    LEAVE ME OUT OF THIS!!!!!

    I likely would've had the same attitude... if the writer doesn't have the wherewithal to spell most words correctly, I'm sure whatever she wrote doesn't make much sense, either. HOWEVER, I learned another valuable lesson I'll carry with me the rest of my life, taught to me by an...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    He isn't nice, at least not with me. He never helps me, he treats leave like I don't exist, he is rude. He doesn't know how I actually am and he doesn't wants to.
