Didn't you just try to write an issue about the hazards of foolishly omitting serial commas yourself, recently?

Anyway, I'm actually here to say that in #1232, "thou shall not" should be "thou shalt not", at least if you care about accurate archaic-English grammar... which I think you should, given that the option doesn't have enough errors for the errors themselves to be funny.

This nation received issue #446 In the Land of Milk and Money? Seems kinda odd for "mothers" to worry about having enough breast milk when I have the policy "No Sex" (Biological Reproduction is Prohibited).

While I believe it is technically possible for women to nurse when they have not given birth (and No Sex does not mean no family mechanics), it takes a lot of explanation, so I have amended this issue.

People with the No Sex policy can no longer receive it.

I got Issue #684 which mentions an immigrant from Marche Noire being a "well respected resident of our country", even though I have the "No Immigration" policy installed.

Issue 445.1:
the mere idea that a change in which behaviours to reward, and that my organisation should finance that change retroactively, amounts to legislative tyranny.

The first part of this sentence combined with the last doesn't quite sound right.

Also, shouldn't the issue text use "dumb quotes"?

Can you clarify what sounds incorrect here?
Taxes are designed to reward certain behaviours over others, by offering a scheme of incentives and disincentives to those behaviours: the mere idea that a change in which behaviours to reward, and that my organisation should finance that change retroactively, amounts to legislative tyranny."


Looks fine.

Also, shouldn't the issue text use "dumb quotes"?

It is using dumb-quotes.

Amended. Nation with that policy should be unable to receive it now.

#1245 uses "Piddleton" four times and "Piddelton" once (in the fourth option).

Also, this was never responded to:

After checking the use of the serial comma, which was discarded, is there a similar choice for hyphen vs. en/em dash? There are several issues'
38, option 2 (approximated by double hyphen, already better than the single -)
73, title
274 title
597, option 3
600, option 5
603, option 2
611, option 1
826, option 4
853, option 3
877, option 2
884, option 2
1009, option 3
that have a simple hyphen where the en/em dash would be appropriate. :lol:

This is a stylistic change. It doesn't need changing.

If another editor feels like going through and changing them, that's up to them.

In issue 1073, "Much Ado About Everything", there is a period before the comma in the first sentence of the first/second option:

1/2. “What these immature juveniles need is good ol’ discipline!” says Major Dubois, a retired army officer., known by his neighbors as ‘The Major’.


This also doesn't match the text in the issue as listed here on the forum, which would be correct.

In issue #1199, that's to be verified, but I believe the name of the terrorist is randomly generated, and I got a female name. But in the last option, it said "he" instead of "she", si it should be replaced by the proper macro.

The terrorist's name is set to be a randomly generated male name and seems to be working.

Do you remember what name you received?

Bump. I haven't gotten to issue again to see if this is still there, but it hasn't gotten a response.

In #802, "Fort @@ANIMAL@@" should capitalize every word of the macro.

In 1233 the description refers to the “Church of Pizza”. Isn’t it usually the Cult of Pizza?

390.2 talks about spreading democracy and is available for autocratic nations. Why would an autocratic nation want to spread democracy though?
