Dear Anonymous Referee

Dear Anonymous Conference Referee,

Thank you very much for pointing out the two grammatical/spelling errors in my most recent conference submission. I wholeheartedly agree that grammatical errors reflect poorly on a paper and demonstrate a degree of sloppiness. I appreciate your attention to detail in this matter.

However, may I suggest that in the future, if you are going to point out someone's grammatical and spelling errors, that you check your own response for grammatical and spelling errors as well. It is generally bad form when your response contains more grammatical/spelling errors than the paper you are critiquing.

Have a nice day!

Cordially,
Jane

Oh boy. Was the paper at least accepted?

If a reviewer comments on spelling if there are only 2 errors is s/he actually looking at the big picture?

Love your response. Don't you wish you could actually send it?

GM, the paper was accepted. For some reason, I got the acceptance notice a few days before I got the actual reviews. Profgrrrl, the rest of the review was similarly unhelpful, so yeah, I think the reviewer missed the point too. :) Cheeky, if you think this is funny, you should see the response I didn't send to the journal editors with my last "revise and resumit" article...hee hee!
