    ...you forgot punctuation, and the original post's main topic: pronunciation. ;)

    Yes, that is a "violation" of the rules that appears often on the Forum here. It bugs me too.

    Why is it questionable? You have two closely related complete sentences there. That's what a semicolon is for.
