It's not torture--it's amusing :-) Some authors are non-native English speakers, so I make allowances. Well, sometimes it is torture--when I enjoy a fanfic that isn't complete, and I'm left hanging for the weekly (or whatever) new chapter.

Anything that's poorly plotted/characterized/annoying is abandoned.

I may know more about the English language than some of these authors (although anyone can make mistakes/typos/bad cut&paste), but I couldn't plot a novel to save my life, or write insightful character development, dialog, or interior monolog for that matter. I'm only creative plot-wise in my dreams.
