I know its nitpicking, but the proofreading really needs to be more thorough. Almost every article I read has a typo in it, and its just not a professional presentation.
It did not used to be this way. Only in the last few months have things started slipping. I can let it slide from a publication occasionally, but its become a regular occurrence.

Seriously, though, I used to proofread Peter's article-style posts for gdgt for a while. The only possible complaint you would have is that I am a bit of a "comma Nazi." I insist on Oxford commas, and I recommend a lot of comma use around interjections and asides to improve the clarity of the sentence. It annoys people when they start reading through a sentence then have to back up and read it again because they realize they were reading the wrong tone into it due to a lack of clarifying commas.
