An article titled by one of my favorite words has a graphic with proofreader’s marks. I am so in love.
Zipthwung — I can testify, as a longtime fan — is a poet and a mystic. Maybe he means “if.” Dude thinks that way. Oh, but there’s more. Before quoting him, should I have determined his real name? Gender? Profession? Home address?
Week after week, these questions dog me. Sometimes I opt to copy words and paste them into the text of a column — to quote verbatim. I treat message-board words as if they had been written in books, articles, brochures or press releases. Is that what zipthwung wants? Should I care?
Thanks to Brandon for this one.
