“Proofreading is impotent”

Proofreading is important. However, “important” is sometimes spelled “impotant” or “impotent” for jocular reasons.

“Proofreading is very impotent” was posted on Twitter by “Dr. Lila Fontes, mosquito feast” on April 1, 2009. “Proofreading is one of the most impotent things” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on March 26, 2020.

“This just in — Proofreading is Impotant” was posted on the blog Tentative Equinox on April 27, 2009. “A joke about proofreading in the latest @bookoven newsletter: ‘Why Proofreading Is Impotant’” was posted on Twitter by Georges Duverger on April 22, 2010.

Almost a year ago, we posted Attention to detail: the importance of proofreading and other matters of grammer. Even though it remains one of our most commented posts, as the title of this post elludes to, some out there are still lacking the power to effectively proofread.
