This article sure was a good idea, but there is one error (at the present time). It's a useful article. Now, whenever the subject comes up all a person has to do is refer the questioner to this article and it will answer the question.
If you can find the errror, good for you! If you can't find the error, then maybe it has been fixed, and that's good too.
The heading "To agree with a positive statement" occurs twice; the second time, it should read "To agree with a negative statement."
The points made are good to start with, except that "Nor do I" is hopelessly formal, at least here in Canada.
Agreeing and disagreeing are an important part of language.

'Nor do I.' or 'Neither do I.'
There should be:
To agree with a negative statement [ instead of positive]
Is my comment correct?
That's it exactly. (I'm sure Tdol (Richard) will fix it ASAP.)

As Tdol's away, I've fixed it for him. Thanks Ron! ;-)
Thanks, Red! You're the best!
