As a professional educator and writer my principal editing roles are fixing grammar, punctuation and style problems in articles. I believe that articles should be written in a straightforward and modern English style (not in a convoluted and outdated 19th century style as so many articles sadly are). I will take strong action against the misuse of articles for any kinds of hype, advertising, slander and blatant bias. I do not suffer fools gladly and have a low tolerance for the many editors who frequently misuse articles for promoting their personal opinions or their uncritical following of belief systems. I do not make many editing mistakes but I am always happy to have any mistakes corrected if done politely and with reference to the Manual of Style instead of merely personal preference.
