Steve Huff: Use of Language v. Credibility
In reply to sroute, Nov 28, 2012

"But being honest 100%, the RX1 is a giant killer..literally." (Italics added.)

Steve Huff's stubborn insistence on misusing "literally" drives me up a wall - not literally, of course.  I've submitted comments on his site when he has done this, but he has never posted any of them, nor apparently taken them seriously.

When I see people misuse or overuse "literally," it lowers their credibility in my eyes. It might sound silly to some, but I believe there's a correlation between the intellectual rigor involved in using language properly (and the ability to take criticism on board when one uses language in a sloppy way) and the critical faculties necessary to make a meaningful evaluation of a piece of camera equipment.

His RX1 samples do look pretty good though...
