    It's not a grammar nazi, it's a spelling nitpick. It's also wrong, since interjections are traditionally spelled quite variably: "er" for the verb would be incorrect, but "err" for the interjection is acceptable.
    "Sacrifice" is still spelled incorrectly, though. And if you do want to be a grammar pedant, and as punctuation is part of grammar, you could point out that double question marks are only acceptable inside an annotation.

    I didn't know that. Thanks for pointing it out, SB.

    Marinkatomb, I didn't say this before, but the game you posted is great.

    Auf Kauderdeutsch. Grammatik-Nazionalsozialist auf etwas(!) besseres Deutsch. Obwohl a) ein richtiger Deutche das wahrscheinlich als Grammatik-Nazi abkürzen würde und b) die meisten Deutschen noch zu gut wissen was ein Nazi wirklich ist um die name so achtungstlos herumzuschmeißen. (Darum auch daß die meisten da PEGIDA nicht so richtig mögen.)

    Yes, indeed. There's still quite a lot of life left in that "boring" old closed Spanish.
    Though... is it really a sacrifice if you already know you're going to get the other queen in return a few moves later? (Sacrifice or not, it's still a pretty move, of course.)

    Und ein echte Deutsche würde sich nicht ein richtiger Deutche nennen, unless he thought he was right.
