#3 So my elementary school teachers and high school English teachers were introverts and jerks? BTW, that was back in the days of 'standards' which seem to be fading at a discernible rate in the contemporary education systems.

#4 I must have a "less agreeable" personality, then. I attribute that to how in-depth our teachers taught us about grammar and punctuation and how they, and the other kids at the time, considered proper use to be required in the then-modern world.

Although the folks at work do send me their documents to be 'proof-read' and corrected. I carry the belief that documents coming out of our firm should be professional and shouldn't have the aura of being written in crayon.

#6 Since I was in charge of writing much of the software, I was stuck proof-reading the documentation.

Technical issues were understandable. The poor grammar and spelling by "so-called" professional tech writers was deplorable; and that was 20 years ago.

#8 I don't mind a typo here and there in a Rantburg comment. But when someone sends me unintelligible email and expects me to take them seriously I get a little annoyed.

#13 I started proofreading my father's writings when I was seven, going on instinct alone. Some people are just bothered by such things. It's true I am an introvert, but I do try not to be a jerk.
