    Your editing is an embarrassment. Right out of the gate, in the first three lines. I wouldn’t even feel comfortable sharing this article in its current form. Please step it up. Thanks.

    I’m no English major but even I can spot a minimum of 9 grammar/punctuation/syntax errors in the 4 sentences quoted above.

    OP is correct. To forward an embarrassment like this to educated people would merely tar me with the same label of “ignorant and lazy” they would automatically apply mentally to the writer.

    If the author is not a native American English speaker it would be much easier to overlook, but the balance of the article seems to be the product of a native.

    Not intending to be harsh here, I thank you for the information-only trying to say that many readers will discount the information if the presentation is in pidgin…

    Can anyone tell me how to get off Facebook? I don’t want anything to do with this POS! Seems once you are on, you are their prisoner.

    I used to spend an average of 20 minutes on FB. I’ll now use this wasted time doing something more useful. Instead of sitting for twenty minutes of my day doing useless things on FB I’m going to study my Bible for 20 minutes a day instead. Who will join me????????
