Hence, logging off and getting on with writing. You finally figured out the way to promote proper grammar and writing within the US education system! Troll the webs for erroneous comment mistakes and verbally stake your victims to the ground with your superior use of the English language!
You are really making a difference in this world. My children call me a grammar Nazi, and any misused word jerks me right out of that willing suspension of disbelief. That might be what happened. BTW, youse guys—usage ought to be correct in narrative, but the dialogue absolutely cannot be perfect. They sound AS IF manufactured twits. And try not to be so hard on each other. And even ignorance is forgivable.
I look forward to hearing from you. Writing is hard work. As writers we must remember this and command top dollar for the time and effort put into the art of creation on any level, whether it be essay, short story, or novella.
Everyone is so triggered. Just smile and wave. She holds no significance in your life. As a proofreader I can agree with the sentiment, but you have to get it right yourself. And the high-handed tone is, yes, too much. Think before you judge. It was a comment for goodness sake. Face it, auto correct.. Please fell free to point out my mistakes it is makes you happy. I was about to have a stroke before I read your reply.
Although I do not agree with your views, I could not very well disagree with them either. My point…There is a correct manner in which to speak to others which is polite and thoughtful, and you will be more than likely to get your point across in a more favorable fashion. We all make mistakes, obviously even you.. Auto incorrect may be the cause of such errors. So next time perhaps you should seriously take into consideration, proof reading your own comments…Just a thought…. You talk a big game for someone simply commenting on a blog post.
If you were in fact such a well educated and highly adorn writer, you would be doing just that, writing. Not belittling someone who was asking a simple question. So keep to yourself.

Hello Bamidele, How does writing for magazines and blogs work?
Martha, with all due respect, get your head out of your butt. Snobbery is dull, no matter how well-written it is.
Dear All, I have read all the comments and I can find one or two typos or other grammatical error in each of the comments, including mine if you look properly. Well, this makes it perfect.
This is absolutely how it should be. Either from the teacher, the pupil or the writer or the editor, you may find one or two errors, and it is just fine. This thread has served me well this evening; a much appreciated distraction from real-world events. We all need acceptance and validation at times and not only for parking.

It truly has nothing to do with who you are or where you are from. The best advice I can give you is to try to make some friends online you can communicate with regularly to learn how native speakers use the language.
