RE: Will I be Arrested if I End a Sentence with a Preposition?

I feel the need to respond to this, since I started this whole "controversy".
I was NOT referring to this forum, but to every day conversations with other
people. I used to use the word "at" at the end of my sentences also, but once
someone pointed it out to me, it became MY pet peeve. I also make mistakes in
spelling & grammar here because I am not the best typer (typist?). I am sorry
if anyone took my peeve personally because it was not directed at anyone in
particular. I will be sure to seriously consider my responses if/when I decide
to post again. Thank you.

Defiance, OH
