Well Rick I think this is a great post. Really! I was utterly amused by this: For example, if you spot a mistake in, say, a blog post, do you leap to your keyboard to point out what an idiot the writer must be? I spotted this kind of behavior for a long time and always told to people I know that the internet it's not an EXCLUSSIVELY ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT so it's no harm if someone mispells a word or two or ten For all we know the internet is in his infancy yet; you think that the first of our species on this planet behaved as they should? Even now they don't Well it's the same with the internet. I really spot this kind of neanderthalian behavior even on me sometimes so ... When enough time will pass there will be some etiquette Anyway, I hope you'll read this. I definitely agree. Everybody makes mistakes and just because a tech journalist makes a few small spelling errors or doesn't make sense in a sentence, doesn't mean you can take it out on him. Think about top sporting legends. They all made mistakes. The articles that you find on PCWorld are still much better than what you would type on Facebook, with the lowercase 'I' and the single letter 'u' rather than 'you'
you know i really wanted to chime in here so that i could agree with you but regrettably it pain's me to have to point out your mistake because i've gone back over every second of my life and even asked my mother and she did confirm it. Seems as though i guess despite the errors in this text i'm writing i have never been wrong or made a mistake. it's real easy anytime it turns out an event puts that in question simply deny it or refuse to agree it even exist and if all else fails blame on someone else.going on 48 years and perfect record still in tact!
