I have been toying with the idea of sending users who fail to read the article (and leave a snarky comment) with a one week, all expenses paid vacation away from the site. I am open to criticism, corrections, feedback and the like. I can’t stand pedantry,

    I think going that far with it just calls attention to those few bad apples, and gives them a spotlight. Those kinds of people don't stick around here long anyway, so I don't think it's necessary to do a call out and a week long ban. Plus, by doing this it's just generating more TTAC clicks to look at something bad. We don't need any more negativity round here.

    If it'd said "North America", sure. There's only one country with "America" in its name, and there are two with [accounting for translation] "United States". "America" is thus, for the pedants, *less ambiguous* than "United States". (Mexico being the other. God bless Vespucciland.)
