I Don't Read Stories With Horrible Spelling

    Hell No!

    I'm a crazy anal ***** when it comes to poor spelling in an EP story. There is no reason for it. The site comes with an automatic spell check option. Use it! If there are a bunch of misspellings, I will send you a message telling you that I couldn't read it because of all of the...

    Just Stop It Already!

    When I see an article that has terrible spelling, I immediately lose interest. I'm not talking about when someone screws up whether and weather, or shoo and shoe, (though i do have a thing about they're, their, and there...). I'm talking about when it's so bad it's almost...

    Same.

    I can't help it, horrible spelling just puts me right off. I'm not asking for perfect spelling (not even close) or anything here, just a little respect for the English language! When I see all these pointless shortened words that supposedly make typing quicker or whatever it just...

    No Language Snob, Me

    As someone who uses the English language as a tool of work, I find it really hard to make myself read stories with bad spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm not a language snob, though. I certainly don't mind using txt and blog abbreviations in private communications, as these...

    Punctuation Is Good

    It's more grammar than spelling, but I hate getting messages that have no punctuation.  I have a boss that loves to send me emails about projects he wants done that make absolutely no sense sometimes.  Drives me nuts.  Would it really be that much trouble to put a...
