From a writing advice Web site:
"As someone who isn't trained as a designer (but who has worked with many designers over the years, and knows the benefit of great design), the following advice is going to sound paradoxical, yet..."
I always cringe when I read poorly written writing advice on a writing Web site. Shouldn't these publishing people know better?
This sentence came from a piece on Web site design, but still.
Here's the problem:
"As someone.... the following advice..."
Is "the following advice" someone? I think not.
Watch your misplaced modifiers, people.
