One of the more dispiriting realisations I've had today (which has otherwise been quite a good one) is that almost every time I look over anything I've writing in the past, I discover some typo or grammar error I've made, and I'm a stickler for avoiding such things. I know better, but I've had to accept that I'm blind to these things when proof reading. Sigh.
@menn0 those are useful suggestions... I guess, if I'm honest with myself, the problem hasn't bad enough yet for me to really change my behaviour :) - ideally, if it's really important, I try to get folks who didn't know what I *meant* to say to look it over... Luckily, I do a lot of editing for others, so I have a few favours I can call :)
@menn0 hasn't *been* bad enough... Now this is getting funny.
