“announced its best of the web…”

Ok guys, for a company that’s made a big deal about how important it is to hire good writers, you really should use “it’s” and “its” correctly.

“Its” is used the same way as “his” and “hers.” If Bob Forbes had announced “his best of the web,” you wouldn’t use an apostrophe. Same here.

“It’s” means “is is.” Never. Anything. Else. “It’s hot out today.” “It’s almost time to leave.” “It’s nice of you to make me dinner.”

All hail the grammar nazi!

Actually we hire humans and humans make mistakes. Thanks for pointing it out. It’s been corrected.

No, seriously. This kind of mistake is amateurish writing that mars content just as badly as, say, a pointless drop shadow or bevel does.

“If you think every pixel matters then you also need to think every letter matters.” If Copyrighting is Interface Design, then good grammar means putting the pixels in the proper place.

Yes, seriously, We know and agree. And yes, seriously, we fixed it. Thanks again for pointing it out.

Could this list have been any more useless? I nominate this Forbes for “worst of the web.”
