For those of you who missed the locked post, this journal is in the process of being locked. You must be on my friends-list in order to read the bulk of it. :)

As with anyone, feel free to just add me (or email me to remind me!) if you want access.

Lots of back-locking to do still, though. :/

I don't know what those two authors prove, anyway. What I've seen of their work wasn't interesting at all. You're not wrong however. And you're cute, so you could misspell every other word and it wouldn't matter, ultimately.

How utterly depressing.

I hope that they prove that spelling is not necessarily a pre-requisite to literacy - I am a notoriously abysmal speller (no, both are not "acceptable" - one is correct and I hope to remember which is which) but even if I were to aspire to a "lettered" status (which I don't), I could always enlist an editor. :)

Sure. But I expect of authors who are believed to be great or relevant - and I deny this in the case of both - a higher standard. For example, the original manuscript of Faust, housed in the Goethe-Archiv at Weimar, contains something like less than ten mistakes total; I saw only a few pages on display, but those few pages were impeccable, a masterpiece of tact. I don't expect people to be Goethe, of course, and I myself make more mistakes than correct strokes of the pen. Just saying....proofread, proofread, proofread!

Aye aye, capt'n.... I'll do what I can, but while blogging, I can only promise so much. ;)
