There is always someone on-line willing to make time to correct each other's grammar.
They have their own logo

Which makes the whole thing even more hilarious considering that person uses grammatically incorrect pronouns, and purposely misspells things, making their comments difficult to read.

No attempt at all to achieve the 2 main purposes of discussion:

1. To learn
2. To persuade
So we've all learned a little Latin.
Sic - Wikipedia
The Latin adverb sic ("thus", "just as"; in full: sic erat scriptum, "thus was it written") inserted after a quoted word or passage indicates that the quoted matter has been transcribed or translated exactly as found in the source text, complete with any erroneous, archaic, or otherwise nonstandard spelling.
Next up—stet
Stet - Wikipedia
Stet is an obelism, used by proofreaders and editors to instruct the typesetter or writer to disregard a change the editor or proofreader had previously marked. It is a form of the Latin verb sto, stare, steti, statum.
