I try to be tolerant of the varying degrees of English aptitude of the people around me, but there's something that happens often here that bugs me. "Advices" is not a word. The noun advice is always singular (you can't have more than one advice). The verb advises means to give someone advice. Examples: Can I have some advice please? Yes, I would be happy to advise you. Twester advises the room that "advice" can never contain the letter 's'. OK, I've had my little outburst of OCD - carry on. But, can we make this post a sticky?
