OSNews, Generic OSes For a very long time now, OSNews' comment sections were governed by a set of rules that dated back to the very early days of OSNews. This set of rules has been amended a number of times over the years, but we were never really comfortable with such a dry, silly list of arbitrary rules that nobody read anyway. They were too much like an... EULA. So, we decided a change was in order, and I started work on a completely new approach.

"For someone who accuses me of bad English, you might want to look up the correct plural of "hyperbole".


Well, it is actually hyperbolae in latin, in nominative. So he was right.
"

Even in Latin, I thought that "hyperbolae" was the plural form of "hyperbola" (the mathematical concept) rather than "hyperbole" (the rhetorical device).
