    Angry You sent me an email and misspelled Camaro?

    I'm extremely disappointed in GM Inside News. You sent me an email entitled (sic): "Reader's Choice Awards, Camero Keeps To Tradition, And The 2015 Chevy Colorado - December 2013"

    Gimme a break. If you are running a site focusing on GM, you cannot misspell the name of an iconic GM nameplate. GRRRRR!

    I could swear I once offered to proof some of GMI's stuff.

    As for Camero, somewhere out there there's a hilarious thread by IROCNROL1 about Camero Superb Sports and such.

    You are really going to reference a great thread and not link to it? For shame.

    I have a feeling that the monthly digest isn't edited by any members of the GMI staff.

    Meh.

    Yep, we don't put that together. That's done by a machine.

    Thanks Obama.

    What's funny is that in the actual email, Camaro is spelled correctly in both title and the blurb.

    Machines don't make typos...it was probably done on AutoGuide's end.

    Don't even get me started.

    Those of us that run the site, do NOT send that e-mail out or have anything to do with it.

    It should be Readers' as well.

    Unless it really does only have one reader.

    Re: You sent me an email and misspelled Camaro?

    Sorry about this. We have a member of our staff who write all the newsletters every month. I'll make sure to let him know about the spelling error in this month's newsletter so that he can fix it.

    Thanks

    - dm, community support

    Update: I looked into the issue. The guy who writes our newsletters uses the threads that are nominated. The thread where this was pulled from http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...es-modern.html originally had a spelling mistake for Camaro which would explain the typo in the Newsletter. At this point it is to late to make the edit because the newsletter was sent out.

    In the future we will be make sure to spell check Camaro first.

    Without getting "dinged" what exactly caused, and how exactly did the Big man's name get thrown into this?
