Comma Splices Come Again No More 

To the "Testy Copy Editors":

The post quoted on your message board is here. (Spot the glaring typo!)

I was essentially making the same point as "catwoman":
God forbid we treat the readers as people. I've long stopped thinking that trained journalists have a right to be insulated from those they allegedly serve.

But, you know, with sarcasm and stuff.

Now, though, I'm really very sorry that I called you guys elitist, and to make it up to you, I will personally call all of your papers and commend them on how wonderfully egalitarian the spelling, grammar, and punctuation are today.

In penance, I shall cleanse my archives of adverbs whilst reconciling my subjects and verbs.
