It seems the quality of communication has been declining for some time. It goes across all disciplines; design, photography, writing— even standard business communications. The irony is that technology today has never offered more options for communicating— text, email, social media, etc. But send someone an email with 3 questions and see if you get a reply with 3 answers. I touched on typos and grammatical errors in social media posts in a previous entry here. I continually come across errors that not only register as mistakes, but actually change the intended meaning—and not in a good way. It’s now kind of an amusing hobby to see these (and there are plenty) and ponder which version is better— what I think they meant or what they actually wrote (and submitted).
You have to keep an eye on those troublesome elves.
