    I remember that OKCUPID data gurus wrote something up about unusual correlations between . They found a correlation between those who said that “grammar mistakes irked them “and political conservatism. (IIRC, they also found a correlation between those who said “they would sleep with someone on a first date” and those who “enjoy the taste of beer.”

    I recognize that professional writing demands good grammar, but the more you write, the more likely you are to make errors. (The answer of one of my relatives is to post things rarely, which is not really a solution).
