I love proofreading. Well, I am fond of it anyway. It's such a chance to look closely at language, to analyze my own assumptions on usage and meaning, and often, I get to look at cool documents that I otherwise wouldn't know about.
I hate proofreading. Well, it's a long and tedious process which tends to get dragged on for longer than it should. It makes me feel like my eyes are bleeding.
The next time I agree to proof a very very long document...I won't do it. Ever. Now let's see if I actually remember this post when I next get a request.
