OMG! Your so right, it is annoying!
Actually, they did. There's hardly any money in the newspaper/magazine/publishing industry to pay for good reporters, much less proofreaders and copyeditors, and it shows.I suspected I wasn't the only one frustrated with the loss of basic spelling and grammar skills in our culture. The really sad thing is that newspapers used to catch this sort of thing through proofreading. In recent years, I'm seeing many errors like this in print that would have been caught before going to press. Did they fire all the proofreaders?
I too hate to be "that guy", but you misplaced a comma yourself, Vando. ;)
I hate when people say "I could care less" when they mean the opposite.
And don't forget the "peddles" or "petals" to make the bike go, as opposed to "breaks" that make it stop (abruptly).
