Way back in the mists of time - 2,February 2003 at 8:27 to be precise - bluepxl said: "..... though none of them are ideal..." Of course this SHOULD have been ".....though none of them is ideal...".
"None" is a negation of "one" and so it is, by definitiuon, singular. It therefore requires singular verb.
Ironic, isn't it, that bluepxl makes such a mistake in a debate about whether "neither" should take a singuler or a plural". :)
