Stick with the word limit on letters
It really puzzles me why, in your instructions concerning letters, you ask for a maximum of 350 words yet allow Robin Hordon to have a letter of political tripe that is 15 column inches long be published (“Some alternatives to the war mentality,” page A4, June 20 Herald).
Is it because you agree with the letter, don’t know how to count or what?
Could you please enlighten me?

Editor’s note: It’s because I haven’t consistently counted the words of all letters. I used to run Word Count on each letter and if a letter went over the word limit I emailed it back to the writer and asked him or her to edit it and resubmit it.
I regret not doing that consistently. I will now.
