"The edges of the day" <3
In slight defense of her, everyone shares the same cheesy quotes, rarely attributing them correctly. BUT she should not sign her name at the bottom as if they are her own quotes. That's deceptive, at the least.
Years ago a big scary mommy blog that I used to like posted the same status that I had posted 2 days earlier very nearly word for word, and got way more attention than I had of course.
I see stuff like this all the time-- people retyping a meme or funny quote in a new font, watermarking it, and posting it as their own-- and it sucks.
YES! I just had this discussion with someone at work. It doesn't make you look more professional; it makes you look out of touch.
(Although I resent the "older than 37" claim. I'm 38 and haven't used a double space in at least 10 years (unless required by a client's (outdated) style guide).)

Haha, I love it!
"As they say, one man's trash is another's fully formed, multi-platform, through-the-line, potentially award-winning campaign."
I have a couple things to say about this:
1. No, Y-O-U-apostrophe-R-E a jerk!
2. Sorry, it's my job to point out others' errors (which, admittedly, feeds my jerky soul).
3. Meh, it's not the worst I've ever been called.
This is good. 15 (yikes) years ago, I had a Writing for the Web class. There's a lot more to thin about than the words (despite that many of these things weren't even realities at that time!).
Word nerds-- this is super cool
