Hello again loyal reader.
It has been some weeks now since our little campaign came into being, yet it feels already feel a saga unto itself. Doubtless, little has changed in the bowels of cyberspace, the same cretins persevere in their perversions of English, self-assured in their own ignorance. “Lol” and emoticons becoming increasingly fundamental in imbuing the primitive prose of the slothful with some bare iota of meaning.
But, as they say, Rome was not built in a day. If this campaign ever reaches fruition, it will be a day at a time. And the same might be said for all us students of the English language, reading more, writing more and taking care with our spelling and syntax. There is, unfortunately, no eureka moment waiting to spring upon us, no linguistic nirvana waiting to dawn upon the vigilant. But I urge all of you, those who are fortunate enough to perceive the worth and beauty in language, DO pursue the path of discipline. Sloth and ignorance only serves to sap the joy from life and literature, and every effort you make towards a better understanding of English will repay itself threefold. This campaign is as much about our individual battles, as it is about the woeful status quo at a broader level.
