"See Graf" greatest hits

Postby editcopyeditors » Sun Jan 15, 2012 7:36 pm

"this article perfectly illustrates why every writer should surf the title before writing it."

"Do not continually repeat the same keyword in the copy of an article or in the Key Concepts section solely in an effort to improve the article's search value. For instance, including the keyword "buttered popcorn" once will suffice; repeating it for the sake of repeating it will not improve the search value of the article."

See graf is an idiot. I would love to post its notes. Perhaps I will one day. It's the only idiot at TB who still wants us to tell the reader how to open a file.

I've never gotten see graf. If I did then I'd probably send in the rewrite with a note that says 'what the fuck is a graf?'

Maybe he's a zoo enthusiast and wants you to see a giraffe.

That'd be nice, actually. See giraffe? Don't mind if I do.

What's a graf? What's a fuckin' graf?! I'll show you a graf right the fuck now!

HERE, MOFOS: https://www.google.com/search?q=graf+or ... 00&bih=756

They write songs about cheesy '80s and '90s movies, like Aliens and shit. With funny clips. Very hipster. Look at those massive black ear plugs. LOOK AT THEM!!!

Or it could also be, as Google kindly suggested, that the term "graf" is an editorial shorthand term for "paragraph." By the way, that sounds totally douchey.

I decided to man up and defend myself against skin graft:

I disagree with you. I don't believe re-writing the article to your specification is in mine or Demand's best interest.

Additionally, I don't appreciate the patronizing, belittling tone you used to address my interpretation of the article. Disagreements are inevitable in editorial situations like this, but you don't need to be rude or talk down to me. I intend to leave feedback RE: your tone after you approve or reject this article.

Thank you.
