I’m puzzled by the inconsistencies between paragraphs of this comment. You seem to think teenagers do shoddy work and you seem to think the author is a teenager.

That’s not inconsistent at all. Given the subject matter, and the level of research demonstrated it really struck me as something a high school journalist might right to support the college application.

Yet her article is tightly crafted journalism and your response is rambling and factually disarrayed, taking premises for granted left and right without spending the least effort one verifying them.

I can’t really take you very seriously here. When Americans peak about ‘tightly craft journalism’ then point to this I think “Wow it’s like they’re abused spouses who think it’s okay for their partners to beat them”.

It took me a Google search and a single click to find out that the author graduated college in 2009.

That’s super creepy dude. Did you check out her address on google maps too?

Making things up or pulling them from pithy “common sense” stuff that drunken people say at pubs and being very confident about your conclusions from these data does not actually make them true.

Actually the author has already quoted sources which you can read at your leisure. It’s just that she dismisses them with ad hominem. You can’t say there’s no body of literature, when the author herself has already introduced it.

Yes you are right, I did make a mistake. I assumed this was written by a teenager. Because it read like it.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
