I've been noticing this a lot lately, in the review room and also on the Short Story Competition, that there are spelling/grammar/punctuation errors all over the place. I'm not trying to sound like a snob, because we do make mistakes and not everyone has great grammar (myself included). I just feel like it is a lack of respect from the writer to the reader. It is MUCH harder to read a story when it is hasn't been edited at all. A simple read-through and quick edit before posting would make a huge difference. And in my opinion, simply saying that you know it needs to be edited for spelling/grammer is not enough. If you don't have the patience to go through it yourself, why should anybody else even read it? Sorry - had to get that off my chest.
