Axis call for entries

From the Axis CFE, page 1, quote:

"... Whilst my response was extremely sharp and insightful, it was also long
and boring

So, in a nutshell. Its time to celebrate great ideas

That's what AXIS is all about. Nothing more, And definitely nothing less."

(sic)

Is such finely crafted copy representative of the care our industry takes
over the written word? Discuss.

I was hoping this might spark a thread
about punctuation ...

My word wraps fell apart, but.

Never mind your word wraps, the point is valid. Punctuation is, well, important.

Can't blame the NCEA for this one. It's a matter for the Australian authorities. Or, more likely, the person who subbed the AXIS book.

Did you spot the deliberate error? Neither did we.

Let's keep this thread going.

Looks like a simple case of hitting the comma instead of the fullstop. Done it many times myself, lousy typist that I am. Mind you, it should have been picked up in proofing.

What deliberate error?

Just a prophylactic measure in case we made an error.

Oh shit, we may have done it again.

No full stop in the first sentence. Full stop after 'nutshell' instead of a comma. No apostrophe in 'its'. No full stop after 'ideas'. Cap 'A' on 'And' after a comma.

Bloody excellent.

No I'm not really him, but where is he?

MTC produced the CFE - anyone there care to comment?
