    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...

    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...

    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...
