“Proper copyeditors are almost without exception better-educated and more technically skilled in the use of the language than you. They also don’t work in their underwear in a pit of empty Red Bull cans. This is the point in the book where the supremacy of the author’s voice begins to matter not a single bit, because hard-working people with actual jobs are trying to save you from your own stupidity. A copyeditor isn’t the enemy. A copyeditor is your own paid Jiminy Cricket, asking you if you really want to stick your unprotected cock in that beehive.
(No, you really don’t.)”
