There, their, they're. You can say what you like but there are readers who judge content based on its (not it's ! ) style and correctness.

Web magazines are not exactly the last bastion of acceptable grammar. I don't doubt that he asked another millennial or two and was told "Looks fine to me." It won't stand out in that context. We're just too old, I guess, guys. I do wonder about the 'professional proofreader' though. Nice work if you kin get it.

I suspect that those of us who actually notice and care about these things are a tiny, dwindling minority, and on an informal forum where much posting is hurried stream-of-consciousness, I'm not going to jump on anyone for grammar unless it makes what they've written completely unintelligible. I spend enough time going back and editing my own there/their/they're/it's/its/your/you're/singular-plural agreement etc. finger troubles/brainfarts here to get on anyone else's case about them. Writing for publication or professional reasons is another matter.

I think it's more that those who will still comment on these mistakes are a tiny minority, but that there remains a substantial plurality who either notice but ignore them, or are bothered by these things but don't comment on them. My housemate is one of those - although she did get ticked off by a presidential candidate who misused "infer" in a public forum last week.

Count me as part of the “silent plurality” - if I corrected grammar and spelling I’d be doing that more than reading for content.
