You may now analyze how I break these rules routinely and ironically, considering the topic at hand, and wonder how I can have anything to say about writing when, right there in the fourth paragraph, I did willfully violate gerund/semi-deponent agreement.
In response to your query, allow me to make a loud farting noise. I know that my grammar isn’t perfect. Sometimes this is intentional, but sometimes I’m just careless or ignorant. I feel that this ought to bother me, but it doesn’t. There are lots of people who write very well, without perfect grammar; and there are lots more people whose grammar is impeccable, but whose writing stinks. So, I win.
I’d also like to add: You MONSTER! Don’t you know I’m PREGNANT?
