Please take your red pencil to the mote in your own eye ^. Plus, Robert, MeanJoePhaser and NTRPRZ on Page 1... And you clearly don't hate to be a stickler.

Sorry, I'm not trying to offend, honest. And you're probably right, I don't usually hate to be a stickler --it's just the way I am-- except when it bothers others. I personally just think that, in story-in-the-round threads like this, the use of quotation marks would help clarify to all the participants when characters start and stop talking, thus making continuity between posts a bit smoother.

Daneel, I have a B.A. in Journalism and lived by the AP stylebook and Harbrace college handbook for a few years.

As for quoting my own post, I'm not quite sure which post you're referring to, but if I've made a spelling or grammar mistake somewhere, by all means, point it out! I think if I've made one thing clear, it's that I like to make sure the sentences I write are error-free. )

Daneel, I meant putting your post in quotes, since it was someone speaking. They still sound like someone speaking, but are not in quotes. So, I don't get you.
