Pedant baiting by the Irish Times. I’m hyperventilating.

    Is that because of The Times of London’s Irish edition being in print the last couple of weeks?

    A bold claim indeed! Would there be loads of pieces by ‘social influencers’ at all? Ooh, I really hope so.

    Nothing wrong here. If I said “he is very knowledgable about Dublin and the solar system” that makes perfect sense and communicates something very different to “he is very knowledgable about the solar system”.

      Nah Gerry ye have that wrong. Cos like Dublin IS a city within the solar system. Same way Ireland is PART OF the world. Not a separate thing you can be well informed on AS WELL as the world.

      Ergo the bus ad is stupid.

    No full stops in headlines and ads, it would be bad form to add one.

    Perfectly logical ad: a) be well informed on Ireland, since this is an Irish newspaper; b) extend this goodness of informedness to the rest of the world.

      Nah. Lazy, clumsily worded slogan. Probably done in five minutes by some intern cos the IT fired all their subs back in the day. Shill is exactly right about why too
