FULL DISCUSSION
 

Thank you for posting. I agree with your overall message; however, I wouldn’t discount the importance of grammar. Like software languages, natural languages have rules and structure to aid in successful interpretation. Whether you’re writing code or writing an article, if it’s full of errors then it won’t compute. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with a little code smell here and there.

What if we applied good coding practices to natural language writing? Such as:

  • Use a purpose built natural language editor such as MS Word or Google Docs.
  • Have someone code review or proofread before going public.
  • Pair programming with someone at a higher level will increase quality.
  • Have an open mind and be acceptable of constructive criticism.
  • Keep learning, keep practicing and don’t give up.

P.S. My comment is in response to the content of this post and not its grammar. Thanks again!
