This exchange reminds us of so many blog posts and comment threads that we can all relate. I can think of a couple right here at Neatorama that fit this diagram perfectly. The same thing happens at thousands of websites every day. Leave it to Doghouse Diaries to frame a noticeable trend so succinctly.
3. lighten up
4. over their heads
5. freedom of speech
Of course, you could add 7. fringe rant (in all caps), 8. Godwin, 9. name-calling, and of course 10. typo/grammar, but that wouldn't flow so well and would make for an unnecessarily long comic.
I should be the last person to complain about proofreading. Even though I do proofread, I miss typos at an alarming rate. Then again, you don't know how many times I've inserted a typo just to get a comment.
However, when your sign specifically brags about attention to detail, you'd better look it over. This one contains both a typo and a grammar error. So was it a drunk sign painter or a very good Photoshop? It's my favorite picture out of Buzzfeed's list of 27 Reasons Why You Should Always Proofread. I also like Mom's response to a knock knock joke.
