You fail to understand why they are wrong in your writing.

1. You should use quotation mark for "I ain't poor".
2. You should italize the name of the journal or use quotation mark.
3. "Methinks" should be capitalised.
4. "Which means" is wrong.

What's more, you pick at Robert who shouldn't use "who" which is acceptable in informal American English.

You argue that an essay shouldn't use that. Then, why do you keep using 'smiley' in your posts?

The post of Robert is not an essay. You intentionally pick at him.
