What the hell is wrong with people? I just read a story and as always, I read the comments. All of them. 🧐
One reader highlighted the word, “the” only and commented, “Editor fairy suggests adding “Neither” before “the” for clarity.”
What the actual hell? Don’t get me wrong, I’m a card-carrying member of the grammar police, but really? You add nothing to the conversation but felt grammar criticism was necessary?
To be clear, I’m not talking about those who try to be helpful when pointing out errors. We are none of us perfect and mistakes happen, but there’s a better way to do that. A private note or an actual comment about the article and then a note about the error seems more polite than making oneself out to be an outright ass.
Let’s lift each other up rather than knocking each other down.
