Who oversees the editing?

Who oversees the editing of Yahoo! Finance blogs? I’m guessin’ it’s someone overseas — maybe in a non-English-speaking country. How else would you explain this?

The duplicated about isn’t horrible. And I thought that overseas was a typo until it popped up again in the actual article:

    I swear they use an algorithm with a spelling glitch inbuilt.

      I love that idea! But the fact is, the Yahoo writers don’t need help with misspellings or homophonic errors. They can handle those on their own.

    REALLY GOOD GREAT JOB LAURA

    ALSO, IT’S NOT CALLED YAHOO! ANYMORE

    JUST YAHOO

    TOUGH DAY IN THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE FOR YOU?

      I see you’ve found the Caps Lock key on your keyboard. (Just so you know: All caps is considered rude — in fact, yelling — on the Internet. Someone really should bring you up to speed on netiquette.) Thanks for the information about the change in the name of your employer.
      Sorry to burst your bubble, but I have never stood in an unemployment line. Fortunately for me, I got a good education (you might try going back to school and get that GED) so that I no longer have to work.

      Go to http://www.yahoo.com Then tell us what it says. (But first, we have to wait about 2 seconds for the cute little “!” to fly in from the sidelines.) Maybe they figure that’ll take our minds off the atrocious spelling.

      (For those new to this Internet thing, a post or comment in all caps is equivalent to shouting.)

    Hey, samson, how come Yahoo still employs you after your 5th DUI?
