How long should it take for an AM grammar police person to find an error in one's postings after the posting has been made?

I don't think they are doing their job very well if a spelling or punctaution error is not spotted and a correction order issued within 30 minutes of the posting.

      (I dont  think they are doing their job very good if . . . I don’t think they are doing their job very well if a)

    Too many spaces before the word “think”.

    Very good. After 9 pm you will be allowed 2 hours to find errors and make corrections until 9 am.. So set your alarm device.

    The Grammar Police are currently having staffing shortages.  Therefore, it may take longer than usual for them to find and flag any errors.  They regret any inconvenience this may cause.

    Randy?  Randy?  There’s a participle dangling from the freeway overpass.  Are you going to put down those fries and respond to it sometime today? This post was edited by Livvie at September 14, 2021 8:52 AM MDT

    They need to catch them while they’re still fresh so I don’t notice and correct my own mistakes before they see them.
