writing.pngI love this post from Lifehack. I care about the language, even though a lot of people don’t anymore. That’s why they say “myself” when they mean “me” and “yourself” when they mean “you” – perhaps my top pet peeve besides sloppy spelling in blog posts. (God I hope this one has no spelling errors.)
Please, please, please read why spellcheck is not your friend:

That’s because spellcheck “is in actuality the product of a plot between Bill Gates, Richard Stallman, and Kim Jong Il, who are working together to undermine America’s public image in preparation for a non-violent overthrow of our country and our way of life.”

As the post says, “There is no easy remedy for these kinds of mistake – you just have to learn not to make them.” Please start today.
