  1. This article’s title sounds like it was written by an illiterate Neanderthal. “7 Wonders of World” – come on. This should be titled – using correct English and time frame – ‘The 7 Wonders of the Ancient World”. See how I put the descriptor ‘Ancient’ in there. Also ‘of’ is a needed preposition in the English language, and the word ‘the’ – a definite article describing the proper noun ‘World”. This is what it’s like to get schooled by what illiterate idiots call ‘ Grammar Nazi’s’. Trying to negate their own stupidity by attempting to re direct their own asininity by using the word – Nazi. To me it’s as effective as calling me a ‘Grammar Racist’ – the last gasp of an idiot out of arguments and ideas. I would not even go through this 3 minutes of typing if this was in response to someone just leaving a comment. This is about the alleged ‘author’ of this piece. I don’t use the words piece or author lightly either. Language matters and everyone that reads and speaks English that writes for other people to read should understand that. If you want to use pigeon english, slang and hand signals – do that with your buddies.
