(by the editor)
At Bodwyn Wook we do indeed edit comments, at least in these terms:
1) We are pretty much down on fuck , or ‘fuck’ for that matter at all, as most usage of this is, indeed, sub- if not actually illiterate and, well, pretty much “fucked up”.
2) Also, we do try for some consistency in spelling and grammar, although this can and does vary as between “written American” and ‘proper English’ usage, depending on who is handling the in-bound traffic.
If, indeed, we do not ‘clean up’ your text, be sure this is indeed a studied gesture of contempt and that we positively do want to see you stand revealed by your own bad writing as a fool and a half-wit.
In the case of submittors for whom English is a second language, we are of course inclined to go easy on these, and to go simply for clarity in the case of any ambiguities; this, however, is intended for good manners and not scorn: not always, of course, but as rule the two categories are distinct.
