Calling all editors!

I kid. I am a kidder. I’m not calling all editors, just calling out the editor for the Yahoo! front page who decided that cellphone was a word here:

fp internet cellphone

but it wasn’t a word over here:

fp cell phone

What’s so hard about checking the spelling in a dictionary, such as the American Heritage Dictionary, which is actually part of the Yahoo! network? If this is a word that’s in transition, somewhere in limbo between one word and two, then just make a decision: Pick one way to spell it and stick to it. And make sure others stick to it, too.

    Yahoo! posted an instant classic today called “Bad Boys And Gals Present As More Attractive.” I beg you to take a look at the first paragraph. Only three sentences, yet packed with enough mistakes and incoherence to fill an entire article.
