Features, Office Since everybody in the technology world is apparently having a vacation, and nobody told me about it, we're kind of low on news. As such, this seems like the perfect opportunity to gripe about something I've always wanted to gripe about: a number of common mistakes in English writing in the comments section. I'll also throw in some tidbits about my native language, Dutch, so you can compare and contrast between the two.

And it's not a mistake, per se, but when did "lol" become punctuation? I know it's a prejudicial bias - but I really have a hard time taking someone seriously when they end a sentence that way lol.

Same with "haha", I'd like to add. It makes the author seem uncertain about what he/she writes, like how you chuckle nervously when talking in real life.
