We want to keep the author’s writing style and his or her originality to remain. In general, virtually every word of your report will be printed verbatim.When you submit your scribe we will publish it as is with these few exceptions:
Prosecutable slander will be deleted, a high hurdle which we have yet to reach, but you are very clever and I know one of you will find a way to get there.
We will tinker with the format of your report to conform to our style guide – these are things like correcting punctuation errors and misspelled words, unless obviously intended, minor syntax corrections, bold face and capitalizing all hash names, bolding and\or italicizing clever phrases, quoting and italicizing quotes.
We have no objection coarse or vulgar language, much as in our circle.
There are a very few words words which everyone knows are unacceptable even in impolite society. which we will delete or substitute an equally offensive but less socially hurtful.
We have published scribes written in crayon. Come on hashers, just ask us we’ll lend you a pen.
