Recently I saw a tweet that broke my copyediting heart:
This comment is a perfect illustration of why many people fear copy editors.
Writers, journalists, and others think copy editors are too strict, too critical, too literal. …
When I became aware of how many editors offer combo line and copy edits, I was aghast.
Because combo line and copy edits are the worst. And I am suspicious of editors who tout them as a quality offering.
This is a controversial opinion, I know.
