Grammar Geek

Here is the explanation of last week's grammar poll:

Further vs Farther

In the simplest of explanations - since that's about all I can handle.
Farther  has the word FAR hiding in it - so it's to do with physical distance.
How much farther is it to the next pub?
Further - is used to describe distance of a non-physical kind (or metaphysical/figurative).
I continue to further my pub-crawling education.

Amazon Tags in the US has dumped Tags. That great marketing tool that we spent hours learning about and more hours implementing and having all our friends add to our books has been pulled by Amazon. The consensus is that it's due to 'tag abuse'
So is UK soon to follow?
Do we spend more hours working on and tags?
