This is the worst I've ever gotten

Postby ImaWriter » Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:14 pm

Just got an approval without rewrite. Went to look at Track Changes. The CE changed something right to something wrong in EVERY SINGLE SECTION, including the Overview and References. I am not kidding. I can be lenient with small mistakes that anyone can miss, but most of these were textbook AP style errors -- simple, common things that anyone familiar with AP style should know.

I was so happy about getting one approved, now I'm just pissed off again.
