i will not review your manuscript if submit i wouldn't accept it from a sophomore

10-point Arial? No indentations or other indication where paragraphs start other than that the preceding line is shorter? Seemingly not quite double spaced? No way!

(Granted, given other pressing obligations, I'm not sure I would have agreed to review the manuscript anyway.)

That's a fair sentiment, however, nowadays, more often than not, you don't get to see manuscripts before you accept to review them. Or are you not talking about journal reviews?

I worry about this sometimes when I submit an electronic copy with a font other than Times.

I should be better about making a .pdf so I'm not leaving room for any potential "translation" problems with computers.
