CRIMES AGAINST TYPOGRAPHY: Vertical or Horizontal Scaling | Dumb Quotes | Pseudo Italics | Rated R

THE CRIME:
Dumb quotes

HOW TO PLAY
Destroy the evil hatch marks (a.k.a. dumb quotes) and preserve the good quotation marks (a.k.a. curly quotes).

WHY TO PLAY
Quotation marks consist of distinct characters for opening and closing a quoted passage. Hatch marks consist of a single set of vertical strokes. The only proper use for hatch marks is to indicate inches and feet (5'2").
