Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
The only thing more offensive than an online hate message is an online hate message with a linguistic faux pas.
The Expert Editor, an Australian editing company, is taking a stand against an online epidemic that has run rampant since the earliest days of the internet—trolls with bad grammar.
Brendan Brown, the founder of The Expert Editor, says that if someone is going to post absurd messages on the Internet, they might as well do it in correct English.
“We’re reaching out to trolls from across the country to let them know that they can run their work past our professional editors at http://www.experteditor.com.au. We’ll proofread their problems with word choice, readability, spelling and grammar so that their Internet enemies will focus on their outrageous viewpoints, not their egregious syntax,” says Brendan.
News website comment sections, online bulletin boards and social media posts are riddled with linguistic abuses. Complete sentences have become a thing of the past in the rage filled anonymous exchanges that take place on the World Wide Web. Trolls have hit a new low (and they were already pretty close to the ground down there).
The Expert Editor is issuing a challenge to all trolls to reach out for help before they reach out to hate. There is no reason that elementary errors in language and expression should get in the way of a troll’s core message: “You’re an idiot,” not “your an idiot”.
Professional editing services can be expensive, but The Expert Editor is now offering them to trolls free of charge as part of their commitment to restore a level of decency to the internet’s most vicious verbal exchanges.
“In these trying economic times, we understand that many trolls may have the desire to improve the quality of their online content, but lack the financial resources to do so,” says Brendan. “We believe that everyone has the right to harass strangers online with the confidence that their insults are well written and error free.”
Brendan says that free editing for trolls can be considered a public service of sorts. “Delinquent troll grammar has become a huge problem. We want to be part of the solution,” he says.
Of course, troll grammar abuses will never be eradicated from the internet completely, but Brendan believes his company’s program is a step in the right direction.
“We’re changing the world, one hate post at a time,” he says.
