IMHO surfup, to answer your first posed question....as far as I am aware of, mods are not responsible for making typo corrections in the commentary's
posted with articles in ATSNN postings.
Secondly, I'm failing to understand why
it should be 'a' mods or 'the' mods responsibility to make typo corrections. The responsibility
should rest with the poster. Think of it as submitting a research paper for history class. You write it, you make the corrections, and you submit the
final corrected paper to the teacher for grading. If you did the initial writing and then had someone to check it over for you...the person checks it,
makes suggestions, you correct it and adjust it to what was recommended by the person who checked it, you then turn it in and get a grade of
'F'....whose fault is that you ultimately got the 'F'? You or the person you asked to read over it and make corrections and/or changes?
No, the mods should not be responsible for making typo corrections. Ultimately, this would cause some to think that they could submit crap
commentary's, with no worries, because it will be corrected, right? Sounds like a lazy man's excuse for not taking responsibility for what they are
*edit for typo correction*
