Ao3 is down! Oh the humanity!! I may have to go to sleep like a sensible person, the horror. Ugh.

XD (Why yes, I am aware of my own ridiculousness)

I left a comment on a story on AO3 earlier that basically amounted to "I liked the story but there were a few issues like, for example, you used the wrong word here and here (I think)". Someone else has left a response to my reply saying basically "I hate when people comment with issues of grammar or vocabulary, they clearly don't know that not everyone has a beta. This story was flawless." Firstly, I only commented because it could be a good story with more care. Secondly, if it was "flawless" it would not be riddled with issues. Thirdly, fuck-off, don't tell me what to say in a comment. I wasn't horrible or mean, I was just trying to point out a glaring mistake that pulled me out of the story so the person could fix it. And, lastly, there's plenty of people about willing to take a look at things if you just ask so "I didn't have a beta" isn't really an excuse. Hell, if the OP had left it to one side for a day or two, then reread it they would probably have picked up on it. It's really not that hard to do.

Also, I work so hard to not let my inner English Teacher come out and try and beta every single bloody fic I come across (Esp when I like the idea of the story) but this was a tiny little thing. If people aren't told when there's an issue then how are they ever supposed to improve?

I miss tag filtering at AO3.

That is all.
