The real question is if you have a choice between say proof-reading or scenarios (both of which cost money to make in some form), what would people choose?

I have an entire gaming shelf full of books from 20'ish years of gaming that suggests the latter and not the former :-)

POLL DESCRIPTION

Bashing grammar Nazism targeting casually-written prose such as blogs is what it is, but if someone is taking money for something they wrote, that is quite another beast.

I've just purchased the second edition of an otherwise-excellent ruleset whose first was criticized around the traps for sloppy grammar and spelling errors, and I am saddened to see that the new version is no better. Worse, it's not really new it's several years old and still uncorrected.

There is another popular author I cannot bring myself to buy rules from because the website promoting the rules consistently uses bad habits any writer would be aware of.

So, do you loath rules with poor grammar?
