I consider it my calling to dispel the myth that it's against the rules to split infinitives. It's fine to split infinitives, and sometimes, I split them when I don't have to just to maliciously make a point. p.56
I fell for Grammar Girl's podcasts, especially those that vindicate and explain my grammar (usage) pet peeves. One example is end punctuation and quotation marks. In America, they generally go on the inside, in case you were wondering. The "Why Are British English and American English Different?" episode explains it. Scroll down to "Typesetters Quotations Versus Logical Quotations." Like Fogarty, I think the American way is illogical, but it's how we do it here, and I get annoyed when I see people doing it wrong. Same with Anglophile spellings. So annoying!
