Re: What's with Author X's editor, man?

Do you feel it's the editor's responsibility to clean up a messy manuscript, or does the author have some responsibility to make sure it's as clean as they can make it beforehand? If there are incidences of overused punctuation or continuity errors, is it more the fault of the author or the editor?...
