I was writing in MS Word 2003, and it put a green underline under the word myself, as used below.
Don’t trust people, even myself, trust the code.
I ran the spell and grammar check, but it completed without any errors or suggestions.
If I change the sentence by adding "you should" after the comma, the problem goes away.
Don’t trust people, even myself, you should trust the code.
But that is not the preferred phrasing. What, if any, problems exist?
p.s. The closest I could find to this issue is Microsoft word and confusion about himself/he/him, but it does not help explain why I am right or wrong.
