Why is it so hard for people to say, “hey, you’ve got a spelling mistake here,” instead of being a jerk about it?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, writers aren’t robots. And just because we’re paid doesn’t make us immune. Humans make mistakes (this person did in their tweet, in fact). Even with 6 sets of eyes proofreading a particular piece, errors slip through. I’m perfectly happy to correct mistakes, I want to correct them! But politeness goes a long way.

Derailing 101: when less than intelligent internet users try to stick it to us women folk with opinions
Someone who’s never visited or commented on our site before (yes, I checked) posts a comment they believe makes a vital “point” when in fact, they’re just showing their ignorance and prejudice. The Mary Sue is a geek girl culture blog, the James Gunn incident was squarely in our purview. To claim Susana doesn’t care about serious issues around the world is erroneous and an attempt to discredit her very valid opinions and concerns on the topic at hand. We get this kind of thing a lot in our chosen profession which, to be sure, is one we enjoy. So while I normally wouldn’t waste my time on someone who chooses to make this type of comment on our site (over a month after the article was posted I might add) I felt the world should know this is not a line of reasoning that will get you anywhere.
And FYI, Batwoman was the character in question, not Catwoman. Batwoman is an open, kick-ass lesbian with her own solo title at DC Comics.
I might have also made a Daenerys Targaryen My Little Pony. @GameOfThrones

I look forward to hearing from you,
Please, someone, make this #BreakingBad episode happen.
