So I used to be a regular reader, than I answered a bunch of questions and was part of the community. Heck I answered questions for a few months. I really like the concept of the site because I like to see obscure usage and I have gotten back into writing.
More often than not I only come to the site because of seeing a "Hot" question on the right when I am on another SE site. Today I clicked on - Phrase to describe a moving goal that is forever just out of reach
I have to tell you that my expectations are extremely low because I realize that many of the top users (volume wise) have very poor English skills and often English is not their native language. Well even my low expectations weren't met. An answer with 30 upvotes and accepted as right is not only horrible but has THREE horrible examples. ZERO FOR THREE of the answers fit the question. Holy cow!! And this is a user with a very high reputation on our site.
So my meta question is how can a site function when the ignorant are fvoting for ignorance? Let's say you had a friend who was an English professor and loved English usage. Would you send her here or would you be embarrassed?
