I love sentence fragments. Love them.

On the people thing -- I was being snide. Or I thought I was. You missed it. Guess I wasn't snide enough.

And as to the Incline and the Gruv. I don't know what they are, and from what I read on here, I don't want to know. The internet stuff I see is already bad enough. And I don't have any friends at either place. I don't know the names used here. And I should think it absolutely kills you when someone uses the word "and" to start a sentence. Would be my guess.
(It that last one a sentence fragment? Or is the word "that" understood?)
(And on those last two, have I gone through some convoluted thinking to a presumption? Further, I don't know about you, but I tire of parentheses in a hurry. I've got to find a way out of them.)
Ah. There. That does it.

Here, in a nutshell, is why journalism is dying. Someone asks a thoughtful question worth considering and the resulting conversation devolves into a grammar quarrel. We deserve the sorry state we're in if this is the best we can do

Milly, if you go back through this thread, the deterioration (devolution) began when Onlooker decided to pop off about grammar, having added NOTHING to the dialogue about the merits of these new journalistic vehicles. Someone had some sort of axe to grind, despite the rather silly "denials."

Sentence fragments.

That's how you pad out an article.

In the sports section.
