Another clarification

The previous rant wasn't specifically about any particular job or author. No, no, it was about all jobs and authors.

Just to even things up a little, there's plenty to rant about with editors too - making too many changes just for the sake of making changes, changing the meaning of what's written, not knowing the conventions of the subject area, introducing their own preferences in place of the author's, being far too nit-picky about inconsequential things, not respecting the author's voice. The list goes on.
