I hate to be "that guy" but are downvotes really warranted here? Wouldn't it be sufficient to provide a correction?

I'm pretty sure it was the arguably-wrong nitpick combined with crappy grammar that sunk it.

I try not to down-vote just for differing opinions from my own, although my emotions do get the better of me occasionally. However, if I see bad grammar it's just automatic.

Even were he correct, it was a worthless comment.
