  1. I know it also says this in the original article too, but just for future purposes, "HIV virus" is redundant. The "V" stands for "virus" already.

  2. Post needs some editing - the link supposedly to an apes article actually goes to the Justin Bieber article - and the quote about the confirmation of Judge Millett should be moved from under Ian McKellen.

    But if you ever forget to put the apostrophe in "it's" don't expect me to correct you. That's just a silly waste of time.

  3. @Glenn - just came to say the same thing. It's a mess today.

  4. I'd worry more about the "its".

    Like PIN number, ATM machine, and LCD display, "HIV virus" is here to stay.

  5. The only time that it is appropriate to put an apostrophe in "its" is when you are using it as a contraction, i.e. "it is" become "it's". The possessive is "its", unlike with most other words, e.g. "Fred's". The paragraph about HIV is correct in its use of both "its" and "it's".
