I am NOT SORRY you wrote and posted this! As a freelance editor, I have an extreme fear of the Unknown Typo, the piece of thread that does not lie flat with the fabric of the rest of the manuscript. Yet I love the creativity that is allowed to an editor — such as the freedom to substitute the word “intercourse” for “fuck.” Because doing that kind of thing is just fun (on a few separate levels). As an editor, it is very possible to “not give a fuck” but “giving an intercourse” is part of the job for which there is no Workmen’s Compensation for ‘script transmitted diseases or STDs.
