    True. ::looks sheepish:: I forgot to spell check while typing fast. That, and I am not putting out a finished product for a fee.

    To bad I don't have a ipad or a mac or I would jump on this. Any idea if this sort of thing is what will be coming out on the new revised weekly white dwarf?

    I would say this is the key point- all it would take is for them to hire one pedantic spelling/grammar nerd and get them to proof read everything a couple of times. Doesn't seem hugely difficult to me.

    Are these dataslates not put out by Black Library, which as far as i can tell publishes books. One would then assume they have someone that actually does check spelling and grammar. Unless this person never gets to do his job on these things.

    From my experience with Black Library books even if they do have some people who proof read everything they still miss the odd mistake from time to time.
