Does anyone at Townhall.com proof read articles before they are posted? It seems that less than 50% of the readers know the difference between "lose" and "loose." Any professional author should be embarrassed to misspell "lose" in an article.
The one I HATE even worse is flipping “then/than”. I’ve seen it in newspaper articles, professionally type set novels, instruction sheets, magazines, and God knows where else. Then is a time; than is a choice. How effing hard is that?
knot many profesionalls hear.
Did you ever see the study that people with superior brains can read meanings of words with only the first and last letters correct?
Like we don’t have more to worry about than spelling....What about important things like punctuation?? :-)
