I will clarify for the list that it was not I who appointed you
"Grammar Policewoman" for the listÿÿI believe you are

I'm assuming you are trying to be helpful, rather than just trying to
be a pain in the ass... correct?  I mean, I would probably know it if
you were trying to be a pain in the ass.

Judy, I don't know what I would do without you. I have a feeling that
no-one else really gives a S**t about my grammar.  So, your attention
really does comfort me.  I will sleep easy tonight knowing that once
you receive this bit of prose you will ply your trade and save me
from myself again.
FWIW, my use of the English language is often more than a bit lazy (I blame it on experiments conducted by educators in the 1960's - Robert's series - we were a test school). That said, Judy is an astute editor and would probably proofread circles around you, Mark. I must admit I have sometimes been irritated when Judy has corrected my use of the language (after all - everyone knows what I mean), but often, on reflection, I have realized that I have not clearly pointed to my subject or the action(s) I meant to highlight. Not a bad thing.
