Granted, I'm not the sharpest knife in the bulb drawer, and yes, I do make typos and sentence structure mistakes aplenty. Likely, even other mistakes, but if you're like me you have been noticing for a good long time now the glaring mistakes missed (or never looked for in the first place) by proofreaders.
I see it in my local papers, in blogs, and today, I saw a doozie. One of the sites I write paid posts for had quite long description of the opportunity they were promoting. I'm pretty sure the other two people who commented didn't even read beyond the notice that the opp was available, but was closed. That seemed to tick them off a bit, as it did me too to a small extent. But reading through the entire directions brought a loud chuckle from my lips as I read that you could log into the site they wanted you to promote, and could do it "unanimously". Um, what?? Now, I can see misspelling a word, but this was WAY off. "Anonymously" is not something you can misconstrue as unanimously!
Of course, I left a comment! This opp was for a site where they wanted you to encourage people to sign up and write articles as someone who knows how to do something (solve math problems, answer gardening topics, etc.) no one else knows how to do. As a 'new' idea, I think it's redundant what with sites like eHow.com something similar. I've made a whole 9 cents from my eHow article ...
My guess is this other site is going to find it tough going in the market.
Anyway, that's not my point. It just scares me that the coming generations have no idea of recent history, how to do anything but text, or even write in cursive. All that aside, they'll still have to communicate somehow and use the correct words to do it. I'm sure you all will unanimously agree. If so, you can do it anonymously.
