    Are you able to edit my newest article? For some reason, it's not going through the process. It keeps saying that I'm the one currently editing, but I'm not. Any help? Thanks!

    Melanie,
    Thanks for your edit of this piece
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/655102-uconn-outshoots-sort-of-butler-to-win-ncaa-title-in-battle-of-dogs

    One quibble: I, invariably, submit columns to BR that are strong enough to be placed in any publication.

    When I see a comment such as "grammatical errors throughout", I bristle. Per the editing screen, three words were changed in a 1,000-plus word column; none of the changes were for the better. (Unless you count a comma "upgraded" to a semi-colon when a comma was called for.)

    I feel like many editors feel as if they have to leave that type of remark to justify their work; I'm not just "picking' on you.

    Sorry for the rant, but when I contribute my talents for free and have professional skills beyond what is usually featured here, it's a slap in the face to read that.
