    correctness.  

    I am sick of supposedly educated intelligent people who can't be bothered to proofread,  or even learn basic 3rd grade rules of grammar, spelling and punctuation.

    don't always believe what you think

      According to Strunk & White, that should be spelled-out, not enumerated.

        I remember S & W in its first iteration  being introduced to us somewhere around 1958 or so and actually getting certain concepts about language, usage and grammar.

        OTOH, I have no idea what you allude to, grammatically speaking, with:
        "...spelled out, not enumerated."  I am never done learning.
