“Please, for the love of God, proofread. A typo we can understand, but a complete and utter lack of the basic tenets of grammar is an affront to human decency.”
I stole this from Jersey Devil Press’s submission guidelines <http://www.jerseydevilpress.com/submissions/>. It made me chuckle and nod my head in understanding. I have received sample reviews from potential reviewers so full of grammar mistakes and typos it was horrible. If I had been the author and was submitting something like that for publication and as proof of my ability, I would be ashamed.
