just read some of the replys amd now I am wondering where else has another writen form of English? I know UK & america are different but outside of UK & america does everyone use actual English for writing (on about spelling and grammar) although there are many forms of english such as Scotish which is a seperate spoken language.

PS my spelling is going to go to pot for a while as I don't have a auto-checker for the internet on this new system.


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Greetings Fede,

Just a quick note to let you know I hadn't forgotten that you've reviewed Buddhism For The Modern Skeptic.

:anjali:

I've forwarded it off to my work and hope to review the changes during a break shortly.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Fede,

I'm 2 chapters away from completing my first book - approx. 150 pages. There's no telling when (or if) I'll ever finish, but when I do I'd be happy to send it your way...but only if you agree to let me pay you for your work. Proofing is alway a bit more fun that way. :smile:

I'd be very happy to proofread your book.
I would not dream of accepting any remuneration from you.
Tell you what, whenever I post, just agree with everything I say, and bow to my superior knowledge, how's that? :tongue: :jumping:

Let me know when I can be of use.
Very happy to help.....

YES PLEASE!!

Please send it to my e-mail address:

[email protected]

I will need it in workable (word) format.....

Fire away!

It goes without saying that if you have deadlines, or restrictions, it's important I am made aware of these at the time you submit your work for proofing, together with lingual/language preference (USA/UK English)....

Greetings Fede,

Thanks for this... I've now gone through the marked-up document and adjusted things in my original document to reflect your input.

Many merits to you! :clap:

Now to find somewhere good to publish it online :P
