icon would look like though :D

girl power ... turns out to be about a hundred watts. But they seriously don't like being connected to the grid. Tiny ad:

Have a great day!!!

I'll be damned. My apologies! Looks wrong to me every time I see it.
I'm probably just used to seeing the current useage only.
