People who leave a comment without actually correcting your entry

This is going to be a short rant. >:(

I don't know if it's just me but I've noticed a slight uptick of people just copying and pasting your text and leaving it as a comment. I mean, why bother doing that if you aren't going to correct my entry? Is it because people want you to think that you've done something for them even if you haven't? Or is there some other ulterior motive I'm not aware of?

I'm sorry if I sound really pissed off. I just feel like this trend really takes a way from the whole "helping each other learn a new language".


I probably just didn't look hard enough at what's been left by those who leave comments in entries. Sorry about that guys!

Philip Justin that seems very strange. Are you sure? Sometimes when I read one of my texts that was corrected only slightly with no highlights I wonder where the corrections are and assume wrongly that I did right. If you are working on a laptop or a desktop you can use

Hi @Philip, sorry but I could not find "uptick" in my dictionary, so I replaced it. If it is in another dictionary, then I apologise.
