I've been unable to sleep these past few days. In the absence of rest I've been carousing the internet. I've noticed a lot of sites having news stories filled with simple grammar mistakes. Normally the mistakes are so simple that i ignored them and kept on reading. Lately though the amount of mistakes has risen and it is really starting to bother me. I feel there is no reason for these simple mistakes to be present. It is the journalists job to proof-read their articles because they are the most frequent users of the English language. I really only want one thing. I want Giant Bomb to be the one site without these mistakes. This would earn more respect from me to a site that i already respect the most. Example: Taken from the uDraw article by Patrick Klepek "At aged two and four this proved to be the best game from our selection and he kids happily took turns and played with it,". Now to be honest, he was quoting another person there. My problem is simply adding a "t" to "he" would of been easy and stuck out even though i was enjoying the article. I wouldn't of normally been bothered by this if i had not kept reading and found another mistake in the next sentence. Same article:"In fact they have been playing at at every opportunity since." This has been happening a lot recently at Giant Bomb and even fellow site Tested. Please correctly proof read so these sites can continue being the best sites on the internet.
[Update 2/24/12] There has been one misunderstanding. I'm talking about a lot of small mistakes happening that can easily be fixed. I'm not really talking about overall grammar. As some of y'all have pointed out "Please correct you're typos" would of been a better title. There are a lot of typos happening on the internet that ruin the flow of the articles.
