There are a few grammatical errors in the API documentation.


This should obviously read “Delete a comment identified by its id.” This isn't 4chan!

Comments about punctuation... with multiple exclamation marks? –  Ben Barden Apr 9 '13 at 17:57

It's preferred to point out a grammatical error without the excess moral revolt. –  djechlin Apr 9 '13 at 17:58
@djechlin Is that a fact? –  sehe Apr 9 '13 at 17:58
@sehe it's my opinion, much as the title of this question and the first comment are. –  djechlin Apr 9 '13 at 17:58
@sehe It is. There are people who prefer it (like djechlin). Therefore, it is preferred. –  Ben Barden Apr 9 '13 at 17:59
Somewhere the author of this documentation is grinning, thinking "that took them way too long to notice". –  Bart Apr 9 '13 at 18:00
@Bart, or they're busy building a giant apostrophe. –  Frédéric Hamidi Apr 9 '13 at 18:01
OMG!!! Bad grammar is something up with which we should not put! –  Matt Apr 9 '13 at 18:10
"This isn't 4chan!": I've been doing it all wrong the whole time!! –  Felix Apr 9 '13 at 18:52

This is true. It should be fixed. The degree of intensity with which you push your point may be a bit excessive. While we're at it, the description for /users/{ids}/questions/featured /me/questions/featured has an erroneous comma. Arguably, the description for /access-tokens/{accessTokens} should have a period instead of a comma (going by the format of the page as a whole).
