There are a few grammatical errors in the API documentation.

FAIL

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

    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

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).
