Is it wrong to JUDGE someone based on their grammatical or spelling errors? Will everyone who makes the same error receive the same verdict? Will the verdict depend on the sterling known qualities or less than sterling known inadequacies of the author? Is judging more helpful or harmful to the one wielding the pen?

It is not always wrong to correct or want to correct someone’s consistent bad grammar or spelling errors. That being said, I have to know my audience. Are they thin skinned and passive aggressive or thicker skinned and appreciative? Do I pick my battles? Have I made them comfortable enough so they understand it is constructive criticism and not a personal attack? Am I being fair and treating everyone the same? Am I being receptive to their constructive criticisms of my work? If it’s social media, does it matter?

Great discussion topic Eric. c:
