It seems like it's difficult to find an editor with a gentle hand and an open mind. At my last place of work, any time I needed a vacation they would call in one or another temp editor. One was addicted to inserting "that" wherever possible, another labored under antiquated comma usage, etc. I could identify who they'd contracted by the nature of the work I had to undo when I returned. It was heartbreaking to see an editor strip the voice out of our talented copywriters, rather than touch up a line or two or just ask some pertinent questions.
