    proof read ur articles before they are published.. certainly not “necessary” but syntax errors like “used every day to day”, and “and an strong password can protect your self from hackers and scammers.” have a negative impact on ur perceived authority on the subject. I, for one, am far less likely to heed ur warnings and advice in light of such mistakes.
