I’m beginning to feel sorry for this Yahoo! Shine writer, who obviously has problems with spelling, grammar, punctuation, and even facts and who doesn’t have the support of a competent editor. Under the right circumstances, she might be successful. But working for Yahoo!, she’s doomed to continue to embarrass herself and her employer before millions of readers.

A comma is almost as cool as a semicolon or a period, isn’t it?
You’ll get no snark from me. I’m feeling a little sorry for this writer whose chosen career presents her with so many challenges. Just a little.
