I rarely rag on people (at least, publicly) for spelling, grammatical, and formatting issues. I often eschew capitals and tend to do things more in line with what makes logical or aesthetic sense to me than the MLA might strictly approve of (e.g., I only put punctuation inside a sentence-ending quote if it "belongs" with the quote, rather than simply terminates the sentence). I'm a firm believer in descriptive over prescriptive, and just don't have the inclination to be the Internet grammar police.

But this one, it's a serious pet peeve of mine:

Walla is half of the name of a city in the state of Washington.

Voilà is an interjection from French that literally means "see there!"
