Hey, gotta question concerning direct quotes. I am currently working on a
proposal where I am quoting specific questions outlined in the RFP. These
questions often (and I am being nice) contain grammatical mistakes. Do I
correct these mistakes in my quotations or leave them as is? Initially, my
knee-jerk grammar fingers fixed the problems, but then I thought, that's
really not a quote then is it? Perhaps I am making much ado about nothing.

Any help would be much appreciated.
