    Search engines do not like spelling mistakes. You do not look good to your readers if you have lots of mistakes. Personally, i have to proofread every paragraph as i write

    It was painful to watch, cause it flowed so slow, but i do’t blame the site for it, I blame my network. It would have been a great asset, but unfortunely I didn’t have the pleasure to hear the narrator.

    Michael,
    I enjoy your useful presentations.

    P.S. the elevator background music is an unnecessary, annoying distraction.

    I still don’t get why “passive voice” gets flagged so much.

    Can someone explain to me why when you download the plugin, you’re not actually getting the software, just an interface to it? (I don’t mind, I’m just wondering what the reasoning behind this is). Thanks.

      To make After the Deadline smarter, a lot (really, a *lot*) of data is collected. AtD works by using contexts and detailed language models.

      It’s far easier and more effective for AtD to store that information and provide it to you as a service.
