If you don't want to restart the discussion, don't post messages that 
restart the discussion. ("I wanna say something snarky at you, but I 
don't want you to have a comeback.") And certainly don't write /two/ new 
messages on the topic.

There is no "correct" way to write apostrophes, because the system we 
use to write Klingon is completely arbitrary anyway. But there is an 
/ugly/ way to write the apostrophes, and that is where they change 
directions. The text I copied and pasted used quotation marks in both 
directions, and I chided myself for not checking and correcting that.
