    Yes.  Of course.

    It should. Out of respect for the language.

    Spelling and grammar is really the only thing that counts in the final analysis.

    Always!  I just sent an email to a website I visit regularly about the misspelling and language errors in their articles.  There is no excuse.  It's obvious they use voice-reco software.  That's fine if you have editors which they obviously do not.  One of the most misused pair of words is then/than.  I am floored at the prevalence of misuse, not just on that site but everywhere both spoken and written.

    You don't see the understood word "both" between "grammar" a "count" apparently---that's why grammar is art as well as science.

    But hey, I took art appreciation and finally dropped the course---I see the value, but it's still not my bag.

    Which makes it plural, and that's why it's "do" instead of "does." Art and science, done.

    Neither spelling nor grammar count.  It is only numbers that do the counting.

    Here's three numbers--- 1, 27, & 35.

    I'm waiting---when do they start counting?
