I take certain liberties with my friends. I take into account that the majority of my friends have millions and millions of good qualities, but (with a few very rare exceptions), being grammatically perfect (or, in some cases, even grammatically near-perfect) is not hanging out on that list of good traits. Therefore, if one of my friends sends me an e-mail, and the e-mail contains crappy grammar, it's OK.

However. Strangers and their crappy grammar are absolutely fair game and tend to provide excellent fodder for this website.

Some dude sent me an e-mail saying he liked my site, yadda yadda yadda, so why don't I join his blog network? It brings to mind the following questions:

1. If you like my site so much, why on earth did you not screen your e-mails for typos before you sent it to me? It's not like it's any secret what sort of stuff I post here.

2. Do you really think that "this is of curse absolutely free" is going to get you anywhere with me except a snarky little blurb of mockery?
