: Hold up. For a post supposedly complaining about the wild grammatical errors in the "Did you know:" section in the loading screen, you're clearly saying there is no problem but you're just mad about it because reasons? > When commas are used to link independent clauses, often the second clause lacks a subject. Dependent clauses are often used incorrectly. Clauses linked together by a comma where the follow-up does not have a subject means they are clearly dependent.

Gotta love the community for avoiding talking about the problem and instead attempting to criticize the one bringing up the issue. You could've easily agreed with me and said that grammar was important based on where you're coming from. Instead you made nonsensical comments suggesting that serial commas and fragments had nothing to do with grammar. You were unable to imagine a sentence like this one with two independent clauses where the second should have a subject but doesn't, and that's something you'd run into on loading screens within just a few games. You correctly identified a spelling error, but you incorrectly tried to label a perfectly normal, commonly used sentence format as awkward phrasing. Your suggestion that I'm "mad" about this because "reasons," implying I have no valid reasons, calls into question your reading comprehension abilities. Almost every Did You Know text contains one or more glaring grammatical errors that anyone with a basic middle school reading level would spot. I realize this leaves you out. These errors reflect badly on the game, but they could be a good opportunity for you to practice identifying sentence structure to better inform your posts and may therefore serve a good purpose.
