Time to tap a new editor

Maybe it’s time for the folks in charge of the Yahoo! front page to tap a new editor — one with a better command of English:

fp is tabbed

As a verb, tab means “to strike the Tab key on a keyboard” or “to add a tab to an item.” It does not mean “to pick, choose, or designate.” That word would be tap.

    Maybe “tabbed” is a term of art in that industry. And maybe they wrote themselves into a corner, aiming for “is chosen”, but seeing that that just wouldn’t work.

    One should be charitable towards the less fortunate.
