#RedPen: Proofreading Tool or a Bully?

Earlier this month I wrote a post about Red Pen Syndrome. To keep that discussion going, here are tweets that prove red pen lovers still exist:

@Paige_LA: I truly am a #GrammarSnob…I just can’t help it. I love my #RedPen.

@mrsmeghamby: Pretty sure there is no writing utensil I love more. Hated it in English class, love it now. #redpen

@cwoj620: Writing all of my note cards in #RedPen because it makes me feel more powerful #Nerd

Do you think red ink is offensive, or do you love red pens? For more tips and to talk about grammar and proofreading, join the National Proofreading Day LinkedIn Group! I’ll see you there.
