I don't mean to be a vast hulking scab about this, but the phrase is longer than, not longer then.

I only mention it because I've seen the same error innumerable times in the same thread and it's easy to fix once you know it's there.

Didn't catch your inflection before, but you seem to be saying either that people are correcting their mistakes (which they haven't) or that I didn't use modifiers carefully enough (which is probably true). If you're saying the second thing, then how does this work for you?:

"I only mention the error because I've seen it repeated several times on this very thread. Once you can identify a mistake, it becomes that much easier to fix."

(I'm using first and second person because I don't wish to point to individuals.)

I'm only guessing, but it seems like he was just taking the opportunity with the homophone talk to use "they're", "their" and "there" in a sentence.

That's what I thought initially. I just didn't want to be impolite.

Seems silly of me in retrospect.
