New Rule: "On Line"

With apologies to Brits and old Americans who see people standing in a row and describe that as "on line," please fucking quit it. "Online" is now one word, and it describes a state of being connected to Teh Internets, or an adjective applied to some activity performed with or thru Teh Internets. Journalists describing people "waiting on line" to vote at a polling place are communicating poorly with maybe half the American population. Take it overseas, or if you love Brits so much, just say people are "queuing" to vote.
