But it really IS a terrible piece of writing. The commenter's post is just normal no-caps MB-speak, but the article is painfully overwritten and ungrammatical:
"The trenches of adversity foster bonds with ungodly strength. Factor in blood relation, and the magnitude of the strength flourishes."
"And then his timid, nervous posture snaps and with it the corner of his mouth reaches his eyes."
"Though, regardless of when it began, thereâ€™s aspects cemented into his brain. Like the father figure he never had, and the high school coach which, whether intentional or not, slid into that role."
This kind of language very rarely gets into print. It's far from surprising that someone would point out its conspicuous poor quality. The author is probably a student; I'm wondering where the school paper's editor was when that issue was being put together.
