The Lazy Writer's Guide To Grammar... Microsoft Word, says this article in the Arts Telegraph:

"If I am at all typical, the generation of novelists that grew up using computers didn't study English grammar at school (I did study some French grammar, in the sense that I slept through the classes). If my teachers never corrected my grammar, why on earth should I listen to the advice of a teenage geek programmer from Microsoft? Yet I do."


  • Especially for those who write in indianisms. But that's why MS Word's best option is "Ignore All."
    Bam! I sock 'em so hard.
