Since we are doing definitons…
People who take 10 minutes out of their lives to tell you that you misspelled a word. GET OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS! Seriously. Plus why would you need to be basically anonymous to do that? Its not like you’re saying “Lindsay you're fat and ugly and your husband looks like a girl” Which would warrant an anonymous name. Definitions? Seriously don’t be a pansy.
ps. the post is over a year old… NO ONE CARES.
OK, I will readily admit that I am persnickety about grammar and spelling. I am an English dork and I have friends and family who send me their written materials so that I might give a quick editorial check before they turn in their essay or fire off an email. I read the original post and it is possible that I developed a small facial tic every time I came to the word plead instead of pleat.
Here's the thing though... I knew what the blogger meant.
In a situation like this, why post a snarky, rather spiteful comment? If the Hater really wanted to correct that spelling error, the way to do it is a direct email to Lindsey. If someone had spinach in their teeth, the proper thing to do is discreetly pull them aside and let them know... Not grab a megaphone and shout it across the room at a dinner party.
It just goes to show that while the Hater might know the difference between plead and pleat, they don't know the difference between honey and vinegar, and which one is the best for catching flies.
What do you say?
