Thank you very much for the feedback, EssaySnark.
While we (the Brave Supplicants) sometimes have a difficult time digesting your snarky comments (ps-they’re not really that snarky), they’re always extremely helpful, so I’m extremely appreciative that you chose to review my work.

Maybe, one day, I’ll even become a… *gasp* …paying customer!
To those of you with a bit more spare change, I’d highly recommend his/her services. I’ve been following this blog for a while now and think that the quality is top notch.
