I just saw this, and wanted to say thank you!
Whenever I see someone ripping down the form rather than the content of someone else's writing, I feel embarrassed for them
, not the target of
their (often grammatically flawed
If you dismiss a post out of distaste over someone's use of a comma, or an absence of proper paragraphs, or some other petty detail, you are going to
miss a lot
of interesting content. I feel, also, that the way a person breaks grammatical conventions adds a lot of flavor to their writing.
It never occurred to me that the presence of grammar Nazis here would deter people from posting out of fear of ridicule, but I bet you're right.
That's a complete bummer, and I bet we're all a little poorer for not being able to read what they'd write.
