I just finished reading two completely different articles from two vastly different websites. One of those, I can go from reading an article about a video game to something more politically based without batting an eye. Both had spelling and grammatical errors in them. What happened to proofreading or at least an editor reading over the piece before it is published?
Neither one was a lengthy article. I finished each one in under a minute even with a pause at each error. Longer works, heaven only knows how often I’ve read and reread the same parts of my book and still missed them because my brain fixes it automatically. Still try to find them though.
I just find it hard to take articles seriously that have blatant errors like the ones in the articles I read. It was the same reason I stopped reading The Legend of Drizzt series I forget how many books in. After a while, the errors just drove me mad.
