    Default Re: Please help - "not be", "not to be" and "not being"

    Welcome to the forums.
    Are you open to a complete rewrite?

    You must follow these rules for your application to be considered.
    We will consider your application only if all the above rules are followed.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
