Re: " wine has no affect on "
There was discussion sometime list week about the variations of your/you're vanishing (because of idiots who don't know the difference between you have (your) and you are (you're).
I can't countenance that horror.
But maybe the affect/effect business can go. Because they are so contradictory and confusing.
Affect -[ noun ] feelings or emotions [ verb] to produce an effect
Effect [noun] the result of an action or various related meanings [verb ] to make something happen, i.e. produce a result or effect.
And frankly, since " it does my head in" and I'm used to that sort of stuff, it's madness to impose it on folks just going about their daily business.
