Should you give this writer a ‘performance review’?

If you were reviewing the performance of the writer of this headline on Yahoo! Shine, what grade would you give?

quest mark shine

Knowing where to place punctuation should be a basic requirement of any headline writer. I’d give the writer an F for the placement of the question mark (it belongs after the closing quotation mark). But I’d award some bonus points just for knowing that a question mark is required.
