I know you’re probably the type of person who spends days and nights searching for spelling errors in phone books, but the rest of us aren’t. This isn’t a term-paper or a thesis. It’s a blog. For most of us, even some of the front pagers, it’s just a side hustle. We have more important things to do than submit every front-page post or comment we write to an English professor for proofreading. Typos happen. Misspellings happen. Run-ons and fragments happen. Get over it.
If you have something valuable to add to the conversation, you’re more than welcome to contribute. But pointing out every little typo or grammatical error that everyone commits just makes you seem petty, and it detracts from the real discussion. I’m not into banning people. So I’m not banning you or putting you in timeout. I’m respectfully asking you to focus on the issues and stop with the grammar lessons.
Calling out Ambernappe on the front page was over the top on my part, and I sincerely apologize for that. I could have and should have addressed my concerns privately with her. Furthermore, not giving her the opportunity to respond on this thread was just stupid and stubborn. I thought about apologizing to her in private, and sort of did in another comment thread. But if I am going to wrongfully call her out in public, then I should at least give her the respect of apologizing in public.
