In a recent post on the second person pronoun, I posited that, if one were to go the archaic route, it might be better to be consistent with the archaism and use -eth endings for the third person singular. I repent. My official stance on -eth endings is not even once, with possible exceptions where the KJV is, for better or worse, read or where it seems artistically appropriate, just this one time, to do it.

A few years back, in one and only one post, I made reference to a few bishops using the style, eg, "+Job". This is inappropriate and silly. In my defense, at least it wasn't "+JOB". I repent. The proper way would be "Archbishop Job", "Abp. Job", or any appropriate variation.

I'm sure there are other things in the record that need to be corrected, but those came to mind.
