Awesome. One more reason for me to fork over money I don’t have and buy the newest updated version of the AP Stylebook. If AP knew that they were planning to make the change from “e-mail” to “email”, why wouldn’t they just have changed it when they changed “web site”?
A comment made by Mashable user pmindemann explains my feelings about the change in a nutshell:
The AP style fails in particular, here, if the second word starts with an “e,” such as “economy.” What will you do then? Say “eeconomy?” Of course not. That’s stupid. And so is the AP for failing to see the repercussions of this poorly made decision.”
