Don't Mess with the Language

A very wise writing teacher once said something to the effect that you should always follow the rules of grammar ... except when you shouldn't. The trick is knowing when you shouldn't. So, unless you have a very good reason to break the rules of grammar, don't. Poorly written copy can really effect your authoritative position - I know this first hand because I have dyslexia. If I'm not very careful ... and even sometimes when I am ... bad grammar and spelling mistakes get past me. And they have, on several occasions, cost me a job or promotion.
