Criticisms about grammar are unpleasant, but someone ought to mention WoWInsider's editing. Almost every author on this site needs a little instruction. The above article is painful to read, and, worse, some of the content is bewildering:"The content on the forums is largely player driver, the text of there is usually white.""I have to admit, people violate these rules and get away with it, but I'd recommend it.""Each class, realm, and battlegroup also has an their own boards."I recommend The Elements of Style, by Strunk and White. This book of grammar and style is as authoritive as it is brief.

Authoritative. See? I need an editor, too.

Get used to it. God bless her, but Amanda's posts are usually inundated with typographical errors, more so than any other Blogger I've seen on this site.

Agreed. Please proof read your blogs, bloggers. And there seems to be much more mangled text of late. Way too much.It detracts from the content. I tend to get hung up on what you are trying to say, give up and just move on to the next blog.

And please pay attention to punctuation. I just gave up reading new "he said, she said" because I got tired of figuring out where the invisible commas were.
