As a proofreader, there really aren’t too many aspects of the profession that I can debate. Grammar and spelling rules exist for a reason; you memorize them and then apply them in your work. It’s pretty cut and dry. But every so often, an issue pops up that gets people in my line of work fired up, draw lines in the sand, and make impassioned defenses for their beliefs.
