I thought she made the corrections her self but now I understand.

It doesn`t really make sense seeing as how the corrections are in pen not in computer ink because anyone passing by reading it would think that someone else corrected that and wouldn`t think she did it on purpose.

Not to ruin the joke, but I am fairly sure she did the correction marks purposefully on her own poster to demonstrate what she was talking about.

I`m with you, keatonatron. I was sitting here wondering what in the heck I was missing as the flyer made perfect sense to me, too. Then I realized, "OH! It`s as if someone *else* has come up and corrected the flyer." Which, of course, if the "mistakes" weren`t only on the bolded words right smack in the center of the flyer, obviously put there as examples, I`d have understood.

Maybe the owner of the flyer can give classes in logic, too? :-)

"Did no one else realize that this is on purpose? She printed the master with mistakes, added corrections by hand, and then copied it to make multiple fliers to pass around. It`s to give examples of what she corrects and how."

I think the people who couldn`t figure this out are the ones that need her services the most. lol

Just pick up the average novel these days; I find about 1 error every 10-15 pages on average.

PS, its "proofread" , "proofreader" and "people`s". Also, there should be a comma after "free" :-)

I don`t know about you guys but this looks like it`s done on purpose by the one advertising this. Spelling error at "speling", punctuation error after "punctuation" and the bad word choice at "word use" whilst the rest is correct.

This is true, Davy... but it doesn`t have to be that way.

If you look the right places and play the right cards (and with a career like yours this is all totally reasonable) she`ll be just fine.

Meh. Beats digging up 10,000 year old fossils and spinning a random number generator to determine their age.

What`s sad is that someone with a Masters degree has has to whore themselves out to get a few pennies proofreading documents which any literate individual with a basic High School education should be able to do.

I don`t mean to be a Euro-peon, but one of the cons of making the decision to move my family from Europe to North America was the knowledge that my daughter would receive a relatively poor education.

I`m hoping that the benefits will offset the detractions.

[quote]The comma after "I am from the United States" is unnecessary, but Grammatically correct as it separates two independent clauses.[/quote]
Actually, it is incorrect because the second clause is NOT independent since it does not have its own subject. Had the second clause been "and I have just earned my Master`s Degree," that would have made it an independent clause requiring a comma.

Further, neither "Native" nor "Grammatically" need be capitalized; there should be an "and" between "punctuation" and "word"; and there should be a period after "use."

Therefore, if you follow the "Language is a static entity with fixed rules" school, then it IS necessary. It can be dispensed with only if you allow that language is an ever-changing living thing; in which case, no particular spelling, or punctuation, is specifically valid.

vv Lionhart mate, you`d be amazed and saddened at what subjects you can get a degree in these days... there`s even a degree dedicated to training you for a future of stacking shelves at Walmart. It`s called an `Arts` degree. Arts.

Master`s Degree in what? English? Writing? If so than clearly proves my point that just because you spent years in college for something doesn`t always mean you are good at it. I mean Stephanie Meyer has a degree in English literature.

Most of this is questionable of whether it is interesting advertisement or terrible failure.

I think the thing that makes the difference is that `native` is capitalized.
