[citation][nom]kingnoobe[/nom]I'm not much for correcting people.. But damn.. Come on guys lol.[/citation]This article is a minefield of written-language screw-ups. Spelling mistakes, missing words, grammatical errors, half-written phrases that seem to have been changed partway through...

Must be some kind of new record!

I don't expect the most polished articles in the world on this site but my god this article was bad. I am still not sure wtf he was talking about. Can we get a translator and at least someone pretending to edit these articles? This is the first comment I have left in months and it is sad that my motivation was how poorly written the article was.

Mr. Douglas Perry needs to go back to school and learn to write. I could write better than this when I was 12, and to see an editor of a major online tech site post slop like this just embarrasses me.

Did Toms begin out-sourcing their articles to India? This article is a new low in language skills

I accidentally the whole article.

Seriously... how does this kind of garbled mush even get posted? Does anyone even glance at these before they click the 'Post to news' button??

Either the picture or the article has bad info. The item in that picture is not even remotely close to 3cm^3. Maybe 0.03cm^3.

"stainless steel, a material that is prone to corrosion..."

Hey editor... look up "stainless steel" !

I have stainless steel hardware all over my boat and 12 yeas of ocean and salt spray have not caused any 'corrosion'.

There are several conditions that will indeed cause "stainless steel" to suffer from corrosion. Being the type of site that this is I am sure most of you who read this are capable of finding info on this on your own.

[citation][nom]SSinfo[/nom]There are several conditions that will indeed cause "stainless steel" to suffer from corrosion. Being the type of site that this is I am sure most of you who read this are capable of finding info on this on your own.[/citation]Metallurgy is a surprisingly complex subject. There's so many alloys being used today, just saying "stainless steel" doesn't tell you the whole story (as you are no doubt aware).
 
[citation][nom]bluekoala[/nom]I love how the the low quality of the article is far more impressive than the genius breakthrough it's supposed to explain.[/citation]

I think that it's understandable given how badly the article explained the topic.
