The subjective filter warns against "How do you memoize a value that may be nil?", but not against "How to memoize a value that may be nil?".

I used to wonder why so many people used the latter. Now I know it's Jeff's fault!

Plz hlp. The saving of the English language is urgent.

@dboarman: I'm not sure if that was a joke or serious, but I was referring to memoize: Wikipedia says it's perferctly cromulent –  Andrew Grimm Nov 9 '10 at 6:05

The English language started going downhill long before any of the SE sites. While I empathize with your desire to promote keen grammatical skills, there are other media at fault and we shouldn't rely on the subjective filter.

EDIT: Thank you, Bill, for that grammatical correction.
