I don’t deduct points for silly spelling and magical connect-o-plex sentences. Maybe I should. In many alternate universes I am better at this, and can teach remedial English for native English speakers and still have time for the subject I was actually hired to teach. Sometimes in this universe I start to correct all the errors for free, but I get overwhelmed too quickly to be consistent about it. And sometimes in my dangerous elitism I just find certain mistakes too charming to tamper with.
