* Mentioning Windows 10, let around saying it's ''good'', around longtime Windows users is pretty much asking for trouble.

* Eating curry? The only acceptable spiciness level is the highest one offered for whatever eatery you're at or whatever brand you're eating. Having your curry at a "mild" level is worse than first-degree murder.

* Another one when writing English -- use apostrophes correctly. They are to be used to indicate contractions or possession -- ''not'' the plural form of a noun. You like pizzas and [=CDs=], not pizza's and CD's.

* Another one when writing English -- use apostrophes correctly. They are to be used to indicate contractions or possession the possessive form of nouns -- ''not'' the plural form of a noun. You like pizzas and [=CDs=], not pizza's and CD's.



** The exception to the "apostrophes mark possessives" rule: ''it's'', with an apostrophe, is a contraction of ''it is''; ''its'', with no apostrophe, is the possessive form. Do not confuse them around GrammarNazi types (for that matter, be careful calling people Grammar Nazis - some resent the comparison to Nazi Germany, some resent the notion that good grammar is unimportant and they're just being pedantic, and some [[TakeAThirdOption are apparently just looking for something else to chew you out about]]).

''nouns'' have apostrophes; possessive ''pronouns'' never do.

And ''certainly'' don't use "your's", "her's", "our's", or "their's", because these are ''never'' right.
*** To a lesser degree, this is the source of the your/you're and their/they're (but not "there") confusion, as these are also cases where the possessive pronoun and the contraction of the pronoun with its proper conjugation of "to be" ("are" for both you and they; "is" for it) sound the same. The other pronouns have no such problem ("I'm" versus "my/mine", "he's" versus "his", "we're" vs. "our/ours").

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' has Ra's Al Ghul. His name was originally meant to be pronounced 'Raesh', this from [[WordOfGod Denny O'Neil]] who did his research (his daughter asked her college professor). In ''Film/BatmanBegins'' it's pronounced 'Rahs' or 'Roz'. Pronouncing it in any way other than 'Raesh' will attract much ire from the fans. Nolan was (falsely) accused of racism for allegedly making everyone deliberately mispronounce the name because he didn't want the original Arabic pronunciation in his movie. This is lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', where Terry mispronounces Ra's as 'Rahs' only to be corrected by Talia [[spoiler: actually Ra's.]]

His According to [[WordOfGod Denny O'Neil]], his name was originally meant to be pronounced 'Raesh', this from [[WordOfGod Denny O'Neil]] who did his research (his daughter asked her college professor). 'Raesh'. While the phrase "head of the demon" does indeed translate into "ra's al-ghuul" in real arabic (suggesting the character's name is NOT supposed to consist of a made-up language), the pronounciation [[CriticalResearchFailure does not]] contain the sounds "i" or "sh". In ''Film/BatmanBegins'' it's pronounced 'Rahs' or 'Roz'. Pronouncing 'Rahs', which is much closer to the actual pronounciation. Still, pronouncing it in any way other than 'Raesh' will attract much ire from the fans. Nolan was (falsely) accused of racism for allegedly making everyone deliberately mispronounce the name because he didn't want the original Arabic pronunciation in his movie.

** Just try referring to either of the original villains from LEGOAdventurers as "Sam Sinister" and watch the {{Flame War}}s erupt.[[note]]This is the result of a series of unfortunate {{Dub Name Change}}s where the name passed freely between them before finally sticking to the one who did not originally possess it, ultimately causing much confusion.[[/note]]
