In fact it can be even more perverse than that; I saw some research a year or two back which suggested that negative statements work the same way. So after an article saying "Dr Kromm is not a neurosurgeon" many people will still associate the two concepts.

That´s not sinister, only a bit silly, as the question mark is clearly inappropriate.

Yes, but what I want to know is, when did Kromm give up editing and become a neurosurgeon? I don't recall where I read it, but I'm certain that this has happened.

He didn't give up editing. Only... now he edits people's brains.

Precisely. Dr. Kromm allows you to read the first draft, then cracks open your brain and re-arranges your neurons so that you remember reading the corrected, edited version.
