I received an e-mail today with the following paragraph:

"Hi Tony. I am a reporter for Florida Trend who is working on a profile of Orlando lawyer John Morgan. I came across your post about his advertising while doing some background research. I was just curious if you were in a business effected by these lawsuits, had personal dealings with Mr. Morgan, or if you're a lawyer yourself. I'm in the process of interviewing as many people as I can about John Morgan."
Simple typo, or they really don't know the difference between "affected" and "effected" any more?

The latter, I think. You should see some of the stuff written by our local paper's reporters. It's sad, really.

Maybe they think that you're in a business that sprung up as a result of the lawsuits. It happens.

Any more? They never did.

Most, but not all writers would use "anymore" in that context.

(Should I have put a comma after "all"?)

All of ours now say "impacted". I guess it gets them off having to think about it.

Hmmm, problematic.
I first want to move "Most" and "writers" together Most writers, but not all, would use "anymore" in that context. which is still a bit frayed.
What I like best so far is
Most writers, but not all writers, would use "anymore" in that context.
