When someone fails to do something, it's disingenuous to say they did it.
Anon made a good point.
Obama changed things.
Russians hacked the election.
OP made a good a thread.
The proper way to say it is:
Anon tried to make a good point.
Obama tried to change things.
Russians tried to hack the election (though even then, I think influence might be a better word).
OP is a flaming faggot.
'But why bother?' you might ask. Because knowing how to words goodly makes you more convincing than someone who says wrong things but MEANS something correct. It's up to you to communicate clearly, not others to divine your true message.
