I hate proofreaders. They screwed up my LWP book; then when I was doing my RTF book I said "now don't you screw this one up!" and specified exactly how they should NOT screw it up; and they took that as a dare, and did exactly what I said not to do.
If (when) I am appointed kommissar of the North American Sektor of Earth, I will make vaccination against horrible diseases free and compulsory for everyone, except proofreaders; the proofreaders will actually be given the horrible diseases that everyone else has the vaccinations against. I'm even thinking of bringing back smallpox just for them.
Pour encourager les autres.
«Ian Fleming's title You Only Live Twice was not copy-edited to You Live Only Twice. Why not? Because he knows how to write, and he didn't let an idiot copy-editor change his writing into mush, that's why.»
