As someone who hopes to improve in several aspects of my life, I always welcome constructive criticism, ones that will help me get better. But the way he went about it was unexpected.
He left a comment asking if I wrote the article myself and how much of the content was copied. In reply, I asked if he has seen the same work elsewhere. What I had in mind at first was that someone might have reposted the article elsewhere as I have experienced with a few of my posts in the past. Instead of explaining better or advising me on how to improve the post, he went on with somewhat insulting comments.
When I visited the notification page, I read the first line of his three comments but when I clicked to read the full message, I couldn't find them, he deleted them - Why?
Then I decided to visit his page to inquire about the reason for his actions. When I did, guess what?
Yes, he has blocked me.
That was the last I heard from him until someone contacted me a few days ago about the post that he called me a "fraudster".
First off, I may not have a good command of English and I might have put in less effort in a few of my "ridiculous articles", but I'm not a fraudster.
His first issue with my post was the mistake of typing Elon Musks instead of Elon Musk.
The guy doesn't even know how the name is pronounced...Elon Musks, Macronald? And you will teach us? Lol.
Perhaps he read the post with error hunt on his mind. If he had read further he would have seen other instances where I got the name right.
About the "Musks effect..." mistake, it should have been "Musk's Effect..." - I didn't include the apostrophe. A mistake by many when writing the possessive form of some words e.g. "it's" and "its".
Dear Pantera, MacRonald is not perfect, I've never claimed to be a good writer, I still have a lot to learn, and I am... I make mistakes and a lot of factors could have contributed to those made in that article.
You also make mistakes.
These were typos from Pantera's article. I only read the lower half of the post, around where my name was mentioned. You could probably find more if you read the whole content.
He has blocked me so I can't leave a comment. So someone who cares can simply point out the typos to him for corrections. Not criticize him for putting little effort into his posts - proofreading the article could have corrected the errors.
The whole post by the way looks like it is translated or paraphrased from somewhere else since he is using words that are rarely used even by native English speakers like:
"figating" ! I don't know if this is even a word
"like a running stomach" ??? Is this an English expression?
"Figating" was a misspelling of the word "fidgeting". Now you know.
"Like a running stomach", should I be sorry for using an expression common among my people?
There are probably more typos and other errors in the article. You could point them out to me and I will do my best to work on them. Thank you.
That article was 30% plagiarised too as it was expected and perhaps with a huge paraphrasing with the use of online tools this could have been reduced from 100% plagiarism. Of course no shits given by Macronald, no links are mentioned
I'm guilty of one thing - not mentioning the sources I got the information needed for the article. But most of the content was mine and I have never used a paraphrasing tool or whatsoever to make my contents unique.
Crediting sources is the last thing I do whenever I write. In the end, I'd add reference links to some of my articles, but sometimes I get distracted... And end up publishing the article without crediting the sources. My bad... I apologize and promise to do better subsequently.
Please don't judge me based on mistakes in some articles. You can read the articles here and there, then make a general comment.
About the block:
...he blocked me thinking that maybe this way I won't be able to read his ridiculous articles.
Pantera probably forgot that he blocked me after he deleted the comments on my post, not the other way around.
I welcome corrections and criticism done in good faith, not one to pull others down. I have never claimed to be a great writer and many of the older users who have been reading my posts could attest to it. I even made a post about it in which I stated my struggles penning down my thoughts as well as my poor command of English and the need to improve on it.
Today, I'm a better writer than I was several months ago, with lots of room for improvement. I hope to improve with every content - ensuring I credit content sources and improve my command of English among others. And I could do even better with a bit of encouragement from better writers.
Dear Pantera, I hold no grudge against you, but I hope you learn to treat people better and also work on your anger and your engagement with others. In case you get to see this, you may want to correct your typos in your post "The cheat circle from a certain country".
But what do I know, I'm just a pathetic "fraudster" who can't spell Elon Musk correctly.
