Dev.to needs proofreaders. I had to read the opening sentence three times to unscramble it and since the rest of the paragraph continued in the same vein, I just couldn't be bothered reading past the opening. I appreciate the effort, but the rambling unedited verbal style just put me off. Grammar has value and not using versals means it's harder to understand when the sentence starts, so you lose the inner voice.

Hello carl,
Thank you for your comment. I also believe that the language and grammar are very important for reading and understanding articles as you think you too. So thank you for your comment and I will work on it and develop it so that there are no mistakes in writing in the future

Hi, Nada. Thanks for your mature reply. I know it is a bit off-putting to have "grammar nazis" poke at your work, but I just wanted to disclose that I was acting under a misunderstanding of the professionality of Dev.to: I was under the impression that Dev.to was a curated site that invited people to write content. I was unaware that it was actually open to all to post whatever they wanted. Had I been aware of this earlier, I would not have the presumably harsh tone I might have come across as. It was more directed at Dev.to than yourself, as I thought they had an editorial process of some kind. Now that I know you were "a happy amateur" testing the waters, I am sorry for coming across as a bit abrasive. I know it is scary to post something in the techosphere. Good luck with your next endavours!
