I know that there are a great many students of all levels on the MGoBoard, in addition to many post-graduates who are interested in writing. There are STEM students who, despite their technical orientation, wish to learn better writing and communication skills. God bless them all. There are liberal arts students whose future careers in education, journalism, the law, etc., depend upon being skilled communicators.
One of several basic grammatical mistakes that I see in comment writing at MGoBlog is the misuse of the syllogism, "It begs the question." People -- young students, I presume -- frequently write, "it begs the question," when they really mean "it raises the question."
This issue of misuse comes up so frequently, that a web site was devoted to the annoying error. And then, linking to that site, Roy Peter Clark of The Poynter Institute took the time to write this post at Poynter.com.
So don't be a jerk, and misuse the phrase, "it begs the question." Underclass students in English composition ought to know this. No self-respecting professional should commit this mistake in usage. The only explanation for the error seems to be people who think that they know a little bit about writing, and who want to appear sophisticated, but who are in fact poseurs.
