Nice reply. The Giles Coren example below it is poorly written. That sort of takes the fun out of his earlier harangue.

:) My first encounter with a copy editor involved a deadline, some lousy colored pencils where the lead kept breaking (they never let you use red, because they have dibs on that), and in sheer despair, I ran out and had a stamp made: STET.
